Dental implants are similar to natural teeth in that both require daily care. The ways that implants are cleaned and maintained, however, differ from natural teeth because implants are made of very different materials than teeth and the implants also attach to the gums and surrounding bone in a different way. While implants will never decay or need root canal treatment it is of paramount importance that the health of the surrounding gum tissue be maintained. A person with dental implants will need to use special, specific kinds of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss in their daily oral hygiene practices. Additional supplies may include mouth rinses and disclosing tablets. Our staff will provide you with the necessary tools and training so that you can maintain your new smile for many years. Perhaps most importantly, it is critical for a person with dental implants to make regular appointments for annual checkups and examinations that frequently include x-rays and professional cleaning.. Any problems or signs of any changes in your oral status need to addressed as soon as possible in order to avoid any possible loss of the implant’s attachment to the bone.
