How to properly care for dental implants?
Brush Your Teeth
Like natural teeth, implants need to be cleaned twice a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste – after eating in the morning and before going to bed in the evening. The protruding parts – suprastructures, as well as the lower part of the implant and gums should be cleaned.
Poor hygiene leads to fixation of dental deposits on the crowns. Dental implants can be cleaned with both electric and traditional toothbrushes with soft bristles. To clean the interdental space, special beams and interdental brushes are used, which easily penetrate into hard-to-reach places.
We should not forget about flosses – dental floss with one-sided thickening. Instead, you can use the so-called superflosses, special devices for cleaning implants and other orthopaedic structures. These threads are thicker than conventional flosses, they penetrate much more efficiently into hard-to-reach places, where they remove plaque and food debris, including in the flushing spaces of dental bridges.
What else is important to remember
Once every half a year, go through a preventive examination with your doctor. This will help the doctor assess the condition of the artificial tooth and notice problems at the initial stage.
No matter how well you take care of your oral cavity, it is impossible to completely get rid of plaque and tartar. Therefore, once every six months, do professional teeth cleaning.
