Dental implants are possibly the best solution for the loss of natural teeth. They are able to form a healthy and completely natural coexistence with the tissues found throughout the oral cavity.
Proper at-home and in-clinic maintenance is essential in order to prevent possible complications and to ensure long-lasting implants.
In order to achieve this, proper daily oral hygiene is recommended, as well as regular visits to the dentist. Correct oral hygiene includes the use of state-of-the-art brushes and interproximal cleaning with oral irrigators, dental tape and floss and interproximal brushes. This way, patients with implants can efficiently remove bacterial plaque (oral biofilm) that builds up in the areas surrounding implants and throughout the oral cavity.
As a supplement to brushing and interproximal cleaning, the use of toothpastes and mouthwashes that are formulated with antiseptics is recommended for better control over bacterial plaque.
If proper maintenance is not performed, implant wearers might experience peri-implant diseases, putting their implants at risk. In these situations, specific professional dental treatment is necessary.
