Dental Implant Care Tips in London

July 2, 2013

Dental implants replace the form and function of missing teeth; this is the reason why the implants (and the teeth restorations attached to them) should be properly taken care of. As the implants take on the functional and cosmetic roles of the lost teeth, it is important to ensure that the health of these implants are properly maintained – so that smiles can also be enjoyed for a longer period of time. It is important to ensure good oral hygiene, as well as implant hygiene and restoration; this is beneficial for healthy teeth and bone, as well as implant stability.

Taking Care of Dental Implants

  • Brush your teeth regularly and properly. Even if the implants have replaced the form and function of missing teeth, they will still need to be cleaned to avoid problems such as gum disease.
  • Use dental floss to clean the spaces between the implants (with the teeth restorations) and the gum line. This removes any food pieces that brushing the teeth may not have cleaned away, and prevents the onset of gum problems or other infections.
  • Go to your dentist for a dental checkup on a regular basis. Your dentist will be able to advice you on how frequent your visits should be, but in general it is recommended that you have your dental implants (and your teeth) checked twice a year. The regular dental checkups will enable the dentist to check on the health of your implants, and will also help in the early detection – and treatment – of dental problems.
