Maintenance for dental implants

Maintenance tips for dental implants

Dental implants go beyond the normal surgical process involved in the fixing of the tooth’s root to the jaw. To ensure the longevity of these implants, there must be constant maintenance, just like our natural teeth. Some of the maintenance tips for dental implants include the following:

  • Brush regularly using a small head brush with soft bristles. This will not only keep the teeth clean but will also prevent gum diseases.

  • Daily flossing is important to prevent buildup between the teeth. This buildup can be detrimental to the implants.

  • Regular dental visits are recommended to always ensure that the right tools are used to clean the implants.

  • Avoid sugary snacks, and consume healthy snacks that will contribute positively to your dental health.
