How to Care for Your Dental Implants

Just like caring for your natural teeth, caring for implants is of the utmost importance for both your health and the longevity of your teeth. Not caring for your teeth can lead to problems such as bone loss and the eventual loss of your implant. With this in mind, it is important to know just how one should take care of their dental implant. Here are a few helpful tips that will ensure that your implants are kept in excellent condition.

Treat your implants like you would your natural teeth

In many ways, caring for your dental implants is not any different than caring for your other teeth. Brush and floss twice daily just as before. Just like your natural teeth, dental implants are capable of plaque buildup and should be kept clean. Performing these simple and common tasks is the first step in ensuring the longevity of your implants and the health of your teeth.

Additional care of your implants

Caring for your implants as you would your natural teeth is important but it is only the first step. In addition to this, some other recommended means of care include antimicrobial mouth rinse and tools for removing plaque between teeth like inter-dental brushes. It is also important that you get regular checkups and cleanings to ensure optimal care of your implants.
