Taking good care of your dental implants is vital for long-term success. Care for your dental implants just as well as you would care for your natural teeth. Thorough oral hygiene is necessary to prevent diseases around the implants. With proper home care and regular professional maintenance, you can keep your new teeth throughout life.
Dentists have an important role to play in keeping dental implants infection-free. We use special instruments for cleaning that will not damage the crown, abutment, or the implant itself. The prevention of peri-implant disease is fundamental to implant health, maintenance and function. And cleaning implants and their related components is an important part of success.
