How To Care For Dental Implants
Patients often ask “Do I care for implants like regular teeth?”, “How do I clean my dental implants?” and “Do you have any dental implant cleaning tips and advice?”
At The New Tooth Company, our high quality implants are designed to last. It is still very important however that you properly care for your new implants to minimise any damage, maximise their lifespan.
Caring for your dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. While your new implants cannot get cavities, they can still wear over time. Making sure that you pay close attention to cleaning your implants will reduce the need for unnecessary additional maintenance, and ensure they last for as long as possible, in the best condition possible.
It is important as always that you maintain your usual dental checkups and appointments for professional cleaning, while also making sure you brush and floss regularly to prevent and reduce dental implant wear and long term damage.
Your New Tooth dental implant expert may also recommend cleaning aids, procedures and techniques for postoperative home care in addition to usual dental hygiene. In addition to following your individualised care instructions, you should also consult your dentist or hygienist for additional advice on how to best care for new implants.
