Efficient  dental  implant care

Dental ImplantsAfter dental implants have successfully integrated with the bone,  you  are  confidently guaranteed  a long-term psychological comfort and a perfect  smile that can help you boost  your self-confidence. However, not only a dental specialist  is  responsible  for  the outcome of the procedure. The  patient  is responsible for dental  implant care  in the postoperative period and  the whole  period of  their service life.  Much depends on the effective dental care.

In fact, improper  implant  care  can cause many problems. Not only  implants  are at  risk of peri-implantitis, but healthy teeth and oral cavity with  improper care  have  the risk of developing   infectious  and  inflammatory processes.  Dental  implant  care is  a  simple procedure that doctors began to train on the first appointment. After surgery you dentist will  give  you  dietary   and  lifestyle recommendations and tell  you  about habits, which can harm dental implants, and  rules of proper care, which  ensure  their long service life.

Your  dentist  will convince you that it is  not difficult to  clean  your  implants properly, but the approach to this process should be complex. Dental   implants require extra  care  only   during  the  implant healing process  and bone’s responses to dental prostheses in terms of  osseointegration.  This   adaptation  period  takes only  the  first two weeks.

What  basic  skills are  needed to properly clean  implants? What dental  accessories  are needed for  cleaning dental implants? It is important to carry out  daily oral  hygiene, i.e. to  brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the  morning and in the  evening, to prevent the formation of dental plaque, to  use a  soft toothbrush, floss, mouthwash and oral irrigators, to undergo  professional dental  cleaning at least  twice a year.

The brush helps to clean all  protruding  portions  of  implants  and  superstructures, the lower portion of the implant and  surrounding soft tissue. Toothbrushes, either  traditional or electric, should have  soft  bristles.  Beam  and   interproximal  toothbrushes are used to clean   interdental spaces as well.  As we have known  proper  brushing  tips since  our  childhood,  the dentist simply tests  our  skills and reminds us  that  the implant  surface  adjacent to the gum should be cleaned more carefully.

Special dental floss for cleaning implants or super-floss  has stiffer ends  and  it is  considerably wider then regular  floss. Super-floss  easily  removes plaque without damaging gums . Do  not  forget  to put on a bit of toothpaste on it. This  makes  super-floss  more gentle and  prevents microscopic damage to the implant  surface.  Be attentive  to your  dentist’s  recommendations about flossing your  teeth and implants .

The specialists of the company  Bio3 Implants advice  us  to use  mouthwash and oral  irrigators  for performing  oral  rehabilitation  and cleaning either  implants or  teeth, that combined  with the dental professional supervision  increases  their service life.
