How do I care for my implants?
It is easy to care for your dental implants. Since the dental implants emerge through the gums like your natural teeth, brushing and flossing around the implant, just like around a natural tooth, is important. There are many successful ways of brushing your teeth.
One method is known as the modified bass brushing technique, but really any method of brushing that is effective at keeping your natural teeth clean will also be effective for cleaning your dental implants. Flossing is also important to prevent bacteria from accumulating around the sides of your dental implants.
Other additional cleaning devices such as a Waterpik can also be helpful in cleaning around your dental implants. Of course, it is also important to come for a regular dental check-up and cleaning appointments to ensure that your dental implants are staying healthy.
