If you have dental implants, you’ll understand the importance of keeping them clean and healthy to maintain their lifespan.
Peri-implant disease is the most common form of infection that can develop around implants.
It’s similar to gum disease around a tooth and is caused by a build-up of plaque. This causes bone loss around your implants and surrounding teeth.
The only way to prevent peri-implant disease is with regular cleaning and maintenance of your implant.
During the coronavirus pandemic, you may not be able to regularly visit your dentist and hygienist, so it’s vital you look after your implants meticulously at home.
We recommend you:
- Brush your implants at least twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush, including under and around the crown of the implant
- Use an interdental brush coated with nylon every day to clean around the implant, or by using unwaxed floss tape or ‘super floss’
The important thing is to maintain a regular oral care routine.
TDC Smile in a Day patients should follow the instructions given for keeping your mouth and dental implants clean.
