Oral Hygiene for Patients with Dental Implants

Oral Hygiene for Patients with Dental ImplantsGood oral hygiene is important for all people, but for those with dental implants, it can be even more important. Dental implants are a technologically advanced procedure that provides an alternative to dental bridges or dentures for those who are missing teeth. They can be used with dental crowns, dental bridges or dentures to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth.

Titanium screws are implanted into the jawbone and used to anchor prosthetic teeth. These implants are designed to function much like the roots of your own natural teeth, and they can last for decades. The success rate is extremely high, particularly when patients follow post-procedure instructions.

Accumulation of plaque or tartar around your dental implant can irritate the gums. Gingivitis, which is caused by poor dental hygiene, can inflame the gums around the implant. If the condition advances to the underlying structures, it can affect the bone that anchors the dental implant and lead to exposure or loosening. Implant failure is more likely to occur in those who have poor dental hygiene, certain health conditions or who smoke heavily.

Brush your teeth twice a day, and floss your teeth daily to keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar. Use an electric toothbrush to ensure more extensive coverage. Use fluoride mouth rinse if necessary, and contact Dr. Mirani dentist, specialist for dental implants in Beverly Hills, immediately if you notice your implant has become loose.
