Dental implants are top-notch appliances that are strong and reliable. However, even though they are strong and reliable, they still need the proper care. If you fail to care for your dental implants, then you can suffer the consequences. So, make sure to clean and care for your restorations regularly. Our dentists, Drs. Domagala and Shango, are happy to help you do so by giving you the tips you need, which are:
-Brush, floss and rinse: Oral hygiene is vital for top-notch dental implants. This is because brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and rinsing with mouthwash daily can clean the implants and remove dangerous substances that threaten the smile and oral health. So, don’t forget to clean your teeth, gums and implants regularly!
-Attend your checkups: The dental cleaning provided at your checkups is very important when maintaining pristine dental implants. This is because it eliminates the plaque and tartar (which is a very toxic substance) from your dental implants, teeth and gums. This helps you prevent gum disease. The dental exam allows our dentist and dental team to ensure your implants, smile and oral health are all in tip-top shape.
