Dental Implants and Oral Hygiene

Posted on 6 November, 2019  in News

Dental implants are permanent replacements for teeth that are missing or loose and need to be taken out. They are one of the most realistic options you can pick to replace teeth, but importantly, they are also one of the most hygienic. Removable options can be removed to be cleaned, but they have more components that can become dirty throughout the day.

One of the best things about dental implants is that they can be looked after almost exactly like normal teeth. However, it is very important that you look after them well as you need to do everything you can to prevent them becoming infected. Infection could lead to the implant needing to be removed, so it’s important to clean implants thoroughly. Establish a good oral hygiene routine and carefully floss between all teeth and implants twice a day. You should also visit a hygienist on a regular basis.
