One of the major benefits of dental implants is how easy it is to care for them. While dentures must be removed nightly, you take care of your dental implants the same way you care for your natural teeth: by following an effective home care regimen (brushing and flossing twice a day, every day), and visiting Tharp, Klaus, Kelly for regular checkups.
The main difference between caring for your implants and caring for your natural teeth is that you want to select hygiene products that are gentle for use with your implants. It’s important to avoid scratching the implants and you don’t want to aggravate the soft tissue around your dental implant.
One of the most significant risks to implants is peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation of the soft tissue around your dental implants. Peri-implantitis often develops without obvious symptoms. That’s why it’s essential to visit Tharp, Klaus, & Kelly for regular checkups so we can continue to monitor your oral health and the status of your implants.
Your brand-new smile deserves the attention it needs to keep it looking amazing. Just like your natural teeth, dental implants are easy to care for and require simple items to maintain them. If you have any questions about the best items to use, please to do not hesitate to contact our office and speak with one of our team members.
