If you’re interested in maintaining strong, reliable, natural-looking and natural-feeling dental implants, then you need to do all you can to keep them in tip-top shape. Even though the restorations are strong and reliable, they can’t fend for themselves. So, our dentists, Drs. Huthwaite and Huthwaite strongly encourage you to do everything you can to clean and care for your dental implants. To do so, you can do the following things:
-Brush: It’s very important to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Brushing can help you remove food particles, bacteria and plaque from your dental implants.
-Floss: Flossing can also help you remove harmful substances from your smile, but instead of removing them from the chewing surfaces of the teeth, it removes them from the spaces between your teeth, which can help you maintain top-notch dental implants as well as prevent cavities and gum disease. So, make sure to floss daily.
-Attend your checkups: It’s very important to receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months. This is because the cleaning provided can help you maintain top-notch dental implants and can help you prevent major problems. Your checkups are also a great opportunity for your dentist to make sure your implants are in tip-top.
