Caring for Dental Implants

DentalImplantImageIf you have implants or are considering implants it is important to consider your oral care. Having good oral hygiene habits are always beneficial, but especially so when you have implants. The hygiene of your implant-supported teeth is just as important as that of your natural teeth, as both rely on healthy tissue for support.
After your implants are in place you will want to ensure you’re cleaning around them in the proper way. Dental implants are attached to your bone and gums in a different way than natural teeth, and implants are made of a different material than natural teeth.
Implants are made with titanium, which is a metal that naturally fuses with your bone. Natural teeth have a greater blood vessel supply through which it can bring cells and nutrients, and is therefore more readily able to resist and fight against infection. Therefore, if you are ever concerned with your oral health, especially the tissue and gums around an implant, do not delay – contact your dentist right away.
As with natural teeth, plaque builds up on implants and needs to be cleaned on a daily basis.
At home, it is important to maintain regular brushing and flossing habits for optimum oral health: brushing at least twice a day, in addition to after meals or acidic foods, and flossing at least once a day.
