How Do I Take Care of my Dental Implants?
If you recently had Dental Implants at our Leduc Dental Clinic or you are planning to get Dental Implants, you know the value of having your smile back again. Now that you can eat all of the foods you love again, taking care of that dental implant is likely a priority for you. Dental Implants need to be taken care of in the same way as your other teeth. If you don’t take care of your dental implants, then bacteria will collect near the gum and cause all kinds of problems. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Brush your dental implants in the same way that you would brush your teeth. You should use a soft bristled toothbrush or electric brush. Avoid brushing too hard – take your time brushing slowly and gently. You should spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth.
Floss regularly and make sure to clean around the implants as well. If gums around your implant start bleeding, you should see a dentist right away as this could be a sign of gum disease and can lead to the loss of dental implant if not treated early.
Don't skip regular preventative dental appointments. Professional dental cleaning is recommended every 3-4 months, and yearly check-up with x-rays to monitor bone level. Missing even a few appointments can allow conditions like gum disease to take hold and undermine the health of your dental implant.
However, remember that there are special procedures and care steps you will have to follow right after your dental implant procedure and until the implant is fully healed and fused.
