Tips To Keep Dental Implants Looking Great



Dental implants become a fact of life as we age. If you have dental implants, you need to know how to take care of them.

Dental Implant Maintenance

Here’s are five things you need to do to maintain those implants:

  1. Have a good relationship with your dentist

    You and your dentist need to be on the same page when it comes to maintaining your dental prosthetic and how to manage it long-term.

    Visit regularly and don’t be afraid to ask questions at every appointment; your dentist will always be happy to answer them.

  2. Your hygienist can provide guidance

    Hygienists can help you by by keeping them clean and advising you on maintenance, so make sure you visit regularly.

    Your dentists and hygienists should be sure to discuss with you the best products to keep your implant system looking and feeling its best.

  3. Take care with scaling

    The various areas of an implant such as the crown, abutment, and implant body have very specific needs during scaling.

    A hygienist will assess your implant and determine the best procedure.

    Understanding your specific needs will allow your hygienist to tailor a treatment that will determine whether biofilm will or a more intensive scaling needs to be done.

  4. Keep watch

    Dental implants aren’t hard to look after, but it should be understood that, after a patient’s oral hygiene routine, dental services are the front line defenders in keeping implants looking great.
