Caring for Dental Implants

Don’t Forget Routine Maintenance for Your Dental Implants

Dental implants are worry-free, convenient, and effortless, right?

Not exactly. While implants are a safe and effective way to replace missing teeth, many dental implant patients are lacking the knowledge to properly care for their implants. Though it is easy to mistake your dental implants as indestructible porcelain structures, incapable of infection or deterioration, this isn’t the case.

Numerous dental implant experts emphasize the importance of properly caring for your implants as you would for authentic teeth. Philip Friel of the Association of Dental Implantology stresses, “Implants are no different from natural teeth and roots. They must be kept clean and maintained regularly.”

Whether you have one implant or multiple implants, proper knowledge and routine care is required for implants to remain clean, effective, and harmless. Implants should be treated no differently from natural teeth. They are not replacements requiring little to no care. Rather, they should be cared for and examined by a professional on a regular basis.
