Does food get underneath dental implants?
For many patients, one of the biggest complaints about removable and partial bridges is that food particles can get stuck between the gum and the denture. The remains of food remain in the oral cavity for a long time, which causes the development of inflammation, irritation of the mucous membranes and bad breath. In addition, if food gets under the denture while chewing, the patient may experience pain or discomfort. Dentures on implants help to avoid discomfort while eating, make the process of wearing a denture more convenient.
Does food fall under single dental implants?
Dental implants with a single crown completely restore the shape and function of one dental unit. After restoration of one lost tooth with a dental implant with a crown, the patient will not experience discomfort when eating, due to the ingress of food particles under the prosthesis. If the crown is securely fixed, there are no cavities or areas under it that would accumulate food debris. If plaque accumulates quickly under the crown, which causes discomfort, the cavity is difficult to clean at home, then this indicates errors in the planning and placement of the implant or crown. It is necessary to contact a specialist. Most often, with a complex clinical picture, patients are recommended to place custom made abutment, which allows more accurate positioning of the crown relative to the implant, which reduces the risk of incorrect positioning. Formation of the correct gingival contour, especially in the area of the anterior incisors, also affects the quality of the prosthetics.
Dental implants are most often made from titanium alloy. This material has a high degree of biocompatibility and is securely retained in the jawbone. After prosthetics, a crown is fixed on the implant. With a high-quality formation of the gingival contour, food does not fall under the gum. However, it is important for the patient to maintain good hygiene and thoroughly clean the gum area that is adjacent to the implant in order to prevent inflammation of the tissues surrounding it. To do this, use a brush and paste. It is important to visit your dentist regularly for prophylaxis and professional hygiene procedures.

Does food get under the dentures on implants?
Fixed prostheses on implants provide a comfortable chewing process, as they are fully supported by artificial supports. Dentures can have several types of gum fit, depending on the condition of the gum. Therefore, food can get stuck under the frame, but this does not cause painful sensations to the patient when using the prosthesis.
After placing a dental implant, the doctor gives recommendations for care and tells you how to clean it properly. Modern designs are easy to clean, they are resistant to external influences, in addition, they are securely fixed in the mouth. They do not fall out or break. A brush and paste are used for daily hygiene. Much attention should be paid to the areas of the gums that are adjacent to the implant. You can also use dental floss on the recommendation of a specialist, as well as an irrigator.
Using an irrigator will gently remove plaque from the surface of your teeth and gums. A stream of water massages the mucous membrane, activating blood circulation. This improves the condition of the mucous membrane and is the prevention of the development of diseases.
Here at Brickell Dental Care we offer two different types of implant crown. The crown can be attached in one of two ways: either with a small screw through the biting surface of the crown into a receiving hole in the abutment or cemented to it. The major advantage of a screwed crown is that it allows for easy removal of the crown if needed.
