    How do you take care of an implant?

    take care of an implant

    Caring for artificial teeth, according to many patients, is an optional thing, since the teeth are artificial. This is partly true, caries are not terrible for teeth made of ceramics or other material. However, there are some other dangerous moments such as: periodontitis, gingivitis and other concomitant diseases of the gums and teeth ligaments. That is why it is extremely important to take care of your dental implant and visit a professional dental hygienist frequently.  

    In the early days, it is important to relieve the implanted teeth from serious stress. It is worth eating soft food, for example, cereals, soups, mashed potatoes, etc. In the first two weeks, do not chew on the side where the new teeth are installed, and unnecessarily strain them by chewing solid food. Hygiene should also be gentle, using a soft toothbrush, an irrigator at low power, your doctor will tell you more about this. He will also prescribe you antiseptic gargles and healing ointments.

    After 2 weeks and further it is necessary:

    • carry out full oral hygiene with a toothbrush, dental floss, irrigator (there is a special dental floss for implants and other types of dentures – superfloss, it is wider and has a thickening that helps to clean the dentures).
    • rinse the mouth with prophylactic agents against gum inflammation and inhibiting the growth of oral bacteria;
    • carry out professional cleaning by the dentist at least every 3-6 months.

    Here are some advice from your local dental office in Miami, Fl (dentist at Brickell Dental Care) 

    For single implants (Here at Brickell Dental Care we are using Implant made in USA, Brand OCO BIOMEDICAL )

    1. Clean at least twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush.
    2. Use a low-abrasive toothpaste.
    3. Brush under and around the implant crown.
    4. Use a nylon coated interdental brush to clean hard-to-reach places.
    5. Floss daily with unwaxed tape or implant-specific floss.
    6. Use a recommended oral irrigator.
    Does an implant require special care?

    Many people have questions about how dental implants function. One question that seems to be asked very commonly is whether dental implants require special care. The simple answer is no. In fact, dental implants are seen as low maintenance by patients and dental professionals alike.

    What type of home care is recommended for implants?

    Implant Home-Care Guidelines

    Brush twice daily with low-abrasive dentifrice. Floss with dental tape (mesial/distal and facial/lingual) in shoe shine motion or use a water flosser one to times daily. If recommended, use interdental brush, rubber tip, soft picks, and/or water irrigation unit one to two times daily.

    Do dental implants need to be brushed?

    Dental Implants Can’t Get Cavities—But You Still Need to Brush. The material that’s used to make dental implants can’t decay like your natural teeth can, which means no more cavities or fillings.

    Should I be able to floss under my implant?

    Therefore, flossing around dental implants should be done with extreme caution. You should never push the floss down into the gum pocket. If you fear that you lack the ability to floss around the restoration without disturbing the peri-implant seal, it is best simply not to floss around the implant at all.

    Oral Irrigators/Water Flossers

    Studies have shown that the Waterpik Water Flosser is the only oral irrigator to date that has been proven safe and effective for use with dental implants and effectively reduced plaque buildup and gingivitis in clinical trial patients.

    Can I eat nuts with dental implants?

    Dental implants will improve patient comfort so the foods that were too difficult to eat after tooth loss occurred, including nuts, apples, chips, and popcorn, can be consumed again. Most tooth loss treatments require special care and diet restrictions to prolong their lifespan.
