Caring for dental implants

Caring for your Dental Implants At Progressive Dentistry, we believe that Dental Implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Much like natural teeth, if you care for them well, they will last a lifetime. Keeping your implants clean is crucial for long term success. It is recommended that your hygienist performs a professional, thorough clean at least twice a year, using specific implant friendly instruments and non abrasive polish. Home care is also very important, so here are some tips for day to day cleaning: - Use a rechargeable electric toothbrush and concentrate on brushing the gum line thoroughly - An alcohol-free, antibacterial mouthwash will help to keep your mouth fresh and the gums in good condition - Ask your Hygienist to show you how to clean in between the spaces around the implant, using interdental brushes and/or floss. Make sure the interdental brush fits snugly into the space, so the sides are kept plaque free - A water pick is a great investment to help you remove trapped debris around the implants. Ask one of our team to help you pick the model best suited to you
