One of the nicest benefits with dental implants is that you’re able to care for them the same way you take care of your natural teeth. Dental implants require a daily regimen of brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash, but there’s one key difference–when it comes to cleaning your implants, you’ll want to choose gentle hygiene products. That’s because you don’t want to scratch your implants and you also want to avoid irritating the soft tissue around your dental implants.
Your implant fixture and prosthesis are durable and built to last, but certain products such as sodium fluoride can scratch them. Another important issue is protecting the area around your implant from infection. Abrasive cleaning products can aggravate this tissue and make it susceptible to peri-implantitis, a bacterial infection that can threaten the viability of your implants. It’s essential to practice proper home care and continue to visit Dr. Grundstrom Joost for regular checkups so she can monitor your oral health.
