A recent report by the BBC has revealed that many patients who receive dental implants are not looking after them correctly.
It’s vital that you maintain high standards of oral hygiene following dental implants; this means brushing teeth twice a day for two minutes, flossing and regularly using mouthwash.
Giving up smoking and maintaining a healthy diet are also important aspects to consider to improve your oral health.
Philip Friel, from the Association of Dental Implantology, says:
“Implants are no different from natural teeth and roots. They must be kept clean and maintained regularly. If you see any inflammation of the gums or any deterioration of the implant, then tell your dentist.”
