A report by the BBC last year revealed that many patients who have been fitted with dental implants, are failing to look after them correctly.
If you have had dental implants fitted, it’s vital that you maintain high standards of oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes, using mouthwash and flossing are three important points to follow.
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.”
