Clean Your Implants!The most basic and arguably an essential part of taking care of your new teeth is simply to clean them! If you have a single implant, brushing and flossing properly is a great start. Keeping plaque and tartar build up from growing on the implant can reduce your risk of infection in the gums surrounding the implant and can keep the implant from being rejected. It is also the most important way to take care of your natural teeth as well!
If you have a different or special kind of implant, there are other tools that you can get to help get the best clean as well. There are specialty flosses, picks, angled brushes, and a variety of brush head styles (such as single tufted brushes) to get to all the nooks and crannies of your false teeth. It is important to get into the cracks and crevices to keep bad bacteria from building up underneath the tooth.
Come See Us!Coming in for your general six-month appointments means that our hygienists can do a superb deep clean of all of your teeth, and this includes your implant. At these checkups, we are also able to monitor your implant on the sub-gum level to make sure that nothing funky is going on in your jaw.
Your implant can also fall prey to wear and tear and can sustain damage from eating certain foods or from an athletic injury just like a natural tooth. Our dentists will notice if your implant has sustained considerable wear or if it has chipped or cracked. While in our office, we will be able to find the best solution to the problem as well to make it as painless and hassle free as humanly possible.
Whether you just got your implant or if you have had one for quite some time, Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery is here to help make sure that it is in the best care. We will help you to develop a healthy cleaning routine or get you in for cleanings more often if that is necessary. We are here to help after all, and our expert team will answer any and all questions that may arise about your brilliant new smile. Don't hesitate to give us a call today!
