Dental Implant Maintenance

Care for Your Implants: How to and Why You Should

The upkeep of dental implants must be prioritised. In truth, if you want to keep your new teeth for good, you need to practise strict regularity in your post-implant care. While we at Gosford Dental Excellence will provide you with the best possible aftercare by following the most recent implant maintenance routine, you should also give some thought to how to care for your dental implants at home, beginning on day one.

While it’s important to avoid things like cold drinks and hard exercise in the days following surgery, the greatest thing you can do for the long-term health of your dental implants is to clean them yourself at home.

Reasons for Dental Implant Maintenance

Prevent infection

Proper dental implant maintenance helps to prevent infection, which can cause inflammation and damage to the surrounding tissues.

Protect oral health

Regular dental implant maintenance helps to prevent decay and gum disease, promoting overall oral health.

Avoid implant failure

Regular maintenance can help identify any issues with the implant or restoration early on, preventing implant failure.

Extend the life of the implant

Proper maintenance can extend the life of the dental implant and restoration, reducing the need for costly repairs or replacement.

Preserve bone density

Dental implant maintenance helps to preserve bone density and maintain the structure of the jawbone.

Ensure overall health

Oral health is closely linked to overall health, and proper maintenance of dental implants can help to prevent systemic health issues associated with poor oral health, such as heart disease and diabetes.
