Once you have your new dental implants in place, you want to make sure they are taken care of properly. Dr. Gerald Middleton of Riverside, CA wants to ensure the care of your dental implants by offering a few simple suggestions.
Brush and Floss twice a day – just like your regular teeth, implants need to be cleaned and flossed to prevent food particles from invading your gums and dental implant structure.
Dental visits twice a year – regular dental visits are a part of normal dental hygiene; however this is especially true for people with dental implants. Your dental implants will need a thorough cleaning and plaque removal. Along with the cleaning, the condition of your gums, jaw and anchors will be checked.
Mouthwash – special germicidal mouthwash is often prescribed by dentists for patients with dental implants. It helps reduce the risk of infection.
Say no to Staining – dental implants can stain the same as normal teeth. So, steer clear of smoking, coffee, tea, sodas and wine.
