Essential Implant Maintenance
Dental implants are a safe, long lasting solution for missing teeth, however their longevity depends on how well they are looked after and whether a patient attends regular dental and hygiene examinations. Implants replicate natural teeth and just like the real thing, it is possible to develop gum disease where they are placed. If this is left untreated, the implants may not last as long.
How to keep implants for longer
Our experienced hygienists will keep an eye on the health of the tissue surrounding the implant and assess if it needs any further treatment. As well as cleaning the implant itself the hygienist will also thoroughly clean your natural teeth so they don’t affect the health of the implant.
They will also devise a daily regime for you to use at home so you can keep your dental implants nice and clean between visits.
