Care for your dental implants
Keep your dental implants clean and fresh
Taking good care of your dental implants is vital for long-term success. With proper home care and professional maintenance, your new teeth can last for life.
How to care for your dental implants
Care for your dental implants just as well as you would care for your natural teeth. Thorough oral hygiene is necessary to prevent diseases to develop around the implants. With proper home care and regular professional maintenance, you can make your new teeth last throughout life. There are various types of implants which may need different home care.
TePe offers a range of products to make cleaning easier. Your dental professional will help you choose the products to suit your particular needs and preferences.
Mucositis (gum inflammation around implants) and peri-implantitis (bone-loss around implants) is caused by dental plaque. Therefore, it is important to clean all implant surfaces, especially between implants and the adjacent tooth. Pay extra attention to the areas where gums and implant meet. Sometimes this can be hard to see where the implant is, so remember to ask your dental professional exactly where your implants are placed. In case pain or suspected inflammation, a dental professional should be consulted as well.
