Dental Implant Care and Hygiene Tips

Maintaining a good level of Care and Hygiene is vital in helping ensure the long-term success and health of your dental implant. Through a combination of regular dental checkups, regular monitoring of the health of the dental implant, and having a strict dental schedule, including brushing, flossing, and dental mouthwash, will help maintain the implant and surrounding teeth & help prevent the collection of bacteria and plaque within the mouth.

These 5 most important implant care and hygiene tips that will help maintain a healthy dental implant, these are;
  • Brush twice, or more, daily this is a rare practice for us as Kenyans but it’s very important.
  • Flossing is extremely important to get rid of the food remains that brushing cannot. Helping ensure that the root itself is not directly susceptible to bacterial/plaque growth.
  • Keep the fizzy drinks and sweets to a minimum, this will help keep low sugar levels within the mouth
  • Mouthwash, twice a day. It’s important that the mouth has on-going protection throughout the day, in-between brushing.
  • Regular brushing of the gums and tongue. Most patients do not realize that gum irritation can be caused by the build-up of bacteria on the gums, leading to Periodontal diseases. Additionally, the tongue itself acts as a sponge for bacteria, so regular cleaning is extremely important
