Caring For Your New Dental Implants

Welcome to our Dental Implant Care Guide for patients who have embraced the transformative benefits of dental implants at our Dental Implant Clinic in Milton Keynes.

To ensure the enduring success of your investment in your new and radiant smile, it’s important that you follow a detailed care regimen. Delve into this comprehensive guide designed to give you the knowledge needed for impeccable dental implant maintenance:

Elevate Your Oral Hygiene:

  • Embrace a twice-daily brushing routine, utilising a soft to medium bristle toothbrush for gentle care.
  • Choose toothpaste wisely, opting for non-abrasive formulas that safeguard the integrity of your implant surfaces.
  • Make interdental cleaning a daily ritual with floss or tepe brushes to remove plaque and debris from the spaces between teeth and around your precious implants.

Oral Health Product Selection:

  • You can use an antibacterial, alcohol-free mouthwash at a different time to brushing to minimise infections without jeopardising the stability of your implants.
  • Steer clear of abrasive or staining agents such as tobacco and excessive coffee, this will help to preserve the immaculate appearance of your dental implants.

Regular Dental Check ups:

  • Visit your dentist twice a year for dental check-ups to check the health of your dental implants.
  • Book with a hygienist regularly for professional cleanings based on their prescription.
  • Keep your dentist informed about your dental implants, allowing for personalised and attentive care.

Guard Against Tooth Grinding:

  • For those prone to teeth grinding, a night guard acts as a shield, protecting both natural teeth and implants from undue pressure.

Embrace a Wholesome Lifestyle:

  • Maintain good oral health through a well-rounded diet rich in essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Kick habits like nail-biting and chewing on hard objects, this will protect your implants from wear and tear.
  • Smoking is a nemesis to the success of dental implants, hindering the healing process and can contribute towards bone loss. Bid farewell to this habit to fortify the longevity of your implants.

Listen to Your Body:

  • Any lingering pain, swelling, or discomfort near your implants requires prompt communication with your dentist for swift resolution.
