Implants at Hello Dental, Colchester

Implants are the best replacement for natural teeth. Implants are strong and resistant to decay however the gum surrounding an implant is still susceptible to disease therefore they require similar care to natural teeth. Failure to look after an implant properly can result in failure and ultimately loss of the implant. If you notice any soreness, bleeding or if the implant begins to move you should speak to your dentist as soon as possible.

Below are some tips on how to care for your natural teeth and implant.

Brush twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste

Fluoride toothpaste is essential to prevent decay in the natural teeth, after brushing with fluoride toothpaste spit the toothpaste out but do not rinse the toothpaste away.

Clean between the implant and teeth

It is just as important to clean in between implants as it is to clean between natural teeth. You can use floss, interdental brushes or water/air flossers, your dental professional can advise you on the best product for you. Clean in between all your teeth once daily before toothbrushing to remove food particles and plaque from between the teeth.

Attend dental appointments regularly

To ensure the tissues around the implant remain healthy it is important to attend dental appointments as regularly as your dentist recommends. Regular visits to the Hygienist will also help to maintain a good oral hygiene routine.
