For good outcomes and effective recovery, you must practice sound oral hygiene practices before, during and after you get dental implants. Here at GB Dental Hospital, we specialize in dental implants in Ipswich and train our patients about how to take care of them appropriately. There are opportunities for plaque build-up in the dental implant, leading to bleeding gums, gum disease, bone loss, infection and other dental complications that may obstruct the process of healing if sufficient care is not taken.
At GB Dental we have comprehensive post-op instructions for all our patients to look after their implants. This can be very useful aftercare tips to ensure your fresh smile stays safe and beautiful for years to come.
We suggest the use of soft brush particularly designed for patients with dental implants in Ipswich and clean areas that are difficult to reach. Ensure the bristles are smooth, so they can clean the implant’s surface smoothly. It is best to brush for 2 to 3 minutes to clean any plaque that may have developed.
Flossing your teeth will clear any residual plaque or plaque that is trapped inside your teeth. So, it’s advised that you floss at least once a day so that no bits of food or plaque will create problems of all kinds. Make sure you gently floss and there’s no harm to the tooth, implant or gum.
Avoid Rough or Sticky foods:
Consuming rough foods can result in damage to the implants, or possibly even opposing teeth. Stop eating hard and sticky foods because they can weaken the strength of your dental implants. Any products such as cookies, ice cream, hard dressing, dried fruit, etc.
Avoid smoking and alcohol:
Smoking can be very dangerous to dental implant safety, particularly during the first 6 months of recovery but even after complete implant integration. Smoking decreased our gums and teeth and bone blood supply and this can be very harmful to dental implants. Drinking alcohol has also proven to slow down the dental implant healing process.
Visit your dentists regularly:
We advise you to visit your doctor regularly, at GB Dental, at least two times a year, based on your overall oral health. Your daily visit will assist the dentist in preserving dental implant health and proper oral health. We want the dental implants to last a lifespan and we assume they will do so with proper treatment. If you have any concerns about the long-term care of your dental implants please contact us.
We are proud to look after all patients regardless of age. Our aim is to provide dental treatment of high quality. This is particularly good for kids and we are trying to encourage younger patients to establish healthier behaviours later in life and to minimize problems. Proper dental treatment is important to ensure that the implants last for as long as possible.
