Dental implants have transformed restorative dentistry by providing a dependable and aesthetic replacement for lost teeth. Knowing how to properly care for your dental implants to preserve your oral health, regardless of whether you have just had a dental implant treatment done or are thinking about getting one soon, is essential. In this blog, we’ll look at important advice (Dental implant care tips) and standards for dental implant maintenance.

Follow proper oral hygiene practices:

To ensure dental implants endure long, you must always practice good oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste is the simplest and best practice. To prevent bacterial development and plaque buildup, ensure the area around the implants is well-cleansed.

Floss regularly:

Flossing is crucial in preventing gum disease and protecting dental implants. Use a floss threader or interdental brushes to clean the implant and the adjacent teeth. This removes any food particles or plaque that may accumulate in those areas, reducing the risk of infection.

Rinse with antibacterial mouthwash:

Incorporate an antibacterial mouthwash into your daily oral care routine. Swishing with an alcohol-free, antibacterial mouthwash helps eliminate harmful bacteria, reduces inflammation, and promotes healing. Consult with your dentist to choose an appropriate mouthwash for your specific needs.

Attend regular dental check-ups:

Routine dental visits are essential for the maintenance of dental implants. Schedule regular check-ups with your dentist, allowing them to monitor the health of your implants, assess the surrounding tissues, and address any potential concerns early on. Dental professionals have the expertise to detect and treat any issues that may arise.

Avoid smoking and limit alcohol consumption:

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can negatively impact dental implant health. These habits contribute to a higher risk of implant failure and complications. Quit smoking if you are a smoker and consume alcohol in moderation to safeguard the success of your dental implants.Standards for dental implant maintenance

Protect against teeth grinding:

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can exert excessive force on dental implants, leading to implant failure or damage. If you have a history of teeth grinding, discuss it with your dentist. They may recommend wearing a nightguard or other protective devices to prevent damage caused by grinding or clenching during sleep.

Maintain a balanced diet:

Proper nutrition plays a significant role in overall oral health. Consume a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients to support the health of your gums and bone structure. Adequate nutrition helps promote healing and strengthens the implant area.

The success of your dental implants over the long run and the general health of your mouth depends on proper maintenance. You may lengthen your dental implants’ useful life and effectiveness by leading a healthy lifestyle, seeing the dentist frequently, and practicing good oral hygiene.

The hygienist from Hawaii does such a great job cleaning teeth pain free. I went to Mexico and 2 crowns placed but she noted they left cement between my teeth that will cause breakdown/infection. She worked so hard to remove it but couldn’t get it all the dentist came in assessed the problem, says he sees this all the time but he can fix it, which is so great because I don’t want to undergo a root canal and another crown. He has placed prior crowns on my teeth and I have never had any issues. He did a great job 👏🏻 I highly recommend this office. I have went there for years. You won’t be disappointed. They will get you in quickly if your having a issue.Thank you Wilmot dental !!!

Dr. Lyman and his team are the best! The pano machine was down last week but they made sure to call me right away when it was fixed and scheduled me in the next week. Front desk is approachable, friendly and super nice. The wait times aren’t really long and that’s perfect! Thought I was only getting my X-rays today but they pulled through with pulling my wisdom teeth and reassured me everything was going to be ok. Recommend this dental for a family like feel. Definitely coming back again!

Kelsie did a great job on my cleaning today. Both her and Dr. Lyman addressed my concerns and answered my questions thoroughly. I've continued to be pleased with this practice.Precious Review 2 years ago: Today, I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle, the new hygienist. What a great addition to this practice. Michelle was gentle and had a lovely chair side manner. She did great, Thank- you Michelle!My previous reviewI was very pleased with my recent experience at Wilmot Family Dentistry. Both Becca and Dr. Lyman were caring and addressed my concerns well. Treatment was pain free. Becca, Alanna and Dr. Lyman were gentle and kind. I recommend this practice.

Doctor Lyman and his staff are incredible. Update: January 2024. Had my 6-month check up and as usual I had a professional lady who was truly a hygienic specialist par excellence. She did a thorough job of cleaning my teeth, and she was as nice as she could be. I can't imagine ever giving less than a five-star review for Wilmot Family Dentistry.
