Good oral hygiene must take place before, during, and after placement of dental implants to ensure the health of the implant. Just as well as for your natural teeth, you need to take care of the cleanness of implants.
Patients are concerned about what kind of maintenance their implants will require. Plaque and bacteria which are formed around the implants can cause an infection known as periimplantitis. Everyday cleaning of all surfaces above and under the line of gums is extremely important.
Without daily biofilm removal, the infection can develop known as peri-implantitis (“peri” – around; implant “itis” – inflammation), which can result in loss of the attachment described above.
Unlike inflammation around teeth, this reaction can be quite catastrophic both in rate and amount, quickly leading to a well – or dish-shaped loss of bone around an affected implant. Bone loss can rapidly progress to loss of the implant.
In the first two weeks of the procedure, we recommend products for professional maintenance of oral hygiene about which you will be thoroughly informed from the side of our specialist after the surgical procedure.
Maintaining oral surgery includes regular brushing in the morning and in the evening, the usage of dental floss and liquid for mouthwash. Next, to the everyday maintenance of oral hygiene, it is also needed to regularly go to examinations and make a professional removal of tooth floss and Plaque.
The dental hygienist has an important role to play in keeping dental implants infection-free, and there are many factors to be considered in selecting the right instruments for professional cleaning.
The implant success rate today is around 98%, which qualifies this type of intervention among the most successful in dentistry. The procedure of implant installation is made in the time interval of 15 minutes by the implant. The sole surgical procedure lasts short, and most importantly, is completely painless for the patient since it is done under local anaesthetics.
