Taking proper care of the implant is very important in maintaining good oral health and to ensure success and longevity of implant. In many ways, caring for dental implant is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Implant restoration is composed of three parts- implant, connecting abutment and implant supported crown. It is critical when cleaning that these parts will not be damaged. Be sure to brush your dental implant at and below the gum line similar to natural tooth. It is also important to use floss or interdental brush in between neighboring teeth. Regular cleaning of the implant will help prevent plaque buildup that can cause inflammation of the gums which can lead to implant related gum disease which can potentially result in loss of the implant if left untreated.
