The Importance of Dental Hygiene with Dental Implants

Posted By nextsmiles nextsmiles     November 24, 2021    


Dental implants are not as demanding as dentures and other tooth loss solutions, but that doesn't mean you shouldn’t care for them. Just like your natural teeth, you have to take care of them and brush and floss them regularly. Here is why oral hygiene is essential when you have dental implants:

Success rate

Poor oral hygiene increases the risk of dental implant failure because it can cause all types of infections. If you want a successful implant, ensure you maintain good oral hygiene.


Gum infection

Dental implants may not be susceptible to disease and cavities like your natural teeth. However, the gum that supports them is as well as the surrounding teeth and bones. If the gum becomes infected due to poor oral hygiene, the implant's crown might not ache, but the gum will be painful. Gum infection can also result in bone loss.



Failure to clean your teeth will result in plaque buildup. Plaque is filled with bacteria that will cause damage to the gum or surrounding teeth. Therefore, it is essential to remove the plaque to protect your gums and natural teeth.


Poor oral hygiene might not cause a cavity on your dental implant, but it will surely cause pain and other oral hygiene problems. Hence you should take care of your implants just like your natural teeth.


How to Clean Your Dental Implants

Clean your teeth after every meal or at least twice a day for two minutes
Floss once a day before you go to bed
If you notice an infection, see your dentist
