CARE OF IMPLANTS

The main reason that implants fail is that they are not cleaned well enough. Either they are not fitted so that you cannot clean them well enough. Or that no-one has taught you how to look after them properly. Or just not bothering to clean them well enough. Implants are fitted straight into the bone, they have no protective ligaments like the teeth so destruction of the supporting bone and gum disease will happen at a faster rate than with normal teeth.
Cleaning techniques for implants include the lasso technique with special floss, interdental brushes, electric toothbrushes and water jets. It is necessary to remove as much plaque as possible from the necks of the implants and there threads to prevent peri-implantitis – this is the name for gum disease of implants and it takes time and effort to prevent it happening.
