Good oral hygiene is critical in caring for your implant. It takes special effort to maximize plaque bacteria removal every day.
Tooth implants have been used successfully for many years. Your implant should last for a very long time if you take the following points to heart.
Immediately following surgical placement of the implant, the wound is often sensitive, so you may not be able to use a toothbrush in that part of your mouth.
It's important that you maximize plaque removal every day through effective tooth brushing and flossing. You must thoroughly clean around both teeth and implants.
