Dental implants fit into your smile as naturally as your own teeth, and caring for them should be a part of your daily routine too.
Brush twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, preferably after every meal. Just like your real teeth, you should brush as much of dental implant crown as possible.
To properly floss, use floss with shred-resistant stiff ends and a pliable middle. When flossing, carefully clean in between and around each implant. Avoid standard string floss as it can shred and cause infection.
If you’ve been recommended mouthwash, or it’s already a part of your daily routine, use mouthwash for extra fresh and clean breath.
To remove any plaque or calculus build-up from implant surfaces, use a plaque-removing tool designed for gentle removal.
No matter the smile solution you’re enjoying, you should get it professionally cleaned every 3 to 6 months, depending on your oral health. At every visit, your Aspen Dental team will check the condition of your implant denture or fixed implants to ensure you’re healthy.
