Although the success rate of dental implants is very high, you should carry out some steps to protect them and make your implants long-lasting. PhD. Dr Tran Hung Lam – Elite Dental Specialist in Prosthodontics & Implants – would like to share his experience of how to take care of your implants after the surgery for excellent result.
- Maintain your oral hygiene – you should, as usual, brush twice a day and floss at least once a day. If possible, interdental brushes should be used to clean between the teeth and the surrounding area of your implant.
- Quit smoking – to benefit not only your implant but also your general health.
- Get a check-up from your dentistevery six months – get a cleaning and examination, which can help to maintain your implants always in good condition.
- Do not chew on very hard or crunchy foods– such as ice, hard candies or ribs, which causes a heightened risk of cracked prosthesis or natural teeth.
Protect your implants for the future
Your oral hygiene is the principal key for durable implants as well as the prosthesis on implants.
