How do I keep my dental implants clean?

Title: Keeping Your Dental Implants Sparkling Clean: A Guide

At Brush Up Dental, your smile’s longevity is our priority. Dental implants are a fantastic solution for restoring that natural, confident smile, and they’re meant to last. However, like your natural teeth, they require a bit of TLC to stay in tip-top shape. Dr. Jason T. Lipscomb DDS is here to guide you on how to keep them sparkling clean!

Understanding Your Dental Implants:

Your dental implants are sturdy, but they’re not invincible. They consist of three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the crown. The crown is the visible part that resembles a natural tooth, and it’s the part that will require regular cleaning to prevent plaque buildup and ensure the longevity of your implant.

Cleaning Your Dental Implants:

It’s not rocket science, but there’s a knack to it. Regular brushing and flossing are your best friends when it comes to maintaining your dental implants. Here’s a step-by-step guide from Dr. Lipscomb:

  1. Brushing: Use a soft-bristle toothbrush to gently clean around the implant crown and surrounding gums. An electric toothbrush with a round head is also a great choice for a thorough clean.
  2. Flossing: Dental tape or implant-specific floss is your go-to here. Gently floss around the implant to remove any lingering food particles and plaque.
  3. Mouthwash: An antimicrobial mouthwash can help to keep harmful bacteria at bay, promoting a healthy environment for your implant.
