Are You Looking For A Complete Guide To Implant Cleaning in Chandler?

 

How do I clean my dental implant bridge?

When seeing dental patients in Chandler we get a lot of questions about how to clean implants. Dental implant bridges include one or two dental implant posts attached at the jawbone, and a bridge made of prosthetic teeth, or pontics, that extends over the gums in between. Since the artificial teeth are not connected to the jawbone, food particles can become trapped between the dental restoration and the gums. Flossing or using a special toothbrush to clean between the dental bridge and the gums is vital for preventing plaque buildup and gum disease.

How do I care for my implant dentures?

Unlike traditional dentures, implant dentures may not need to be removed for nightly cleanings. Instead, your Chandler implant dentist, Dr. Arooni, may recommend specific techniques and products for optimal implant denture cleaning. For instance, like cleaning implant bridges, inter dental brushing or special flossing methods are necessary for cleaning between your hybrid dentures and gums.

Should I brush my dental implant?

Although dental implants do not have the same anatomical composition of a tooth, they still require maintenance to keep them healthy and strong. Dental implants should be kept clean with daily brushing and flossing. You can care for your dental implants as you would your natural teeth.

Why are dental cleanings important?

With regular dental cleanings, Dr. Arooni will help you maintain healthy implants. Gum disease and other complications can cause implant dentures to fail or lose strength. In fact, periodontal disease, or gum disease, is the main cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. Gum disease can threaten your dental implants by infecting connective tissues.

At a dental cleaning, Dr. Arooni can ensure the success of your dental restorations with diagnostic X-rays and gum disease prevention. In addition, our Chandler dentist can check up on your daily oral hygiene routine and offer advice for efficient at-home maintenance methods.

Special techniques for implant denture care

You will not need to remove your implant dentures nightly for cleaning. Inter-dental brushing or specific flossing methods keep the spaces between your implant denture and gums clean.

Care for your dental implant or implant supported dental appliance as you would your natural teeth. Proper maintenance helps assure the health and appearance of your adjoining teeth.
