Dental implants are a breakthrough in replacing missing teeth, closely resembling the function and appearance of natural teeth. At Grupo de Odontología de Sacramento, located at 1105 E St, Sacramento, CA 95814, our dentists, Dr. Marjoorie Castro and Dr. Samuel Karavan, emphasize the importance of maintaining proper oral hygiene for dental implants. This guide provides essential care tips to ensure the longevity and health of your dental implants.
Brushing: Utilize a soft-bristled brush to gently clean around implants twice daily. Consider an interdental brush or implant-specific brush for thorough cleaning.
Flossing: Daily flossing with unwaxed tape or implant-specific floss is essential to remove plaque and debris from around the implant.
Non-abrasive Toothpaste: Choose a gentle toothpaste to prevent scratching the implant surface. Avoid abrasive ingredients.
Scheduling regular check-ups and cleanings at Grupo de Odontología de Sacramento is vital. Our team, including Dra. Marjoorie Castro y Dr. Samuel Karavan, ensures that your implants and overall oral health are in top condition.
Quit Smoking: Smoking can negatively impact the healing and longevity of implants. For help, visit SmokeFree.gov.
Limit Staining Foods and Beverages: Reduce intake of coffee, tea, red wine, etc., to prevent discoloration of implant crowns.
Avoid Hard and Sticky Foods: Protect your implants and natural teeth by avoiding foods that may cause damage.
Incorporate a gentle, alcohol-free mouthwash into your routine to reduce harmful bacteria and maintain gum health.
