Caring For Dental Implants Properly Is Vital

Just like taking care of your natural teeth is vital, caring for dental implants is crucial too.

Dental experts are warning people who have false teeth and implants, about the dangers of neglecting dental hygiene.

With proper aftercare implanted dentures can last, although problems can arise which will shorten the life of those teeth.

A consultant at King’s College Hospital, who works in the field of restorative dentistry, has written about the problems of patients who don’t take adequate care of their new implanted teeth.

The majority of cases are successful as long as patients are told how to care for their new teeth.

Every year thousands of men and women opt for having dental implants rather than dentures. Whilst many of them having been given detailed information regarding caring for their new teeth, some quickly forget the advice and this allows problems to quickly escalate.

Ignoring swollen or bleeding gums is a major problem, which if left untreated can result in gum disease and more serious dental problems.

A problem which is now being seen by many dentists is known as peri-implantitis. The condition involves the loss of bone around the dental implant along with inflammation of the gums, i.e. gingivitis.

Taking proper care of your teeth is vital, regardless of whether they are your own, or are false teeth of some type.
