Here are some tips on how to take care of the newest addition to your smile.
It Depends on How Many Implants You Have
Taking care of a single implant does not involve any special care; you take care of it just as you would a natural tooth. Make sure that you brush and floss your teeth just as you normally would. If you have an implant-supported bridge, make sure that you take the time to use a floss threader in order to get in-between all of your teeth.
People who have overdentures may have a more complicated aftercare process. Special brushes and floss is necessary in order to clean the implant attachments as well as the overdenture.
Dental Hygiene Appointments After the All-on-4
In addition to your at-home care routine, you will visit EON Clinics twice a year for a professional hygiene appointment. At these appointments, we will check and clean your implant abutments, and clean and polish your prosthetic teeth. These visits, combined with proper home care, are essential to the long term success of implant treatment.
