When coming for a dental vacation in Cancun to have All on 4 dental implants procedure, many patients ask us if their cleaning routine will be much different or difficult with their new screw retained teeth.
Caring for your new All on 4 dental implants is like caring for your natural teeth: Brush and floss daily, use waterpik and maintain regular cleanings and check up with your dentist in Cancun, the patient and doctor must work as a team to ensure longevity of their new All on 4 dental implants!
Remember that also, cleaning around the dental implants to keep healthy the surrounding tissue for support, remember that plaque collects on dental implants just as it does on natural teeth and it must be removed on daily basis. Without the proper cleaning infection can develop known as peri-implantitis. Unlike inflammation around teeth, peri-implantitis can result in bone loss around the dental implants.
An effective way to clean your dental implants, is using a waterpik.
Waterpik is a water flosser, simple and easy to use and highly effective. Is a small hand-held counter unit filled with water. Water pulses out off a specialized tip that you trace around your gum line and dental implants.
Despite all this special cleaning, dental implants are highly successful, studies that indicate long term success rates over 95%, however the prevention of peri-implantitis and infections around the tissue is fundamental to dental implant health maintenance and function.
