Hygiene & Care For Dental Implants

Patients often ask me, “When I have a whole new mouth of dental implants, how do I take care of them?” Fortunately, it’s very easy. I tell all my patients with a full mouth of dental implants that all you need to do is use a water flosser, like a Waterpik, for example, though many other brands are fine as well. Clean around your gums, and then with a soft-bristle toothbrush, gently brush around your gums.

The key is to keep your gums healthy and free of debris from eating throughout the day. If you can do that, your gums will stay healthy, your implants will stay healthy, and you will get to keep them for your lifetime.

Another crucially important aspect is finding the right provider. It’s not just about their expertise, but also about connecting with them. You need to find someone who listens to your needs and provides a custom solution that meets those needs exactly. During your consultation, make sure you speak with the doctor, not just a team member. You need to connect with the doctor and feel comfortable with them.

In summary, it is very important to find a skilled provider, but it’s equally important to find someone who understands your needs and cares tremendously about delivering the care you need, desire, and deserve.

Taking Care of Your New Dental Implants: A Guide by Dr. Ben Hanson

If you’ve recently received a new set of dental implants, congratulations on taking a significant step towards a healthier, more beautiful smile! As Dr. Ben Hanson from Brownstown Dental Care in Brownstown, MI, often tells his patients, caring for your dental implants is straightforward and can ensure they last a lifetime. In this blog post, we will discuss the essentials of maintaining your new dental implants and what to look for in a dental provider to ensure you receive the best care possible.

Essential Care for Your Dental Implants

Dental implants require similar care to natural teeth, but with a few specific practices to ensure they remain in top condition:

  1. Use a Water Flosser: One of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your dental implants clean is by using a water flosser. Devices like the Waterpik are excellent for cleaning around your gums and removing food debris that can lead to plaque buildup. The gentle yet effective stream of water helps to maintain gum health without causing any damage to your implants.
  2. Brush with a Soft-Bristle Toothbrush: Gentle brushing is key when it comes to caring for your implants. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush to brush around your gums and the implant area. This helps to remove plaque and food particles without irritating your gums. Aim to brush at least twice a day, making sure to cover all surfaces of your teeth and implants.
  3. Maintain Healthy Gums: The health of your gums is crucial for the longevity of your dental implants. Healthy gums help to support the implants and prevent infections. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups play a significant role in keeping your gums in optimal condition.

Choosing the Right Dental Provider

Selecting the right dental provider is just as important as caring for your implants. Here are some tips to help you find a dentist who meets your needs:

  1. Expertise and Skill: Look for a dentist with extensive experience and expertise in dental implants. A skilled provider will ensure your implants are placed correctly and provide you with the best possible outcome.
  2. Personal Connection: It’s important to connect with your dentist on a personal level. During your consultation, ensure you meet with the dentist directly, not just a team member. This interaction allows you to gauge whether the dentist listens to your needs and is willing to customize a treatment plan that suits you.
  3. Comfort and Communication: Feeling comfortable with your dentist is crucial. You should feel free to express your concerns and expectations. A good dentist will take the time to understand your needs and provide the care you desire and deserve.
