Dental implants are designed to function like your natural teeth, which means you still need to maintain a thorough cleaning routine each day. Without proper hygiene, peri-implantitis can occur, which can lead to inflammation and bone loss. Even though implants won’t decay like your natural tissue would, plaque and bacteria can build up and spread to other areas. This buildup can cause gingivitis, which could eventually progress to periodontitis.
Because implants, bridges and crowns are slightly different from natural teeth, you might need to make some adjustments to your daily cleaning routine to ensure you effectively reach the margins of your crowns and around the bridges.
To help keep your teeth healthy, clean and looking their best, you can incorporate a dental implant cleaner as part of your cleaning routine. At EverSmile, we recommend the OmniFoam™ cleaner. This cleaner:
- Fights peri-implantitis
- Removes biofilm and buildup in margins and around gums
- Kills 99.999% of bacteria that cause tooth decay
