Tips on searching for implants:
implants are made from synthetic materials, so they are not affected by tooth decay. However, gum health is important for long-term implant success. Good mouth health care and regular check-ups are important for maintaining your gum health after a dental implant.
Plaque and bacteria that form around an implant can cause swelling and lead to peri-implant disease, such as peri-implant mucositis (similar to gingivitis) and peri-implantitis (similar to periodontitis). Daily cleaning of all the surfaces above and below the gumline is critical to preventing peri-implant disease.
