Do You Still Have to Worry About Getting Gum Disease with Whole Mouth Implants?

Posted on 10/10/2019 by Todd Jorgenson
Do You Still Have to Worry About Getting Gum Disease with Whole Mouth Implants?There are a good number of people living with whole mouth implants. Dental implants are termed to be by far the most successful way of replacing missing teeth. The procedure involves using a small titanium screw-like post that acts as the new root for the tooth. After some healing time, it begins to attach to the tooth bone.

At this point, a crown that looks and fits like your natural tooth is fixed to complete the process. It is aesthetically important that you replace missing teeth. But these too have to be taken care in order to avoid oral diseases.

How Can One Get Gum Disease With Whole Mouth Implants?

Having mouth implants does not exclude you from the duties of brushing your teeth and flossing daily. If anything, you need to work extra hard at keeping your mouth clean to avoid further complications. When these cleaning procedures are neglected, there is always a real threat of suffering gum disease. When plaque forms around your implants, it is important to get rid of it. When left to gather over time, the buildup film brings inflammation to the gums and makes them bleed easily.

What Do I Need To Do To Ensure This Doesn't Happen?

You need to maintain proper oral health always. This means the normal brushing and flossing as well as getting professional cleaning of your entire mouth every 3 months. This will help deal with the evidence of bad breath and protect your gums from the danger of pulling away from the implants and introducing pus inside the spaces.

Mouth implants need to be taken care of if you are going to enjoy their maximum benefits throughout life. Visit our clinic today and get more information on how to maintain your smile and avoid getting gum disease.
