How often the procedure should be performed?
The optimum level for professional oral hygiene is twice a year, every 6 month. If you have not followed the dental hygiene for a long time, more procedures may be needed.
Do I need dental hygiene if I have dental implants?
You need to care after dental implants in the same way as your own teeth. Unattended teeth can have irreversible consequences. One of the most common problems is peri-implantitis.
Peri-implant mucositis is the medical name for inflammation (redness and swelling) around the gums of the implant tooth – this is caused by bacteria that build up in the mouth. If the plaque isn’t removed and continues to break down, this is called peri-implantitis and your implant may be at risk of coming loose.
If you have an implant and you’re unsure of how to clean parts of the tooth, ask your dentist or hygienist for guidance. There are lots of designs of implants, and sometimes it can be helpful to see a radiograph of the implant to find out where the ‘gaps’ are and where bacteria may build up.
