Implant Clean


In most cases, a toothbrush, a special brush and an interdental cleaning device is sufficient to keep the implants clean. However it may sometimes be necessary to undergo a more intensive cleaning and remove bacteria. It is recommended that you have specialist dental implant cleaning twice a year. 

When a dentist cleans your dental implants, they will use special tools and techniques to remove plaque and calculus (hardened plaque) that you may not be able to reach at home. They may also use ultrasonic scalers to remove calculus that has formed below the gum line.

Here are some of the things that a dentist will do when cleaning your dental implants:

  • Inspect the implants for signs of infection or damage.
  • Remove plaque and calculus from the surface of the implants.
  • Polish the implants to remove any rough edges.
  • Check the fit of the implant crown.
  • Give you instructions on how to care for your implants at home.

Here are some additional tips for cleaning your dental implants at home:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. A hard-bristled toothbrush can damage the implant and the gum tissue around it.
  • Brush at a gentle angle. Don’t scrub your teeth too hard.
  • Brush for two minutes, twice a day. This is the amount of time it takes to remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth.
  • Floss daily. Flossing is important for removing plaque and food particles from between your teeth.
  • Use an oral irrigator. An oral irrigator can help to remove plaque and food particles from hard-to-reach places.
  • Visit your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. Your dentist can check your implants for signs of infection or damage.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your dental implants healthy and looking great for many years to come.
