Implant Maintenance

Freedom Day

As the restriction ease on the 19th July 2021 our policy still remainsĀ that you always wear a face covering while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

NHS appointments are in very high demand and we may be unable to offer appointments for non urgent treatment and waiting times for NHS treatments may be several weeks.

  • Following the placement of an implant it is important to keep the surrounding area clean.
  • Use a 45 degree angle as the standard brushing technique.
  • Use plastic coated interdental brushes for safe effective plaque removal.
  • Tightly floss approximal surfaces and implants.
  • Ensure all surfaces are clean.
  • Adapt floss/tape for teeth and gums.

 

Implant Cleaning

  • If not kept clean, the gingivae around the implant can become inflammed.
  • Use extra soft filaments for the acutely affected area.
  • Using a standard brushing technique gently but effectively removes debris.
  • Interdental cleaning with the extra soft range removes plaque comfortably and effectively.
  • Use a standard interdental cleaning technique with extra soft filaments.
  • This will result in the resolution of inflamed site.
