Prevent Peri-implantitis and Other Dental Implants Problems


Some people considering the benefits of dental implants are worried about rejection. There are instances of dental implant failure. Lack of care after having dental implants put in can lead to peri-implantitis, an infection that could lead to loss of your dental implant. You’ve invested time, money, and effort in restoring your smile so good oral health regimen and regular check-ups are essential. In addition to healthy teeth, you need healthy gums, too. Our Bellaire dental office uses different cleaning equipment to clean dental implants at your twice yearly check-up and your ongoing care and attention to flossing, brushing, gum health, avoiding excessive sweets, and avoiding tobacco smoke will all help you keep your mouth healthy and will optimize the lifespan of your dental implants.
