For good prosthodontic hygiene and a long durability of dental implants, careful oral hygiene is essential. In this way, we will be able to prevent possible tissue alterations that could even cause the dental implant to fail.
There are various devices and utensils that can help us to carry out a correct hygiene of our implant-supported dental prosthesis at home.
Manual toothbrushes specifically for implant-supported prostheses
These brushes have a special grip and angles to make cleaning more accessible.
Dental irrigators reach with their pressurised water the most inaccessible points for those fixed prostheses or those that are difficult to clean manually.
These flossers are specifically for people who have lost gum volume and therefore food debris remains lodged in the interproximal areas.
Interproximal brushes perform a similar function to the special dental floss for dentures on implants, although they are more focused on people with a large loss of gum volume and who therefore have larger visible black spaces between the teeth.
In addition, it is very important to go every 4-6 months to the revisions with your dental professional to check and ensure that our dental prosthesis remains correctly sanitised and stable over time.
