Look after your teeth implants!

It might be tempting to treat dental implants as a ‘fit-and-forget’ option for the problem of failing and missing teeth.  However, good oral hygiene and regular check-ups are essential to their long-term success.

According to an article on click4teeth, neglected teeth implants develop plaque and tartar, and can be susceptible to bacteria, which may result in gum disease.  If left untreated, this can lead to peri-implantitis, which can cause soreness, bleeding, discomfort and, eventually, bone loss around the implants, which could lead to them becoming loose.
