knows that daily oral care and annual preventive examination are essential for effective long-term function of implant systems.
But many patients believe that as long as implants are made of titanium, and caries cannot develop in titanium, they needn’t take so much care of them as of their teeth.
Try to bring it home to the patient that the main danger is that bacterial flora can penetrate between the implant and the gum. That’s why the main task is to prevent its accumulation around the implant, so it is not as important what toothpaste you use as whether you brush your teeth daily and carefully.
The most effective means of dental implant care is an irrigator. Remember though that it is not used instead of a toothbrush but serves as a valuable addition!
