Dental implants from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ have an impressive success rate: greater than ninety percent, in the majority of cases. Maintenance is an essential part of their success, both at home and when you come in for a checkup.
Dental hygienists play an important role in the success of an implant, so be sure you tell us you’ve got one when you come in for a checkup. We’ll have it in your records, of course, but we don’t like to leave anything to chance.
During your cleaning, the hygienist may only need to remove any plaque that has built up on the replacement tooth. The artificial tooth is just as susceptible to plaque as natural teeth.
We’ll also review your home cleaning technique. Remember, caring for your dental implant is criticial to its success. It’s especially important to clean between the artificial tooth and neighboring teeth.
Newer studies are indicating that interdental brushes are better than dental floss for this purpose. Interdental brushes are slender picks usually made of plastic, and covered with tiny bristles. This in-between cleaning is important for keeping gum disease at bay.
