What are the care of a Dental Implant?

The Success of a Dental Implant depends on the care taken after its placement. In this article we provide you with some recommendations so that this Dental Implant can be a permanent and definitive solution for the total or partial loss of teeth. 

The following tips that we present are general. Depending on your particular case, the specialist will give you complementary guidelines.

In the postoperative

Dental Implant surgery has evolved over the years and nowadays it does not generate as much discomfort as before. However, there may be bleeding and pain after surgery and, if proper care is not taken, the Dental Implant can be a failure.

Here are some recommendations to take into account during the postoperative period:

  • Ice placement the first 24 hours.
  • Take antibiotics and pain relievers, at the discretion of the professional.
  • You can use natural products such as Bucoplack mouthwash 2-3 times a day, depending on your criteria (ask us how to get it).
  • Brush your teeth at least three times a day.
  • In the first month do not floss.
  • Light or moderate diet for the next 8 weeks after the procedure.
  • To avoid the use of tobacco.
  • Avoid hard and sticky foods.
  • Avoid high impact sports.

After postoperative

Dental Implants have a success rate of more than 90% when they are cared for correctly and consistently.. They require the same care as natural teeth and can suffer serious damage that causes the loss of the implant without proper care, among which are:

Perform proper oral hygiene

Oral hygiene needs to be done correctly several times a day, especially after meals to avoid the accumulation of bacterial plaque. This hygiene must be more rigorous than before having implants.

The use of dental floss, mouthwash and even a waterpik (or oral irrigator) can be used to complement hygiene.

Regular checks with the specialist

It is necessary to have periodic controls with the specialist so that you can check the status of the implant and perform professional oral hygiene to maintain overall oral health and dental implant health.
