How To Prevent Dental Implant Failure?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root inserted into the jaw to support a bridge or prosthetic tooth. Dental implant is a possibility for people who have lost one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, an accident etc.
Tips to prevent dental implant failure:
1. Be an ideal candidate
The ideal applicant should have appropriate bone tissue, healthy gums, and a generally good state of health.
2. Stop smoking
Smoking increases the risk of losing a dental implant. Additionally, gum disease brought on by smoking can be a risk factor for dental implants to fail at any stage.
Peri-implantitis, one of the more frequent reasons of implant failure, develops when the bone and gum tissue around the implant become inflamed. Make sure to consult an expert for dental implant procedures.
4. Oral hygiene
Maintain a regular oral hygiene to keep dental implants healthy. Use an alcohol-free antibacterial mouthwash in addition to brushing and flossing the teeth twice a day.
5. Eat healthy
Eat less of the foods that can overstress the implant. Stay away from hard sweets, difficult baked products like pretzels, and overly-sugary meals that can complicate your dental implant by promoting bacterial growth.
Dental implants require diligent at-home oral care and routine dental appointments, just like natural teeth, to maintain function and ward off peri-implant disease. Brushing and flossing are still required to maintain the cleanliness and plaque-free condition of an implant.
