Care of dental implants

Dr. Lucia Asensio’s team gives you several tips to take care of dental implants. 

We must keep in mind that brushing after every meal is very important. In one of our blogs we explain how you have to do it and what types of toothbrushes are recommended for each mouth. Both teeth and implants must be brushed with an interdental brush 3 times a day and use dental floss to remove bacterial plaque and prevent gums from becoming inflamed.

It is important to keep a completely clean mouth, for this there are some developer pills that can be obtained in pharmacies. They are erythrosine tablets (pigment used as food coloring). They are helpful for staining areas where there is bacterial plaque.

There are also a series of healthy habits that we must comply with in order to maintain a healthy mouth, such as avoiding tobacco consumption, since in addition to staining the implant crowns it can affect the integration of the implant into the bone.

In addition, we cannot forget to go for periodically check up´s to your dentist, that´s why oour team of dentists is committed to having a beautiful smile and healthy teeth, innovating and offering you the latest techniques in all dental specialties so you can enjoy Advanced Dentistry.

Wash your teeth correctly

¿Did you know that with good tooth brushing you could improve your oral health?

 We are not fully aware of what it can mean to brush your teeth correctly and we may not pay full attention, but it has more than we think. Specialists report that more than 70% of the population performs their oral washing mechanically without being aware of what this entails.

Out of mouth

Place the brush horizontally and perform vertical movements, from top to bottom, on both the lower and upper teeth

Inside the mouth

Place the brush horizontally and brush from the gum sweeps out. Pay maximum attention to bacterial plaque. Brush teeth and molars with circular movements. The Bacterias accumulate on the tongue. It is important not to overlook it and also brush it. Some brushes have a tongue cleaner on the outside

Other recommendations 

  1. May involve  use of toothbrushes with soft nylon cells to avoid damaging your tooth enamel.
  2. Change your brush every 3 months.
  3. Use toothpaste, mouthwash and floss.
  4. Perform brushing between 2-3 minutes.
  5. Ask your dentist or hygienist which toothpaste suits your needs.

Each mouth is different, there are more sensitive and others less. Therefore, it is necessary to know what type of brush suits better our needs to avoid damaging our mouth and help improve our oral health (all brushes are made of synthetic fiber bristles):

 

  • Hard brush

The bristles are stronger and more rigid. Recommended for healthy, strong and well maintained mouths, since they are not so sensitive and the hardness of the brush could not affect your teeth. We must take into account not to exercise a lot of force while brushing as we could damage the enamel.

  • Medium hard 

Medium Recommended for mouths with good oral health. Although this type of mouth could not stand the hard bristles.

  • Soft

Recommended for mouths that are more sensitive or have had dental surgery. Hard and medium brushes could damage the enamel and cause damage to the gums when brushing.

Knowing how to brush, we can select the type of toothbrush that meets our needs according to the sensitivity of our mouth. We can find the following:

  • Conventional

It is the commonly used toothbrush formed from 3 to 4 rows of synthetic fiber bristles.

 

  • Periodontal (sulcular or crevicular)

Composed of two strips of bristles. It is used in cases of gingival inflammation and is recommended in children with fixed orthodontics

 

  • Electric

The electric brush has 3 types of horizontal movement: alternating, arched or vibrating vertical. Its effectiveness is the same as a conventional brush

 

  • Interproximals

Recommended for people who have more space between tooth and tooth.
