Care of Dental Implants: Essential Tips from Dental Asensio

Having dental implants is an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth, but like your natural teeth, they also require proper care. Dr Lucia Asensio and her team at Dental Asensio share several essential tips to care for your dental implants effectively.

Regular Brushing: An Essential Part of Dental Implant Care

Regardless of whether you have dental implants or natural teeth, brushing after every meal is of utmost importance. On our blog, we provide a detailed guide on the correct brushing techniques and the types of toothbrushes recommended for various dental conditions. Dental implants should be cleaned using an interdental brush three times a day, coupled with dental floss, to eliminate bacterial plaque and prevent gum inflammation.

The Role of Developer Pills in Dental Hygiene

Keeping your mouth thoroughly clean is crucial for the longevity of your dental implants. Developer pills, which can be easily obtained from pharmacies, can assist in this regard. These erythrosine tablets (used for food colouring) help stain areas where bacterial plaque is present, making it easier to ensure you’re effectively removing plaque during your oral hygiene routine.

Adopting Healthy Habits for Implant Longevity

There are certain lifestyle habits that can contribute to the health of your mouth and the durability of your dental implants. One of the key habits to adopt is avoiding tobacco consumption. In addition to staining implant crowns, tobacco use can impair the implant’s integration with the bone.

The Importance of Regular Dental Checkups

Finally, routine dental checkups should not be overlooked. Our team at Dental Asensio is committed to helping you maintain a beautiful smile and healthy teeth, constantly innovating and offering the latest techniques in all dental specialities for the most advanced dentistry.

How to wash your teeth correctly

Did you know that adequate tooth brushing can significantly boost your oral health?

Most people aren’t entirely aware of the importance of proper tooth brushing and may not give it the attention it deserves. This simple yet essential activity plays a critical role in maintaining oral health. Specialists estimate that over 70% of the population mechanically brushes their teeth without fully understanding the benefits it offers.

To achieve effective tooth brushing, it’s crucial to follow these steps:

Exterior Tooth Surface:

Place the brush horizontally and perform vertical movements, from the gum line to the tip, for both the lower and upper teeth.

Interior Tooth Surface:

Place the brush horizontally and sweep from the gum line outwards. Pay careful attention to bacterial plaque. Brush teeth and molars using circular movements. Bacteria also accumulate on the tongue, so it is important not to overlook it and brush it too. Some toothbrushes come equipped with a tongue cleaner on the reverse side.

Additionally, here are some recommendations for maintaining proper oral hygiene:

  • Consider using toothbrushes with soft nylon bristles to avoid damaging your tooth enamel.
  • Change your toothbrush every 3 months.
  • Regularly use toothpaste, mouthwash, and dental floss.
  • Brush for 2-3 minutes each time.
  • Consult with your dentist or hygienist to determine the best toothpaste for your needs.

Everyone’s mouth is unique, with varying degrees of sensitivity. Therefore, it’s necessary to find a toothbrush that best suits our needs to avoid harming our mouth and to enhance our oral health:

Hard Bristle Toothbrush:

These have stronger and more rigid bristles. Recommended for individuals with healthy, robust, and well-cared-for teeth, as they can withstand the firmness of the brush. Be mindful not to apply excessive force while brushing as it could damage the enamel.

Medium Bristle Toothbrush:

Ideal for individuals with good oral health but who may find hard bristles uncomfortable.

Soft Bristle Toothbrush:

Recommended for individuals with sensitive teeth or those who have recently undergone dental surgery. Hard and medium bristle toothbrushes could potentially harm the enamel and gums.

Understanding these factors, we can choose a toothbrush that suits our sensitivity and specific needs:

Conventional Toothbrush:

This is the commonly used toothbrush featuring 3 to 4 rows of synthetic fibre bristles.

Periodontal (Sulcular or Crevicular) Toothbrush:

Composed of two strips of bristles. It’s used in cases of gum inflammation and recommended for children with fixed orthodontics.

Electric Toothbrush:

Electric toothbrushes offer various movements such as alternating, oscillating, or vertical vibrating. Its effectiveness matches that of a conventional brush.

Interproximal Toothbrush:

Ideal for individuals who have larger spaces between their teeth.
