To make sure your dental implants last as long as possible, taking care of them properly is essential. Luckily, dental implant hygiene is easy and doesn’t require you to do anything other than brushing and flossing your teeth. Treat your implant as if it’s a natural tooth.
We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush, non-abrasive toothpaste, and gentle floss for your dental implants. These materials are less likely to scratch the surface of your new tooth and help it to last longer.

While daily care is simple, proper surgery aftercare is essential to a successful dental implant. To ensure there aren’t complications with your implant, follow the aftercare guidelines carefully. Avoid using a straw, be gentle when spitting, and eat soft foods until you’ve healed.
