Your gums are the foundation for your teeth and implants.
Imagine a tree that is planted in the earth. Without the earth surrounding the roots to support them, the tree would eventually fall. Gums act
similarly as the support structure for your teeth and, with correct care at home and regular visits to your dentist, healthy gums can help you retain
your teeth and implants for life.
Caring for your dental implants is very similar to caring for your own teeth. Brushing twice a day with a soft toothbrush and flossing daily, together with regular professional hygiene visits that match the maintenance of your natural teeth, are the key to implant longevity.
Just as your natural teeth, if not cared for adequately, can develop periodontitis (gum and bone recession), neglected dental implants can develop peri-implantitis which can cause soft tissue and bone loss. In some cases this can lead to the loss of your implants.
