Maintenance

Dental implants, once restored and in function mimic natural teeth. Like natural teeth, dental implants also require maintenance, both through good personal oral hygiene by the patient and professional dental cleanings by a dentist or hygienist.

Because dental implants are made out of titanium, they require special instruments to avoid damaging their surface during cleaning. Traditional instruments made out of steel are thus not ideal and are replaced with the titanium or plastic varieties.
