How to Avoid Peri-Implantitis

How to Avoid Peri-Implantitis

Peri-implantitis results from the bacterial buildup around soft and hard gum tissues surrounding a dental implant. Moreover, this condition causes gum inflammation that wreaks havoc on the bone that supports the implant. If left untreated, peri-implantitis can cause implant failure.

We’re here to help you steer clear of peri-implantitis. 3D model of peri-implantitis after ceramic implants in palm beach gardens

Tips for Preventing Peri-Implantitis

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Practicing a solid oral hygiene routine significantly reduces your risk of peri-implantitis. Keep your natural teeth and dental implants clean by brushing them with fluoridated toothpaste at least twice a day and flossing once daily. Rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash gives added benefits. However, you’ll want to use alcohol-free mouthwash to avoid various health problems alcohol may cause. It’s also best to chew sugar-free gum because it contributes to proper oral hygiene by reducing plaque, maintaining oral tissue health and tonicity, and promoting bone health.

Quit Smoking Cigarettes

Smoking cigarettes can have a detrimental effect on your gums. Tobacco’s sugars and irritants can irritate the gum tissue that holds the dental implants in place, leading to gum disease. Since smoking triggers a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream, the infected gums don’t heal. In addition, smoking harms the body’s immune system, further increasing the risk of experiencing oral health concerns. Unless you quit smoking, you’re twice as likely to develop gum problems than nonsmokers.

Schedule Regular Dental Appointments

Dental professionals recommend keeping up with your biannual dental visits, especially if you have dental implants. Your dentist will check your mouth and eliminate plaque and tartar through professional cleanings. Besides allowing your dentist to recommend preventive measures against peri-implantitis, regular dental appointments can allow them to catch issues early and treat them promptly.  woman getting ceramic implants with periodontist in palm beach gardens
