Dental implants are a great way to improve your smile and overall oral health. It is a great success in the dental world not only because of its long-lasting durability but also its great look. Unfortunately, although the success rate for dental implants is around 97 to 98%, there are still rare cases when things go south for some patients. To avoid the rare possibility of implant failure, follow the five given rules!
It is always recommended to keep your overall body and mind fit all the time. A robust body can help in avoiding implant failures in your mouth. Consider having a careful check-up of your whole body before going for a dental implant. If you have certain diseases or consume prescribed medications, remember to check it up with your dentist beforehand to steer clear of any casualties in the future.
Smoking is, anyway, a bad habit for your body even if you do not need implants. Moreover, several published scientific pieces show that smoking causes dental hazards. Hence, there is no doubt that it will not harm your dental implant. Therefore, cease your smoking habit if you want a healthy mouth and body.
Your eating habits and diet have a direct connection to your oral health. How well you manage your teeth and how much care you take of your mouth will reflect on how long the implant will stay in your mouth. Although dental implants mimic the usage of your natural teeth, it is imperative to avoid eating food that can damage them.
Practicing good oral hygiene regularly is necessary even if you do not get an oral implant. Remember to brush your teeth twice daily, and do not forget to floss with an alcohol-free antibacterial mouthwash after every meal. Make this a daily routine to avoid any damage to your dental implants.
The material you use to make dental implants also matters a lot. If the surface of your implant is rough, it may also cause a failure pattern. With time, various surface modifications have been made to ensure good results. With improved osseointegration, scientists have been able to reduce implant failures.
