Hello Dear Readers,
Getting a new implant is a crucial step toward achieving a healthy smile. After undergoing implant procedures at our Nişantaşı and Şişli clinics in Istanbul, maintaining proper tooth brushing habits is essential. In this blog post, we’ll share tips and techniques for tooth brushing after implant procedures.
1. Pay Attention in the Early Days: Be Gentle and Slow
Right after the implant procedure, your gum tissues may be sensitive. Therefore, in the first few days, use a soft-bristle toothbrush from our Nişantaşı and Şişli clinics and brush your teeth and implant area gently and slowly.
2. Choose the Ideal Toothbrush: Opt for Soft Bristles
Avoid using a hard-bristle toothbrush when cleaning the implant area. We recommend soft-bristle toothbrushes from our Nişantaşı and Şişli clinics, which apply less pressure to your gums and implant area, ensuring a gentler cleaning process.
3. Pay Attention to the Gum Line
Brush your teeth paying attention to the gum line. Don’t forget to clean other teeth along with the implant area. Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums, moving it gently as if massaging.
4. Try Special Implant Brushes
After the implant procedure, trying specially designed implant brushes available at our Nişantaşı and Şişli clinics can be beneficial. These brushes can help you reach areas around the implant more effectively.
5. Don’t Neglect the Use of Dental Floss
After tooth brushing, don’t neglect the use of dental floss. Dental floss is an effective way to clean plaque and debris between teeth. Carefully floss around the implant area.
6. Don’t Forget Regular Check-ups
Lastly, don’t neglect regular dental check-ups after the implant procedure. Professional cleanings and recommendations from our Nişantaşı and Şişli clinics are essential for a healthy implant and smile.
Wishing you healthy smiles at our Nişantaşı and Şişli clinics in Istanbul!
