Good oral hygiene around implants, crowns, veneers and bridges is just as important for your restoration as it is for your natural teeth. It is worth maintaining your investment you have come so far to proudly achieve. Having restored teeth may require you to change the way you brush, floss and maintain your oral health.
It is easy to manage when you know how. Your hygienist will help to monitor changes in your gums and the line that meets your restoration that keeps it looking natural and balanced in your smile.
If left untreated black triangles or gaps may form where your gum lines fills between your teeth or your gum may recede away from the crown of your restoration that can cause further bacteria traps that excel the break down in your oral health or cause unsightliness and pain.
The end result of unstable oral health may result in loss of the structure of your natural tooth that supports your veneer or crown.
It may also be part of your dental work warranty to maintain your annual check and hygiene appointments for early detection in changes to your oral health that might affect the longevity of your restoration.
Your hygienist will use specially adapted hygiene techniques to professionally maintain your restorations and provide you with the confidence to continue your best possible home care with the latest information in techniques and products.Book An Appointment
