Cleanings for Dental Implants in Pasadena
Dental implants require their own special care
When properly looked after, dental implants can last a lifetime. As they require their own special teeth cleaning techniques, we teach implant patients how to look after their dental implants and show them the special tools and techniques to use.
Implant-supported replacement teeth require professional cleaning just like natural teeth, and our hygienists are trained in implant cleanings. We recommend that a patient with dental implants gets two to three cleanings per year. One bonus: you won’t experience any sensitivity during your implant cleaning.
Can you get gum disease around dental implants?
You can, it is called peri-implantitis and the causes and complications are slightly different than gum disease. The symptoms are similar to regular gum disease and most especially include:
- An unpleasant taste in the mouth
- Discharge from the gum
- Bleeding when brushing
Peri-implantitis can’t be treated with regular deep cleaning, but we can treat it using our soft-tissue laser. Learn more about laser treatment for Dental Implants.
