Dental implants are modeled after anatomical teeth. But do they require any extra-special treatment when it comes to daily home care?

Your oral hygiene is an integral piece of how successful your implant treatment will be. With healthy gums and bone tissue, your implants have the potential to last an entire lifetime. Here’s everything you need to do to keep your implants stable for the decades to come:

Floss Your Implants Daily
The absolute most important thing that a dental implant patient must do is floss around their implants daily. Otherwise, buildup can accumulate around the neck of the implant and under the gums, resulting in infection and implant failure. But if flossing is too much of a challenge, an easier — and just as effective — alternative is to invest in a water flosser. Just make sure you’re cleaning around and between your implants every single day.
Invest in an Electric Toothbrush
Electric toothbrushes are excellent for removing plaque buildup across your implants and near the gumlines. They also provide added stimulation to your gum tissue, which then boosts blood flow and helps keep your gingiva as healthy as possible.
Consider Wearing a Nightguard
Although dental implants are stronger than natural teeth, your fixed restorations can still succumb to teeth clenching and grinding. Sleeping in a nightguard will safeguard your porcelain crowns and bridges to help them last much longer.
Schedule Regular Checkups
Special tools are needed to safely (and effectively) clean around dental implants. Plan to reserve a checkup every six months, just like you would with natural teeth.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

Mindy W.

This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

Raj G.

Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

Chahab S.

Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

Paul M.

A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
