Clean Your Implant Bridge Properly
The first step for caring for your implant bridge is cleaning it and your mouth correctly. Your first step to accomplishing this is to use a Waterpik twice a day. A Waterpik will help you dislodge any food that’s stuck in or around your bridge. We recommend using it on a medium or low setting.
Next, you should floss underneath the bridge once daily, preferably at night so you don’t go to sleep with food particles under your bridge. Using Super Floss from Oral B or a floss threader can make this process much easier.
Next, use interdental brushes to clean the dental implant area of your mouth. Then, use a sulcus brush or soft toothbrush to clean the entire surface of the bridge.
Lastly, consider rinsing with Peroxyl or another approved mouth rinse once per day to help remove smaller particles from beneath the bridge.
In addition to cleaning your bridge, you should also brush your tongue with a toothbrush or tongue scraper and some toothpaste to freshen up your breath and to remove bacteria from your mouth.
With these steps, you can look forward to a healthy mouth and long-lasting implant bridges.
