Are Dental Implants Susceptible to Gum Disease?

 

One of the best ways to replace a missing tooth is a dental implant as they function just like your natural teeth. It is very important however, to remember that just as a natural tooth they are capable of becoming diseased. It is imperative to take care of them and keep them clean at all times with proper oral health home care and visiting your dentists or periodontist regularly. With proper care your dental implant can last a lifetime.

 

Signs of peri-implant diseases are similar to symptoms of gum disease: red or tender gums around the implants, or bleeding when brushing. And just like your natural teeth, implants require regular tooth brushing and flossing and regular check-ups from a dental professional. Other risks factors for developing peri-implant disease include previous periodontal disease diagnosis, poor plaque control, smoking, and diabetes. It is essential to routinely monitor dental implants as part of a comprehensive periodontal evaluation. (ADA)
