Dental Implant Maintenance
Just like natural teeth, dental implants need regular maintenance cleanings. Because the implant post is made of titanium, special instruments need to be used when cleaning them. Dental implants should be checked regularly to keep them healthy. After Dr. Mangelson places an implant and it is restored by the general dentist, an xray is taken to establish a baseline so we can compare with future implant xrays when needed.
Our hygienists are specially trained in dental implant maintenance and in educating patients on the proper tools and methods of caring for dental implants.
