The misconception about tooth loss and dental hygiene

At the Brighton Implant Clinic, we are renowned for our dental implant treatment and because of this, we have lots of patients who come to us who have suffered tooth loss. A common misconception is that if you don’t have natural teeth then what is there to clean? However, even if you have lost all of your teeth, wear dentures or have dental implants it is still important to look after your dental hygiene.

Bacteria still lives in the mouth and it is still important to look after your soft mouth tissue and gum health. Patient’s should know that they are still at risk of oral diseases with or without teeth and that gum disease is a serious condition that can lead to bone loss.

Do you have dental implants? It is important to know how to keep your mouth clean and healthy. Without this, you are prone to infection and diseases which could cause your implant to fail. Book an appointment with us today to learn more.
