I have had implants on four teeth for going on three years now and have never cleaned them any differently than my other teeth. I do floss differently since there is not a ligament but my dentists have all said my implants and gums are very healthy.@NervousUSA hey! ☺️ Thanks for letting me know about this. I wasn't aware of it as I thought that normal cleaning will be sufficient. But I do have a waterpik. Will definitely check with my dentist about it on next Wednesday. I've been wondering am I allowed to wear my retainer after the surgery? Will I be able to brush my teeth (except to avoid the surgical area) after the surgery?
My main concern is actually the bleeding. I'm really afraid of blood. I'm afraid that the blood won't clot.
Anyway, congratulations for having the crown put on! I'm so happy for you that you've came such a long way since we first spoken about it you're really brave and I'm really really proud of you. Do invest in a waterpik as it really change my world. I've really bad gums in the past prior to braces. My gum started became healtier after using waterpik before flossing and brushing.
