Five Weapons for your bathroom

To keep your teeth healthy and strong, you will need these five weapons in your bathroom arsenal.

  • Toothbrush: look for special brushes (like gentle interdental brushes or angled brush heads) that is an extra soft bristle brush to avoid damage to your teeth. Make sure to brush twice a day or after every meal.
  • Interdental brush/proxabrush: this type of brush can be useful in cleaning areas that are hard to access. Use only in areas where it can be inserted fairly easily or you’ll risk your gums to recede around your implants if you push it into tight spaces.
  • Floss: Choose a floss designed for dental implants. Unwaxed floss is good. Check with your dentist to see what is best for you. But flossing daily is an important tool in the fight against gum disease and maintaining good oral health.
  • Oral irrigator/water pick: It should be used twice a day to help irrigate in and around your teeth and implants. Can help against bleeding gums, inflammation and gingivitis.
  • Mouthwash: Choose an antimicrobial rinse to use twice a day to kill bacteria in your mouth and reduce gum inflammation. Mouthwash is very useful, especially to access those hard-to-reach areas in your mouth.

Full arch implant alternatives

Removable partial denture

A removable dental device that is held in place by adjacent teeth or clasps around existing teeth. It usually clips around the existing teeth or sticks to the gum. Partial dentures can be made from nylon or acrylic. You remove it at night for cleaning and to recover overnight.

Removable complete denture

The denture rests on the area that held your natural teeth. It is supported by the gums. These types of dentures can be bulky and uncomfortable affecting how you can chew food limiting your choice of foods. They can move around in your mouth while you talk to someone, when you smile and when you eat. On average, dentures can last several years require a new fit after your gums alter over time.

Resin-bonded bridge

These types of support are usually suitable when replacing front teeth where you bite and chew less. A resin-bonded bridge has wings that are attached to a tooth being replaced. It is made from metal alloy or all-ceramic material. Resin-bonded bridge can work better than removable dentures but weaker than a fixed bridge.

Tooth-supported fixed bridge

Used when only one tooth needs to be restored. A fixed bridge relies on the tooth on either side to be replaced being grounded down to fit the bridge securely in place. So, the teeth on both sides support the artificial tooth in between them. It can be made from porcelain or other metal alloys.
