Avoid These Dental Implant Complications
Peri-implantitis is a condition that involves inflammation of the gum tissue surrounding a dental implant. This complication can put your dental implant at risk, but can be avoided with good oral hygiene.
– Peri-implantitis is caused by bacteria nesting in the gums around the implants.
– Signs and symptoms of peri-implantitis include redness and tender gums, pain bleeding and pus.
– Risk factors include tobacco use, diabetes, periodontitis and poor oral hygiene.
Brush your teeth twice a day, floss regularly and visit your dentist for exams and cleanings to keep gums and teeth healthy. Floss gently around your implants so you don’t damage the gum tissue.
