People who get dental implants are typically very satisfied with how they look and function. However, it’s important to realise that the implants require proper care to avoid a complication called peri-implantitis:
– This condition occurs when the gum around the implant becomes inflamed; symptoms include tenderness, pain or bleeding around the implant or even a loose implant.
– The dentist will only allow suitable candidates to receive dental implants to minimise any complications.
– The risk of getting peri-implantitis can be reduced by practising good oral hygiene and quitting smoking.
With regular visits to your dentist following your dental implant procedure, you can ensure that peri-implantitis isn’t an issue.
