What are the advantages of dental implant?
01 the effect is long-lasting and does not damage the adjacent teeth
The implant teeth do not affect the healthy adjacent teeth, they exist independently by their own root, and do not need to grind the healthy teeth on both sides, and will not cause food impaction between denture and healthy teeth and cause new caries of healthy teeth
Effective protection of alveolar bone
The artificial roots of
implants are deeply embedded in the alveolar bone, which can effectively prevent alveolar bone atrophy and alveolar bone absorption
03 the teeth are stable and firm after implantation
Some people will encounter the situation that the complete denture can’t be worn, and it is easy to fall off when talking and eating.
full fixed implant is better than traditional denture
04 dental implants make the mouth more comfortable and beautiful
There are no hooks or braces in traditional inlay methods, so they are very beautiful, just like new teeth
At the same time, because the denture base is small, even without base, the implant teeth are very comfortable and have no foreign body feeling.
In addition, there is no pain in the teeth like wearing heavy removable dentures.
How expensive are dental implants?

After 24 hours, oral hospital experts generally recommend normal brushing.
The post-operative toothbrush (0.1 mm in diameter) can be used in 1-2 weeks after surgery, which can provide milder cleaning power than the sensitive toothbrush (0.15 mm in diameter)
2. Maintenance after repair
It includes the use of toothbrushing, flossing, crevice brush, elastic massage interdental brush and tooth washing device
Oral hospital experts said: soft bristle toothbrush, single bundle toothbrush and gap brush have no damage to titanium implant. Combined with low grinding toothpaste, plaque can be effectively removed
Dental floss is a method to remove plaque on the adjacent surface of teeth. It is generally recommended to brush teeth once a day
The implant bridge needs to use dental floss distractor or orthodontic dental floss (without tractor) through the bottom of the bridge to clean the gap between the bridge and the alveolar ridge.
(2) it is also a method to remove the plaque on the adjacent surface of implant and the surface of attachment. It is necessary to avoid the metal part from touching the surface of implant. Therefore, elastic massage brush with rubber texture is also a good choice
3. Maintenance of professional doctors
However, in order to completely remove the plaque, professional methods such as manual mechanical scaling, laser treatment, sand blasting and chlorhexidine washing are needed
Therefore, the plaque control and removal of implant patients should be combined with regular review and professional cleaning
