If I have an implant put in, does not mean I no longer have to have check-ups?

Dental implants require a degree of hygiene and check-up and maintenance visits that are similar to those for teeth. The frequency of visits is determined by the condition of the mouth of the patient (whether or not they have periodontitis, and to what extent) and by external factors, such as whether or not they smoke and the ability of the patient to brush their teeth correctly.

A patient who does not have periodontis and who does not smoke will only need a check-up once a year, while patients who have periodontis must have a check-up every 3-6 months, both to control the periodontitis in their teeth and to prevent the implants from developing periimplantitis./p>
