Implant Care and Maintenance
At Lumin8 Dentistry, we believe that proper care and maintenance are essential for ensuring the long-term success of your dental implants. Led by Dr. Jun Carrington, our experienced team is dedicated to providing comprehensive implant care and guidance to our patients in Lakewood, WA, to help them maintain healthy and beautiful smiles for years to come.

After the placement of dental implants, it’s crucial to follow a diligent oral hygiene routine to keep your implants and surrounding tissues clean and free from plaque and bacteria. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, as well as flossing daily to remove plaque and debris from between the teeth and around the implants. Additionally, using an antimicrobial mouthwash can help to reduce bacterial growth and maintain oral health.

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also an essential part of implant care and maintenance. During these appointments, Dr. Carrington and our hygienists will thoroughly clean and examine your implants and surrounding tissues to ensure that they are in good condition. Any signs of inflammation, infection, or other issues will be addressed promptly to prevent further complications and preserve the integrity of your implants.

In addition to proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, it’s important to avoid habits and behaviors that can compromise the stability and longevity of your dental implants. This includes avoiding chewing on hard objects such as ice or pens, as well as refraining from smoking or using tobacco products, which can increase the risk of implant failure and complications.

We will work closely with you to develop a personalized care plan that meets your individual needs and helps you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for life.
