Just as oral hygiene is important for the longevity of your teeth, it is also vital for longevity of dental implants. More attention to oral hygiene is needed right after the surgery as the healing is underway. After surgery when the implant is restored, the implant is prone to gingival and periodontal disease same as a natural tooth would get it. Proper oral hygiene care is necessary after the dental implant is placed to keep it functional for long time.
