Check out this guide to learn everything you need to know about caring for your dental implants.
1. Use a Soft Nylon Brush
Make sure you avoid toothbrushes that contain hard bristles, as these can scratch the surface of your implants. In fact, you should avoid using any sort of metal instrument to clean your mouth once your implants are in place.

2. Avoid Abrasive Products
Whether it’s toothpaste or mouthwash, you’ll want to stick to buying sensitive cleaning products as much as possible once you get your dental implants.
This is because products that are too abrasive can cause extreme discomfort.

3. Floss Daily
Did you know that only 16% of Vietnamese adults floss every day? That means that 84% of people aren’t flossing enough!
If you’re a part this statistic, then it’s time to change things now that you have dental implants.

4. Avoid Sticky/Hard Foods
Some foods you should avoid after getting implants include:
• Ice
• Caramel
• Dried fruit
• Hard candies
• Hardshell tacos
• Potato chips
• Carrots
• Apples
• Steak
• Crusty bread

5. Avoid Smoking and Alcohol
Avoiding smoking and alcohol is a good idea for your health in general. However, it’s particularly important that you avoid these substances when you have dental implants.
Remember, your dental implants take about 6 months to heal, so smoking during this time period can be particularly detrimental. Also, drinking alcohol has shown to slow down the healing process of dental implants, so this should be avoided as much as possible.
