Cleaning your All-On-4

Caring for your new All on 4 dental implants is like caring for your natural teeth: Brush and floss daily, use waterpik and maintain regular cleanings and check up with your dentist in Cancun, the patient and doctor must work as a team to ensure longevity of their new All on 4 dental implants!

Now, there are people that claim these types of “implant dentures” do not work because even though they might be a perfect fit, some food debris might still get into some crevices and will lead to gum disease or other problems. What they don’t tell you is there are ways to clean the “inside” without doing a complete maintenance of your teeth. For this you will be using a water irrigator, also known as water flosser.

This is a small device that pumps out a stream of pressured water to clean places in your mouth where the toothbrush and regular floss cannot get. In fact, water irrigators are so good we also recommend using them even if you still have all your teeth. They do an excellent job getting rid of the biofilm and the plaque build up around the base of the teeth.

Using the water flosser will help you prevent complications with food debris whether you have All-on-4 implants, regular implants or even porcelain crowns. Besides your normal brushing it is recommended to use the water irrigator once a day before going to sleep.
