Oral hygiene is very important for all periodontal and implant treatment. In the preparatory stage the gum inflammation is reduced to prepare the patient for the surgical stage and once this has finished the maintenance stage begins. To maintain a healthy mouth and avoid reinfections or recurrences it is necessary to carry out periodical check-ups and hygiene maintenance.
Implants can suffer from peri-implantitis in the same way that teeth can suffer from periodontitis, so they require the same periodic care and maintenance after being inserted.
Halitosi (bad breath) is also treated in our center since the cause, in 80% of the cases, is bacteria from the oral cavity.
