For the teeth present in the upper upper arch, the action must take place from top to bottom, while for those present in the lower arch from the bottom to the top. This allows the interproximal spaces to be reached without damaging the gums. The toothbrush should be replaced every 3 months.

Dentist Albania - Maintenance of oral hygiene after insertion of the dental implant
As in the case of natural teeth, you must take into account the cleaning of the dental implants. Plaque and bacteria that form around the implant can cause inflammation known under the name of peri-implantitis.

Careful and precise oral hygiene is a priority since plaque accumulations form the tartar which leads to the withdrawal of the gums and the bone in which the implant has been inserted and everything leads to the exposure of the implant and in some cases even up to the loss of the system.
