Ways of Keeping Your Body from Rejecting Dental Implants


Posted on 3/25/2020 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
Ways of Keeping Your Body from Rejecting Dental ImplantsWhile it's rare, it is possible for your body to reject a dental implant. When this happens, we have to surgically remove it and look at alternatives.

For some, that means getting dentures instead of implants, and we know that can be disappointing. That's why you want to look for ways of preventing your body from rejecting your implants. Here are a few things you can do.

Take Care of Your Implants

Just because the posts are made of titanium and the fake teeth attached to them are made from durable materials doesn't mean you don't have to take care of them. You need to brush and floss regularly, just like you would if you had a mouth of all-natural teeth.

Brush after each meal and floss once a day. Use mouthwash. Come see us every six months. In short, do all of the normal things you would do to take care of your teeth. Otherwise, you could get an infection that causes your body to reject the implants.

Don't Grind Your Teeth

Grinding your teeth is another issue that can cause your body to reject the implants. That's because you may grind down on your teeth so hard that you break the implant or cause it to move. If that happens, the body may see it as an attack and start rejecting the implant. If you know you grind your teeth in your sleep, talk to us about a mouth guard. It will help ensure that your new implants don't get damaged in any way.

Be Careful Playing Sports

Also, if you play sports, be sure you take the appropriate precautions. Always wear the correct headgear and be safe while playing. If you do suffer a blow to the face, come see us as soon as possible. In addition to checking your implants, we can make certain you aren't suffering from any other type of dental or head trauma.
