In addition to frequent brushing, you should floss as many times as you brush. It should a part of your oral health maintenance routine.

Flossing is important as it ensures that al food particles that may not be reached by the toothbrush are removed. Just like brushing, flossing prevents the growth and breeding of bacteria. Also, flossing is a great and recommended way of ensuring that the slightest decay or any gum disease is easily detected. This ensures that there is a faster and successful healing process.

Ensure you regularly visit your dentist.

After the dental implant surgery your dentist will need to see the progress of the recovery. In addition to brushing and flossing regularly, it is important to go for professional cleaning as a dentist may reach some parts that you may be unable to reach. Normally, it is recommended that you should go for professional cleaning at least after every three months until you are healed. It is after these sessions that your dentist will be able to recommend the frequency of dental visits that best suits you.  This frequency varies from one individual to the other and it ensures that you do not contract any gum diseases.

By following these two tips, you can rest assured that you will have a smooth recovery time.
