Yes after completion. After the implant is fully integrated and restored, yes. Until then you should check with your own dentist.
Usually No, unless. For almost all of the dental implants out there, the answer is that it is fine. If you have one of the few all-ceramic, zirconium implants, then you do not want to use an electric (or sonic) tooth brush during the healing phase. Ask your cosmetic dentist who will build the crown on the implant, or the specialist who did the implant surgery for specific directions.
Yes. You can use a battery powered toothbrush to clean a dental implant. Most battery powered toothbrushes will do a fine job.
Yes. Electrical or mechanical both are fine. What is important in brushing is correct technic and make sure you brush long enough (not less than 2 minutes).
Yes. My recommended toothbrush for dental implant patients is the sonic-care toothbrush. This seems to do the best job of cleaning.
Yes. That should not be a problem. Electric toothbrushes are fairly gentle. But check with your dentist first.
Dental Implants. Proper oral hygiene is an important element of dental and implant health. Hand and electric toothbrush makes no difference. The key is how one performs the hygiene. The goal of oral hygiene is to remove plaque from the teeth, gum, restorations, implants, etc. Having said that, I like electric brushes and recommend that to my patients.
Yes. Care around dental implants is very similar to natural teeth. Brushing and flossing, is routine, but may require an extra cleaning lesson or an extra visit per year to the hygienist.
Yes. There are no contraindication on electric tooth brush with implants, remember is a massage motion, do not force the toothbrush againt the tooth or teh gum.
Yes. You should have no problems with an electric toothbrush. Waterpics are fine as well.
Yes. No problem.
Yup. Yes. No danger.
Yes. Yes, just wait until the crown is put on the implant.
Yes. But it isn't a replacement for good flossing.
Yes. No problem, use gentle pressure. Best of all wait until it integrates and a tooth is placed on the implant.
Yes. Once the tissue has healed, you may use an electric brush and even a water irrigation device (low setting at first). When the implant is fully restored the electric brush and waterpik are advised for optimal care.
Yes. Electric or sonic toothbrushes are preferred because they are less traumatic and more efficient than manual brushing.
Yes, be gentle. It is more important how you brush than what kind of toothbrush you use. Make sure your toothbrush has soft bristles and that you are not pressing hard on the toothbrush. You need to be brushing for at least 2 minutes and floss daily.
Yes., If you have healthy tissue (the firm gums referred to as attached tissue) then it should be fine. Check with your dentist if you are not sure.
