Can I Get Cavities If I Have A Dental Implant?

Posted on 3/20/2023 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Can I Get Cavities If I Have A Dental Implant?Are you considering dental implants to replace a missing tooth? If yes, you may have questions such as can dental implants get cavities? Since most dental implants are made of titanium or titanium alloys, they cannot get cavities. Besides, dental implant crowns consist of synthetic materials such as ceramic and porcelain. This means they can only experience damage from extreme forces that cause breaking.

What Makes Dental Implants Resistant To Cavities?

One advantage of dental implants is that they are resistant to cavities. Therefore, what's unique about this tooth replacement procedure? Dental implants consist of titanium, and the crown is made of metals such as porcelain. This results in a strong material that blends well with natural teeth. Since it is an artificial tooth, it is less prone to cavities.

That being said, it is still vital to implement good oral hygiene as you would for your natural teeth. Taking good care of dental implants can extend their lifespan. They can last for up to 30 years or a lifetime. While dental implants cannot get cavities, plaque can build up between them and the natural teeth, causing gum diseases. You can also experience issues such as bad breath and tooth decay in the permanent teeth.

How to Take Care of Dental Implants

While you might take time to adjust to dental implants, it is good to implement good care to make them last longer. A good way to care for your dental implant is by brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Hard-bristled does more harm than good to your teeth. They can cause the gums to bleed or force oral bacteria into the gum line, which can result in periodontal disease.

Another oral care tip for dental implants involves using dental implant toothpaste. Some toothpaste contains stain removers that can damage the implant crowns. If you aren't sure of the toothpaste to use for a dental implant, it is advisable to consult a dentist. Contact us today for any questions regarding dental implants.
