IMPORTANT: Aimed at the general public, the Bücco Guide is a general educational guide. Its content presents some of the most common dental practices. However, there are many approaches and philosophies in dentistry and your dentist / specialist will be able to advise you on what he believes to be the most appropriate for your oral health. Do not hesitate to consult a dentist / specialist for more information.
Immediately after implant surgery
Follow the post-operative instructions that your surgeon’s staff will have given you for the care of your wounds during their healing.
It is important to keep your mouth clean throughout your recovery and the osseointegration of the implants with the alveolar bone to reduce the risk of infection.
Adjust your tooth brushing so as not to disturb wounds unnecessarily.

Daily oral hygiene
Brush your remaining natural teeth (if applicable), gums and prosthesis at least twice a day or after each meal with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Your dental hygienist can advise you on the proper brushing technique if necessary.
Plaque and tartar can accumulate as easily on a prosthesis as on natural teeth. The consequences of plaque and tartar accumulation are numerous, including the appearance of stains on the prosthesis, bad breath, in addition to more serious problems, such as periodontal disease or bone loss that can jeopardize the success of treatment.
Plaque and tartar can also accumulate on teeth adjacent to a partial prosthesis (e. g. a bridge or a single crown) attached by implants, exposing you to the risk of developing cavities, gum disease such as gingivitis and digestive problems.
