( — February 9, 2021) — Whether you have a temporary fixed bridge or “All on 4” dental implants installed, it’s really important that you maintain daily dental care to avoid any damage to the gums and boost the longevity of your implant. There are specific ways how All-on-four dental implants should be cleaned and cared for. The key is to remove any remains of the food particles, bacteria that clings around the bridge and prevent bacterias from damaging the bridge, which can eventually cause bad mouth odors and serious gum disease.

While the best option is to go to a professional dentist to have your implants examined and cleaned, At ABC Dental Implant Center of Las Vegas, we have come up with a simple yet effective cleaning regime that you can do at home daily to maintain the health and durability of your All-on-4 dental implants.


Brushing twice a day is necessary to maintain healthy oral health. When you have All-on-4 dental implants implanted, ensure that you use a soft-bristled, gentle, good quality toothbrush. Give the bridge and all your natural teeth a good brush for about 2-3 minutes. Gently brush in circular movements from the teeth enamel all the way down to the gum line. Using a slim-headed interdental brush or soft-bristled toothbrushes can be helpful especially if implants are implanted at the back of the mouth. 


Food particles can easily get stuck beneath the gum line around your dental implants, which can easily lead to the development of bacteria in the mouth. Flossing helps remove those food particles that brushing misses out. If you have All-on-4 dental implants, use dental floss tools that are specifically designed for use with crowns or bridges. They usually have a fuzzy middle encased between two nylon ends. They are designed to help clean the implant’s surface and the area of porcelain at your gum line. After brushing, thoroughly floss all areas of your implant crowns as well as the rest of your teeth to ensure complete clean up of your mouth.

Continue with your dental check-ups

In addition to daily home care, it is important that you also continue your dental check-up routines, to maintain the health and durability of your implants. Make a point to visit your dentist for regular checkups. This is a good opportunity for your dentures to get a professional cleaning. Your dentist will also check for any damage or loosening and restore them and also advise you on how to properly clean and maintain your dental implants at home.
