5. Follow-up support/care
For the implantation to be effective in addition to the actual treatment, intensive follow-up care is important, which we take very seriously at our surgery in Mainz.
The dental surgery specialist or his trained team of dental assistants carry out the check-up and follow-up examinations professionally, carefully and skilfully. An important element here is dental care in the form of regular check-ups. In addition to embedding the inserted implant firmly in the jawbone, the surrounding gums and bed are also examined. As with natural teeth, implants may involve inflammation in the immediate vicinity, which is caused by bacterial plaque.
By checking the gums surrounding the implant of the individual teeth, the dentist can recognise and treat this at an early stage. If required, we also take an X-ray at our surgery in Mainz to check that the implant is firmly embedded in the bone.
Furthermore, regular professional cleaning of teeth at individually specified intervals helps achieve a positive long-term outcome. Intensive cleaning removes bacterial plaque especially on the surface of the new implant, in the interdental space and in the area of the implant neck – to guarantee beautiful teeth, which we recommend at our surgery in Mainz at least once a year.
