One of the most common risks associated with dental implants is post-procedure infection.

The risk of infection is also minimized when patients entrust their oral health in the capable hands of the dentists at the Dental Clinic in Dubai, as experience can make all the difference in the success of a dental implant procedure.
Here are just some of the many ways that a patient can avoid infection after being fitted with dental implants.
- Have the treatment done by an experienced implant dentist. A majority of the infections resulting in dental implants occurs due to the introduction of bacteria into the mouth during or immediately after implant surgery. Therefore, refrain from using an oral surgeon who are inexperienced or who cannot show you that they have a history of success in placing implants. Also, make sure that your implants are being placed in a safe, hygienic, accredited surgical facility by skilled professionals.
- The type of dental implant that is used can make a big difference. Not all dental implants, the titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to support replacement teeth are created equal. Implants of lesser quality can fit poorly, allowing bacteria to enter through minute spaces. Make sure that your dentist uses only the finest quality dental implants. The patient has the right to ask and check for the dental products that are used.
- Follow all the aftercare instructions carefully. Once the surgery is complete, the aftercare regime that should be followed will be given by the dentist. Following these instructions to the letter is essential on your road to a quick and complications free recovery. Patients will be advised of how to care for the teeth and may be prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection.
- Quit smoking. If you are a smoker, the best thing you can do after having dental implants is to quit smoking to avoid infection, in fact, quit smoking permanently as this can ensure the long-term success of your dental implants and oral health. Smoking is a leading cause of infections in the mouth and can lead not only to the failure of your implants, but also with the loss of your remaining natural teeth.
