The ACCESS TM toothbrush is recommended for brushing and cleaning the implants and O-rings. In addition, ultrasonic cleaners are ideal for ensuring that the metal housings are free from food impaction and debris.

Either mouthwash or 50-50 peroxide-water mixes are good solutions for the ultrasonic cleaner. You can also use a Waterpik (R) to rins out the implants and O-rings. Do not use effervescent cleaners, as they might cause the O-rings to deteriorate.

If the dentures do not remain securely in place, contact Dr. Bowen to discuss your problems. Dr. Bowen will perform the appropriate checkup and determine the condition and maintenance of your gums, the implants, and the O-rings.

Always remember that the implants and the dentures must be absolutely clean. You might need to use a lighter touch to rest each implant over its corresponding socket. When you push down on both sides of the denture, make sure you do so equally. If you still have difficulty, you may need another person, like a spouse or family member, to help you get the feel for placing the denture.

  1. Place your thumbs under each side of the lower denture rim.

  2. Push both sides up at the same time. You can also use your tongue to assist in the removal.
