Can I get cavities on my implant?

Another common questions that we get about dental implants is whether or not you can get cavities in your implant. 

The simple answer is no -- because your implant is made of synthetic material, it cannot decay like a normal tooth and you will not get cavities on it. You still, however, need to clean and brush your gums and other teeth to maintain good oral hygiene. While you may not be able to get cavities in the implant, you can still get cavities in your surrounding teeth, and gum complications can also occur if you do not properly care for your implant. One of the most common places for cavities to occur is BETWEEN teeth, so make sure to continue to brush and floss around your implant to protect the teeth next to it!
