Straws and Implant Failure - What You Need to Know

Posted on 10/25/2017 by Dr. Smith

Implant failure can happen to anyone. When you have an implant, sometimes things can go wrong. Straws sometimes cause problems for the person, which makes them not an ideal choice to go with when you're thinking of having implants put in the mouth.

While, back teeth implants might not cause many problems, it is important to note that front teeth implants and straws are usually where the problems lie.

Do Not Drink From Straws with Dental Implants

Once you have implants put into your mouth, it is important to know that you shouldn't drink from straws. Make sure to drink from cups. This is due to the fact that straws build up a decent amount of pressure, which then causes the implant to have a wealth of problems.

Bleeding and other mishaps have happened due to the patient drinking from a straw, especially immediately after surgery. To reduce the chances of complications, refrain from using straws.

In order to get the most out of your implants, dentists recommend staying away from straws if at all possible. This is because there is a chance that the implant can come loose or that further complications might arise, especially right after the procedure.

Speaking with our dentists more regarding the implants that you have and the do's and don'ts is highly recommended. You want to make the best choice and take care of them for as long as possible.
