Dental Implants: What Your Dentist Hasn’t Told You

A female dental patient became a “migrant” between multiple dental offices for months. Several clinics declined to treat her one after another. They were reluctant to take over a failed implant that had been performed elsewhere, or unable to heal her inflamed teeth. Certainly, the patient suffered unspeakably. She couldn’t eat normally—the implant location in her mouth kept getting infected and festering.  At last, after great effort, the patient met with Dr. Ming-Ko Li, executive director of the Association of Asian Reconstructive Dentistry and head of Ricon Dental Clinic in Taiwan.

That's because mouthwash kills bacteria, cosmetic dentist  Brian Harris , DDS, tells Health. Although it's a natural part of the mouth's ecosystem, bacteria can turn into plaque when mixed with sugary or starchy foods, according to the  Cleveland Clinic .
