Incision site, location of the procedure and the use of synthetic material raises the risk of infection. Most of the implants are made of well-tolerated material like expanded polytetrafluoroethylene but risk is still there. Mouth is an ideal place for bacterial growth due to its moist, warmness and dirtiness.
Bacteria can be disrupted by the dental work; this opening led it to the blood stream and later onto your weakest body parts, including the avascular tissue capsules around the implants. Additionally, mobile tissues take a bit longer period in healing than of the tissues that aren’t mobile. Constant movement of lips gives them less chances of recovery. To avoid these kinds of problems and irritation doctors trim the edges of implants.
To control the infection rates in your mouth, keep it clean, rise regularly with Listerine and avoid picking incision sites. Always eat well-washed fruits/ vegetables and well-cooked meat to decrease the chances of getting infected. Good oral hygiene is matchless in treating these problems. Cure your cavities and dental diseases before getting into lip augmentation process.
