If Fitted with Clear Choice (4 on 1) Upper Dental Implants, How Do You Clean Artificial Teeth?

How does one clean the artificial teeth, and the space between the appliance and the gum? Does food get trapped in the space, and are the gums therefore prone to peridontal disease? Thank you.

Cleaningthe space under the appliance is easily accomplished with a Sonicare type toothbrush, a waterpik, or a Sonicare Air Flosser.  Sometimes simple rinses suffice as well.  If food gets trapped you may get peri-implantitis

Butler self threaders, yarn and you should know are your teeth going to be screwed down, cemented or snap on and off?
