A: No! 

Implants are made of a different material than natural teeth, which makes them resistant to tooth decay. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have to brush and floss! Dental implants can still experience inflammation of the tissues surrounding them and even bone loss! This is called peri-implantitis. Your implants can be best maintained with diligent home care (brushing and flossing) and hygiene visits to have them professionally cleaned along with the rest of your teeth.
