Bridge Maintenance

By now you’re probably enjoying the newfound strength and function of your teeth. Replacing your missing teeth with a fixed bridge should make a world of difference in your quality of life.

Here are a few suggestions for maintaining your new bridge:

  • Avoid hard or brittle foods, which can break the bridge
  • Lengthen the life of your restoration with a little extra flossing and brushing to eliminate the plaque that can build up between your bridge and your natural teeth
  • Use a floss threader or superfloss if you’re having trouble cleaning between your bridge and your gums
  • If you have soreness or feel any looseness, call us

Practice strong dental habits with your bridge, just as you would your own natural teeth, and it will last a long time.
