Does a dental bridge require special care?

Dental Bridge Care | Dentist in Bridgeton MOBridges don’t require any additional care other than your usual brushing and flossing routine (along with regular visits to our office, of course!). This is one of the benefits that a bridge has over a partial denture, which requires care using special products and occasional adjustments. Your bridge may eventually need an adjustment but it should last for several years with good care. 

Our Bridgeton Dental Bridges Are Like Your Natural Teeth

While bridges are made of synthetic materials and can’t decay the way that natural teeth can, you still need to practice good hygiene habits. A bridge can still build up plaque, and if plaque is allowed to harden into tartar along the gum line, you will increase your risk for periodontal disease. Additionally, plaque and tartar build-up between your bridge and your natural teeth can lead to decay.

Bridges are designed to be durable, but they aren’t impervious to damage. Biting down on hard objects such as ice, pens, pencils, or fingernails could cause your bridge to crack or become dislodged. Be especially careful when eating foods that could contain a pit such as cherries and olives. If your bridge does become damaged, please call our office right away so that we can repair your dentistry.
