Dental bridges can quickly help you solve a single- or multi-tooth opening in your smile that’s left behind by tooth loss. How wonderful! It’s a fixed device, which means once it’s in place, you get to enjoy 24-hour wear, so you can simply get back to your usual life without worrying about removing or placing a prosthetic for a complete smile. With that said, your Moreno Valley dentist reminds you that there are some things you need to remember for a successful experience! Have questions? Always remember to give our Moreno Valley, CA team a call!
You Really Need To Clean Between The Bridge And Your Gums
Your Moreno Valley dentist knows that one of the benefits you love about your dental bridge is the fact that you can continue on with dental hygiene nearly as you always have! However, with that said, though you will be brushing and flossing in almost an identical fashion, there’s one thing to keep in mind: The little space between your bridge and your gum tissue. Simply remember to keep this area nice and clean (if you’re having trouble, just ask for help!), so you can avoid potential consequences, such as bad breath, decay, periodontal disease, and more!
Hard, Sticky Foods Can Cause Damage: Be Careful!
That dental bridge is in place, as we have bonded it to your teeth. It’s going to offer you long-term wear and stable wear at that! However, it is not fully immune to damage (just like your teeth and gums are not immune either). Remember that the same foods that can damage natural tissue can damage a bridge, too! When food is extremely hard, it can cause problems. If food is very sticky and can yank on or get stuck to your bridge, this can cause damage, too. Make wise choices, so you keep your entire smile safe!
