Following a good oral care routine of regularly brushing, flossing and rinsing your teeth can prolong the life of your dental bridge. You can also avoid problems with your bridge by:
– Making sure the bridge has been fitted properly; your bite should feel normal after a few days.
– Avoiding foods that could physically dislodge the bridge such as crusty bread.
– Regularly visiting the dentist for check-ups and booking regular professional cleaning with the hygienist.
“In the event that the bridge does fall out, the patient should seek professional help to replace the bridge.”
