Looking After Your Dental Bridge

teeth, health, smile, dentist, dentalhealth , oralhealthMost people will feel some discomfort or sensitivity in the days immediately after receiving a dental bridge. It can take a little bit of time to adjust to the feel of a new bridge after its fitting by your dentist.

Key takeaways:

– Brushing your teeth with toothpaste specifically designed to ease sensitivity can ease any immediate discomfort.

– Consult your dentist if your bite does not adjust and continues to feel unusual.

– Practice a good oral routine including regular flossing to help look after the dental bridge in the long term.

In the first few days after the dental appointment to place a bridge, it is common for patients to experience some tooth sensitivity, particularly when eating hot or cold foods.
