A dental bridge is one of the most popular and effective ways to replace missing or damaged teeth. Although a bridge looks and behaves just like natural teeth it will require a little extra care and attention to ensure it lasts and functions properly. With proper care, a bridge can last a decade and more.
Caring properly for a dental bridge includes:
– Using a fluoride toothpaste
– Carefully flossing in and around the bridge
– Having teeth regularly cleaned by a dentist
Regular check-ups at the dentist should also include an assessment of the “health of the bridge” in case of possible damage or problems. An article on caring for dental bridges can be found at https://www.news-medical.net/news/20170922/Care-for-Dental-Bridges.aspx.
