If you have recently replaced a missing tooth with a dental bridge, then you most likely have a healthier and more beautiful smile! To maintain that status, it’s important to take good care of your dental bridge. That way you can have a restoration that lasts many years. To help you do so, our dentist, Dr. Aaron Horsley-Teny, encourages you to do the following things:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: This means you need to brush twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. These things can remove the bacteria from around the bridge and along the gumline to help you prevent dental issues and to help you keep your bridge in the best shape possible.
-Attend your checkups: You need to visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. These checkups help you clean the plaque and tartar away from your bridge to help you avoid the development of gum disease. The examination allows our dental team to make sure your bridge is still in good shape. If it’s not, we can provide treatments to fix it.
