Caring for Your Implant Supported Bridge in Irving
How to Take Care of Bridges
Bridges are semi-permanent prosthetic devices that are positioned onto existing teeth or implants by a prosthodontist. Bridges are commonly used aesthetically to cover gaps, or missing teeth. Typically, bridges are cemented to natural teeth or screwed to dental implants surrounding the space where the tooth once was.
To maintain a long-term solution, taking care of an implant supported bridge is of the utmost importance. As with your natural teeth, bridges can become loose or even fall out if neglected. Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing twice per day. A Water Pik – or water flosser – is also a suitable solution to help remove bacteria and food particles from hard-to-reach areas. Avoid chewing sticky, chewy, or hard foods. See your prosthodontist and hygienist regularly for professional cleanings and check-ups.
