Need to Know: Dental Bridges

If you have a dental bridge you need to pay extra attention to your oral care routine to make sure your bridge lasts as long as possible.

Key takeaways:

– Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

– Floss under your bridge and around your teeth every day.

– Avoid hard foods like nutshells and hard candy.

See a dentist for a regular check-up and professional clean to keep your teeth, gums and bridge as healthy as possible.

“A dental bridge is expected to last longer than ten years if the patient pays attention to its care.”
