Understanding Dental Bridges

Bridges in dentistry are prosthetic devices that are used to replace teeth that are missing. In addition to restoring your smile, bite, and speech, they are secured to your existing teeth or implants and play an important role in the process.

Post-Op Instructions

Adjusting to Your Dental Bridges

Initially, you may feel some discomfort or notice slight changes in your speech. These sensations are normal and usually subside as you become accustomed to the bridge.

Oral Hygiene is Key

Good oral hygiene is essential. Brush twice a day and floss under and around your bridge to prevent plaque buildup. Special flossing aids like water flossers or interdental brushes can be helpful.

Eating with Care

As you gradually return to your regular diet, begin with foods that are easier to digest. For the sake of preventing damage to your bridge, you should avoid biting directly on foods that are hard or sticky.

Avoid Harmful Habits

Refrain from habits like nail-biting, chewing ice, or using your teeth as tools. These can weaken or damage your dental bridge.

Aftercare Tips

Regular Dental Visits

Maintain regular dental visits for check-ups and professional cleanings. This is vital for the health of your teeth and longevity of your bridge.

Address Discomfort Promptly

If you experience persistent discomfort or if the bridge feels loose, contact us immediately.

Protect Your Investment

Consider wearing a night guard if you ever have grinding problems while sleeping to protect both your bridge and natural teeth.

Monitoring Your Oral Health

Pay attention to the health of your gums and remaining natural teeth. Issues like gum disease or tooth decay can affect the stability of your bridge.

Long-Term Care

Consistent Oral Care

Continue with diligent oral care routines. This not only protects your bridge but also your overall dental health.

Be Mindful of Your Diet

Maintaining a balanced diet is important for oral health. Nutritious foods can strengthen your teeth and gums, supporting the longevity of your bridge.
