Does a dental bridge require special care?

A man smiles in the dental chair | Dentist Edina MNYes, a dental bridge requires special care because it cannot be flossed in the same way as stand-alone teeth.  A bridge connects 2 or more teeth to replace a missing tooth.  This means that floss needs to be threaded underneath the missing space to keep it clean.  Dental bridge threaders are loops that you put floss through that can help you get underneath your bridge to keep it clean.  Although your bridge covers most of your natural tooth, it is still possible to get decay on the tooth underneath.  It is also possible to have gum problems around the supporting teeth.  That means it is still very important to take good care of your bridge.

If you've got additional questions regarding your dental bridge, or about getting a dental bridge, please don't hesitate to contact our office here at 50th and France Dental Care.
