How to take care of teeth after dental bridge procedure

For those who have lost teeth inserting dental bridge is a better alternative to denture. Dental bridge is permanent, which is better than denture. It makes a person more confident, beautiful and acts like natural teeth. Can eat, speak, and live normally

Since bridge is permanently attached to our mouth, it also needs to be taken cared for and cleaned so that the tooth bridge can be used for a long time, and does not cause any problems with other teeth Including gum tissue etc.

The following recommendations will help us take care of the dental bridge:

1. Brush your teeth at least 2 times a day properly with a normal soft-bristled toothbrush.

2. Use dental floss to clean at least 1 time per day to prevent food particles stuck under the bridge or around the bridge. Using dental floss to clean the bridge May be more difficult than natural teeth because the floss must be inserted under the dental bridge. We recommend using a dental floss together with dental floss threader to allow the floss to be inserted under the bridge easily or you may use superfloss Z. If possible, floss after every meal because there is a chance that food scraps will be trapped under the bridge compared to natural teeth

3. You should be extra careful when eating. Try to avoid eating sticky food, hard food, as it may damage the crown-bridge. If the bridge is chipped, cracked, broken or damaged, do not fix it by yourself, you should see a dentist immediately

4. You should regularly visit your dentist every 6 months for check, clean and scaling.

5. You should strictly follow the advice of the dentist.
