Dental Bridge: Cleaning and Care 

Apr 10 2022

Having missing or damaged teeth can be embarrassing, diminishing your confidence and lowering your self-esteem. But missing teeth aren’t something you have to live with—a dental bridge and other cosmetic dentistry solutions can help. To learn more about cleaning and care requirements for a dental bridge, call Distinctive Dental Solutions today. 

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that is used to fill the gap that is created by one or more missing teeth. The bridge is made by crowns on either side of the bridge that are secured into the mouth on healthy teeth; the false teeth are in the middle of the bridge. Dental bridges are specifically designed for people who have one or more missing teeth, but who also have healthy teeth near the missing ones. 

How to Clean & Care for a Dental Bridge

Caring for a dental bridge is very similar to how you should care for your other teeth. You should brush your teeth after every meal, floss daily, and get regular dental cleanings. Your dental bridge is secured within your mouth, so you should brush the bridge just as you would brush your other teeth. Keep in mind that dental health also extends beyond brushing and check-ups: you should also eat a balanced diet and limit your consumption of sugary beverages. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?

Whether or not you’re a good candidate for a dental bridge is a determination that only your dentist can make. You may be a good candidate if you are missing one or a few teeth all in a row and have healthy teeth adjacent to the missing teeth. Having healthy teeth is critical for proper securement of the dental bridge. If you have missing teeth but are not a good candidate for a dental bridge, there are other cosmetic dentistry procedures available that may be more appropriate.
