How to Care for a Dental Bridge

Do you have a dental bridge in New York, New York? If so, it’s important to take very good care of it. Your dental bridge can last you many years if you keep it in tip-top shape. To help you do so, our Wynatte Chu, DDS team recommends doing the following things:

-Brush, floss, and rinse: It’s best to keep up on oral hygiene each and every day. You will need to brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss once a day with an easy-to-use product, and rinse once a day with antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. Make sure each product and tool you use has been approved by the American Dental Association.

-Attend your dental checkups: Make sure to visit your dentist, Dr. Wynatte Chu, every six months for your routine dental cleaning and checkup. This will help you keep plaque and bacteria away from the dental bridge. It will also give your dentist the chance to fix any problems if necessary.

-Be mindful of where you chew: Sometimes your dental bridge can’t handle the foods you eat, especially when it’s first placed in your mouth. So, please try not to chew sticky or hard foods on the side of your mouth where the dental bridge lies.

If you keep up on oral hygiene, visit your dentist, and avoid chewing hard or sticky foods with your bridge, you’ll be on the right track toward a strong and successful dental bridge. For more information and details about dental bridges, please call our office today at 347-868-6546 and talk to a member of our dental team. We’re happy to help you!
