Does Bridge Need Any Special Care?


You can care for crowns and bridges just as you do for your natural teeth. Regular brushing, professional cleanings, flossing, and checkups keep your teeth healthy and discourage decay. With good oral hygiene, bridges and crowns can last more than a decade.


A dental bridge that has been properly placed has a long expected lifetime of 10 to 15 years, but only if adequate maintenance practices are implemented. Therefore, it is essential for patients who have a dental bridge procedure to be advised of the best methods to care for the dental bridge and other teeth to increase the lifespan of the restoration.


One of the most important factors to consider for the proper maintenance of a dental bridge is following good oral hygiene practices to keep the teeth clean and reduce the risk of plaque accumulation and decay in the teeth.


Every time that an individual eats, dental plaque begins to accumulate on the surface of the teeth, particularly close to the crevices of the gums. If this plaque is not removed in a timely manner, it can cause a number of negative effects such as gingivitis and gingival recession. In particular, it is important for patients to brush their teeth with toothpaste twice a day with care daily.

Even with the appropriate oral care, it is still possible for complications to affect some patients. For this reason, regular dental checkups are important to monitor the health of the dental bridge and surrounding teeth so that action can be taken if necessary. Patients usually require check-up appointments twice a year, although it will depend on the specific situation.

 These checkups allow a dentist to examine the bridge carefully and check for any signs that there may be a problem with it or surrounding teeth. The teeth restoration can also be professionally cleaned and dental plaque or tartar can be removed.
