Do you want your dental bridge to restore your smile and oral health for many years? If so, you need to do all you can to keep it in tip-top shape. If you care for and clean your bridge regularly, it can help you for a longer period of time. So, please do your best to keep your dental bridge in the best condition possible. To help you do so, our dentist, Dr. Peter Lo Destro, encourages you to do the following things:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s important to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. It’s also important to floss daily with a product that is easy to use. Lastly, it’s important to rinse your mouth daily with antibacterial mouthwash. These things can remove the bacteria from your mouth and keep your bridge as well as your teeth in the best condition possible.
-Attend your checkups: It’s best to visit our office every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. The cleaning treatments offered can help you remove harmful substances from your smile and around your bridge, which can keep your restoration in tip-top shape. The examination can help our team ensure that your bridge is still functional and strong. If it’s not, we will provide treatments to help you.
