If you are missing one or more teeth, it’s in your best interest to have them replaced. Without a full set of teeth, you can’t eat or speak as effectively as you otherwise could. The empty spaces in your mouth can allow your other teeth to drift out of alignment and can accumulate food debris and plaque. A porcelain dental bridge placed by our dentists, Dr. Cynthia Becker and Dr. Cynthia Pistoia is an effective way to replace your missing teeth, but you need to take care of it for it to do its job well.
Be honest with the dentist when you get your bridge. If it is loose, tight, or uncomfortable, you should make sure that your tell dentist. A bridge that fits will work well and will be easy to clean. You need to brush and floss your teeth, including your bridge at twice a day. Even the best-fitting bridge will have places that will be hard to reach and could harbor bacteria, plaque and food debris. You should talk to our dentist about using an interdental brush, a water flosser, or a floss threader. You should also see our dentist for your regular appointments for cleanings and exams.
