Your dental bridge restoration is just like your natural teeth. This means you need to clean and care for it regularly to keep it in tip-top shape. If you clean and care for your dental bridge, there is a better chance it can restore your smile and oral health for a longer period of time. To help you care for your restoration, our dentist, Dr. Paul Agyekum, encourages you to do the following things:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s best to brush your teeth every morning and night, floss once a day, and rinse with mouthwash once a day. As you do these things, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss that is easy to use, and antibacterial mouthwash. Oral hygiene can help you keep your bridge clean and strong and can also help you keep dental issues at bay.
-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.
