If you’ve recently improved the health and appearance of a tooth with a dental bridge in West Jordan, UT, then it’s time to start taking care of it. If you keep your bridge in tip-top shape, then it can last for many years. So, to help you do so, our Jordan Landing Smiles dental team recommends that you do the following things:
-Brush, floss, and rinse: For a top-notch dental bridge, you need to keep up on oral hygiene. You can do so by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing daily. Generally, people like to brush every morning and every night. At night, they immediately floss and rinse after brushing. However, it does not matter what time you floss or rinse your smile.
-Attend your dental checkups: It’s vital to attend your dental checkups with your dentist, Dr. Powell, because the treatment involved is the only way to completely eliminate the plaque and tartar from your smile, keeping gum disease far away from your teeth and bridge. Your dental checkup is also a great time for your dentist to examine your dental bridge and fix any problems if necessary.
-Be mindful of where you chew: Your dental bridge isn’t as strong as your natural teeth, so it’s important to avoid chewing with your bridge when you eat tough or sticky foods.
