How can I look after my bridge?
Your permanent dental bridge should last 5-10 years with good care. Taking good care of your teeth and gums by brushing and flossing every day and following a healthy diet will help to prevent problems such as tooth decay and gum disease that can cause a dental bridge to fail.
While your temporary dental bridge is in place, we recommend that you avoid overly hard, crunchy or sticky foods, as these could cause it to become damaged or dislodged.
What are the risks?
Fitting a dental bridge is a non-invasive procedure, so there shouldn't be any risk of infection.
The teeth on either side may feel more sensitive after being prepared for crowns, but this should go away within a few days or weeks.
If you have any unexpected symptoms, you should make an appointment with our dentists.
