Dental bridges are designed to last for ten years and more but this lifespan can often be severely shortened by lack of proper maintenance. Once properly fitted and bedded in, a dental bridge looks and feels like natural teeth. The bridge can be looked after in the same way with a few additional measures to ensure the best possible condition is maintained.
– Brush teeth with fluoride toothpaste
– Have teeth regularly cleaned by a dentist
– The bridge should be regularly assessed
These basic measures also aid in the “prevention of gingivitis and periodontitis” and more information can be found at https://www.news-medical.net/news/20170922/Care-for-Dental-Bridges.aspx.
