Dental bridges are prosthetics that cover the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. Bridges can restore your confidence by improving your appearance and helping you eat and talk better. They are available in different types of materials like porcelain, metal, or alloys.

How to Care for Dental Bridges

Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine is the best way to care for your bridges. Make sure to follow ADA-approved dental hygiene practices to help your bridges last longer and to maintain your overall dental health.

Here are a few tips on taking care of your dental bridges:

  • Brush and Floss Everyday

Our dentists recommend all our patients brush twice a day and floss every day. This helps get rid of the plaque and tartar buildup in your mouth and keeps you free of cavities and other dental ailments.

Use a soft-bristled brush, fluoride toothpaste, and a flossing thread or water flosser to clean effectively.

  • Consume a Balanced Diet

Eating a balanced diet is just as essential as brushing and flossing every day. Avoid eating or drinking foods that contain a lot of sugar, such as desserts, sports drinks, and other artificially sweetened beverages.

Create a habit of consuming fibrous fruits and vegetables like apples, bananas, oranges, potatoes, broccoli, and carrots.

  • Get Regular Dental Cleanings

Getting your teeth cleaned professionally once or twice a year helps minimize the onset of oral health conditions. We recommend you visit our experts at Stockton Creative Dental in Stockton, California, regularly for dental check-ups and cleanings.

Bridges are an effective and affordable solution to replace your missing teeth, restore your ability to speak normally, maintain your facial structure, and prevent your teeth from moving out of place.
