Until you get used to chewing with your new dental bridge avoid hard foods and taking large bites. Be sure to avoid really sugary foods because they contribute to plaque building which will allow for unwanted bacteria to buildup on your bridge.
The better you take care of your teeth, the longer your bridge will last. You do not have to do anything outside of normal care for you teeth. Just make sure practicing consistent daily tooth care. This includes brushing and flossing your teeth as well as dental check ups and cleanings every six months.
A dental bridge can replace can one tooth or as many as three missing teeth that sit next to each other on either side.
Your bridge can last as many as 15 years or even longer if taken care of properly. While we cant guarantee you a length of time that your dental bridge will last, they are built for long term use.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental prosthetic, meaning, that it cannot be removed. It cannot be removed because it is bonded to your teeth. If you are looking for a removable option then you might want to consider dentures instead.
