What is a Bridge?

A bridge is an excellent way to replace missing teeth and restore stability to your mouth. A dental bridge is attached to the teeth next to the open space from your missing tooth or teeth. Those teeth act as supports. Your teeth are prepared and impressions are made of your mouth. Your bridge is carefully crafted and fit to your teeth.

A bridge is a good way to restore your beautiful smile!

How to care for your Bridge:

  1. Avoid chewing until the numbness has worn off completely.
  2. Brushing and flossing. Dr. Kearns may recommend special floss, brushing and cleaning aids, as it is important to keep your bridge bacteria free.
  3. To reduce discomfort, rinse your mouth three times a day with warm salt water. Your gums may be sore for a few days, this is normal.
  4. Call us if sensitivity persists, you experience discomfort or an uneven bite.
