Does a dental bridge require special care?
While dental bridges are permanent and chew like natural teeth, they do need some special care to keep them healthy and functional. Because the units of a bridge are all fixed together they cannot be flossed like a natural tooth. They require the patient to use a Dental Floss Threader to thread floss underneath the bridge for cleaning daily. While a great, strong solution for a missing tooth, if a Bridge is not cared for it will develop a cavity underneath requiring replacement of the entire bridge.
