Dental Bridges in Concord, NH

Once you get a comfortable dental bridge fitted, you can expect to chew, eat, and speak properly. The proper after-care can help your dental bridges stay durable and functional for a number of years.

The dentist will fix the dental bridge in two to three visits, and once the bridge is secure, you need to brush under the artificial teeth to keep it clean. Food can get stuck under the tooth or between the teeth and cause decay. With proper, regular care, dental bridges can last as long as ten years or more.

How to Care for Your Dental Bridge

By following these simple but effective tips, you can prolong the lifespan of your dental bridge and stay comfortable:

  • Brush twice a day with your regular or deep-cleaning toothpaste as you would with your natural teeth.
  • Make sure you floss once a day under the false tooth and also between your natural teeth. Patients can either use floss or a proxy-brush (also called inter-dental brush) that can clean in the tiny nooks and crannies between teeth. Please ask our staff for more information about recommended dental products.
  • Remember to eat a diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and fiber, and minimize the consumption of sweets, candies, and sticky desserts.
  • Visit Concord Dental Associates in Concord, NH for regular exams and checkups.

What You Should Know About Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is called a bridge as it’s anchored by two teeth (called abutments) on either side. When professionally fitted, a dental bridge should allow you to chew and bite just as your natural teeth would.

Ignoring a gap in your teeth may lead to bacteria accumulating in the gap and cause halitosis or bad breath. Our expert dental team constructs dental bridges in different ways (depending on where the missing tooth is located) to suit the needs of our patients. For the front teeth, for example, the dentist may select a resin-bonded dental bridge.
