A permanent solution to gaps in your smile
If you are missing one or more teeth, a bridge may be the perfect solution for you! Bridges are artificial teeth that are connected between two crowns. These crowns are permanently fixed onto your natural teeth and can last many years with proper care.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your bridge clean and healthy is to brush and floss regularly. It is important to brush twice a day for two minutes each time, and to floss once a day. When brushing your teeth, be sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and gentle circular motions. When flossing, be sure to use dental floss or an interdental cleaner that is designed specifically for bridges.
Another important thing to keep in mind when caring for your bridge is diet. Just like with natural teeth, sugary and acidic foods can cause damage to your bridge. Be sure to limit sugary snacks and drinks, and if you do eat or drink them, be sure to thoroughly clean your bridge afterwards. We have been building bridges in Peace River for years and we would love to help you with yours!
