Home After Care - Bridges
After receiving your new bridge, make sure you take care of it by following these simple directions:
If an anesthetic was used to perform your procedure, try not to chew any food or gum until the numbness has ended.
Carefully brush around your bridge to keep it clean.
Take your medications or antibiotics (if prescribed) as stated.
Rinse your mouth with salt water 3 times a day to reduce swelling.
You will most likely have discomfort for a few days after your procedure, however if your bridge becomes loose or your sensitivity or pain increases, please call our office with your concerns.
