Cleaning A Bridge

Dentist Pasadena Texas: Cleaning a Bridge

Old fashioned bridges often fail due to recurrent decay. When this happens the bridge has to be cut off, the decay removed and a new bridge made. Because the teeth are fused together it is vital to properly clean underneath the bridge. Using a floss threader helps you get the floss underneath the bridge. Old fashioned bridges are very prone to failure. The anchor teeth are prone to needing root canal treatment.  A dental implant is a far superior treatment method as it is the longest lasting and most conservative way to restore a missing tooth.
