Dentist near Daly City explains the best way to care for a dental bridge

Best Dental Bridge Care from Daly City dentist

A dental bridge, which is made using a crown for the tooth on each side of the gap and an artificial tooth fused between them, can restore the smile with natural looking, long lasting results. Several types of dental bridges are available, and they can be made from porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of materials. With proper care, a bridge can last 10 years or longer.

Dr. Leo Arellano and his team help people in San Francisco, Daly City, and the surrounding areas choose the best style and materials for their specific needs, and explain how to care for their bridges to help them enjoy maximum comfort and longevity of their restorations.

Dental bridge care

  • Maintain optimal oral health – It is even more important to keep the remaining teeth healthy and strong by maintaining excellent oral hygiene practices. Brushing after meals, flossing daily, and making regular dental visits are crucial to protect the teeth supporting the bridge.
  • Clean under the artificial tooth – It is important that food debris, plaque, and bacteria be removed from under the artificial tooth. A floss threader, oral irrigator, interproximal brush, or a combination of these aids can make it possible to clean under the bridge. It is also essential that the teeth anchoring the bridge receive careful attention to ensure plaque does not build up around the supporting crowns.
  • To prevent damage to the bridge, avoid chewing on hard substances such as ice or fruit pits.
  • Eat a healthy diet – Proper nutrition is essential to oral health as well as overall health.

Temporary bridge care

During the time a temporary bridge is worn, a few extra steps in care are necessary.

  • Floss very carefully to avoid dislodging the bridge as it is secured with a soft temporary cement
  • Avoid richly colored foods and beverages, as the resin is susceptible to staining
  • Use alcohol free mouth rinses
  • If the temporary bridge becomes loose, call Dr. Arellano immediately

Dr. Leo Arellano and his team are partners in dental health with their patients. They are happy to answer questions, recommend products and devices, and demonstrate proper techniques to help patients enjoy optimal oral health and longevity of their dental work.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
