What to Do If Your Dental Bridge Comes LooseIf you have a dental bridge or you are thinking of getting one, you may want to know what to do if it ever becomes loose. Dental bridges are delicate dental appliances that need proper care lest they become loose or damaged. In case your bridges become loose, there are several things you should do.

What You Should Do

If your dental bridge feels loose for any reason, you should get help from us right away. The sooner you get loose dentures fixed, the better your chances of saving them. Always treat a loose denture as a dental emergency. This is because continued use of a damaged denture can damage your gums and affect their functionality. Visiting our offices immediately, you notice a loose dental bridge will enable us to restore your smile with a one-time appointment. However, before you reach our offices, avoid moving your bridge at all costs. Also, you should not attempt to clean around or further loosen the damaged bridge. This is because any of those activities will increase the risk of damaging your abutment teeth or the bridge itself.

Causes of a Loose Dental Bridge

One of the most common causes of a loose bridge is a decay of the abutment tooth. If you fail to take care of your teeth, gums, and bridges, this will lead to decay to the teeth supporting the bridge. When the abutment tooth decays, it breaks down, loosening the cement used to attach the bridge. This makes your bridge start to wiggle and feel loose. Advanced tooth decay can lead to a total loss of a dental bridge, making it important to visit our offices for dental checks regularly. Early detection of decay will restore your tooth and make it easy to reattach your dental bridge. Visit our offices for more information on the importance of taking care of your dental bridges.
