When our Sunshine Dental Group team initially installed your dental bridge, it was intended to replace your missing tooth for a long time to come. Unfortunately, there are times when an oral injury can damage your bridge or the teeth that anchor it in your mouth.

If any part of your bridge is damaged, it will require your dentist’s attention. The longer you wait, the more likely you will experience serious complications.

If you have blood or debris in your mouth, you can rinse them away with lukewarm saltwater.

It’s important that you don’t play with or wiggle the bridge with your tongue or fingers. You also should not attempt to brush, floss or clean around the damaged bridge. The more you manipulate it, the more likely you are of causing trouble. Any cleaning should be left to Sunshine Dental Group’s highly trained staff of dental professionals.

With a bit of luck, your dentist, Dr. Jorge de la Osa, can replace the damaged bridge by cementing a new one in its place.

If your dental bridge in Commerce, California, is loosened or otherwise damaged, you should not delay in contacting Sunshine Dental Group at 323.266.2120 to schedule an appointment.
