Did you just improve your oral health and boost the appearance of your smile with a dental bridge in Woodland Hills, California? If so, good for you! Now it’s time to start taking care of it.

If you take good care of your dental bridge, then there is a high chance that it will last for many years to come. So, to help you keep your bridge in tip-top shape, our Couture Smiles Dental Group team encourages you to do the following things:

-Brush, floss, and rinse: Oral hygiene is vital for your smile and dental bridge, which is why you need to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. As you do these things, make sure you use tools and products that have been approved by the American Dental Association.

-Attend your dental checkups: It’s very important to attend your dental checkups every six months. This is vital because the treatment involved is the only treatment that can completely eliminate plaque and tartar from your smile, which helps decrease your chances of having gum disease. Your dental checkup is also a great time for your dentist, Dr. Armen Terteryan, to fix any problems with your dental bridge if necessary.

-Be mindful of where you chew: Oftentimes, your dental bridge can’t quite handle tough or chewy foods. So, to help you keep your bridge in tip-top shape, it’s best to avoid chewing sticky or hard foods with your restoration.
