Your dental bridge that was designed and installed at Lake City Family Dental Center, PA was created from durable materials. However, it is not invulnerable to all forms of oral trauma. If you suffer a hard blow to the face or if you have a bad habit of using your teeth as tools, there is a chance you could potentially chip or damage the bridge.

In a situation like this, you should not delay in calling 386.752.1342 to seek professional care for your damaged bridge. Any procrastination increases your chances of suffering even more significant complications.

While you await your timely appointment, there are a few things to keep in mind to help you manage the problem.

If you have blood or debris in your mouth from an oral accident, you can gently rinse your mouth clean with a little lukewarm saltwater. Any other necessary cleaning procedures should be left to the professional tools and training used by Dr. Reeve Abraben and his highly trained staff.

It’s best to avoid eating. If you need to eat something, try to stick to soft foods and don’t chew on that side of your mouth. The more you manipulate a damaged bridge, the more likely you are to damage one of the abutments.

If you live in the Lake City, Florida, area and you have suffered a damaged bridge, you need to call 386.752.1342 to seek professional care at Lake City Family Dental Center, PA.
