A Bridge That Feels Loose Requires Immediate Care

Posted .

Dental bridges are always installed in place using a very strong dental-grade adhesive. This will give the dental restorations the strength to last for many long years ahead. Yet there are still some times when complications from periodontal disease or a dental trauma can come to affect this strong bond. Should any part of your dental bridge feel loose or become damaged, you should not delay in seeking immediate care at Madison Dental Spa.

While waiting for your appointment at our clinic, you should avoid playing with the dental bridge. If you have blood or debris in your mouth from a dental trauma, you can rinse them away with lukewarm saltwater. Any other cleaning procedures should be left to Dr. Moumen Almouzayn and our highly trained staff.

If periodontal disease has caused a failure in the dental adhesive, your dentist might be able to cement it back into place. If an abutment has been damaged in any way, or if it has suffered a fracture at the gumline, more advanced treatment might be called for. This could potentially include performing a root canal.

If you live in the Madison, Connecticut, area and you have a dental bridge that is in distress, you should call 203.245.5101 to schedule an appointment at Madison Dental Spa.
