Dr. designed and crafted your dental bridge out of durable materials meant to withstand the rigors of chewing food each day. If you suffer an accident or dental trauma that chips or cracks the bridge, you could be at risk of some rather serious consequences.

Even if the damage doesn’t cause you physical discomfort, you should not delay in calling 512-989-3300 to have it examined by your highly trained dentist. Any delay increases your chances of suffering significant complications.

You should not attempt to clean, brush, floss or manipulate any part of the damaged bridge. This could potentially damage one of the abutments that is anchoring the bridge in your mouth.

You can gently rinse away any blood or debris from an oral trauma with saltwater. Otherwise you should leave any other cleaning procedures to the professional training and techniques employed at our clinic.

If the abutments anchoring the bridge are still intact, Dr. might be able to replace the damaged bridge.

If you have recently chipped or damaged your dental bridge in Pflugerville, Texas, you should call 512-989-3300 as soon as possible to have it examined and treated at Planet Smile.
