Dr. Jason and Jean Larsen installed your dental bridge to replace your missing tooth. It was cemented onto the two anchoring abutments with a strong dental adhesive. This is meant to replicate the strength and basic function of your original tooth.

Unfortunately, there are rare instances where an oral trauma or oral hygiene problems can weaken the dental cement holding your dental bridge in place. If your dental bridge feels loose, you should not delay in calling 972-535-8376 to have it examined by Dr. Jason and Jean Larsen.

While you’re waiting for your appointment there are a few things you can do to reduce your chances of suffering additional complications.

It’s best not to wiggle or play with the loose dental bridge. Even a small amount of manipulation could potentially cause significant damage to one of the abutments.

If a blow to the face or other form of oral trauma has left blood or other unwanted material in your mouth you can gently rinse the area with saltwater. Otherwise, you should not attempt to brush, floss, or clean any part of the loose dental bridge. This has the potential to cause significant damage and complications. Any required cleaning measures should be left to the professional tools and techniques used by Dr. Jason and Jean Larsen.

After a quick assessment Dr. Jason and Jean Larsen can help you understand the most effective method for treating or repairing the loose dental bridge. If you are in the Murphy, Texas, area and you have a loose dental bridge, you should not delay in calling 972-535-8376 to have it examined at Parkside Dental.
