A Chipped or Fractured Bridge Needs Treatment and Repair

Posted .

Dr. Maria Sese typically designed a dental bridge with very durable materials, yet there are some rare occasions when an external force can potentially chip or fracture a bridge. This is even more likely to occur if you participate in sports without the protection of a mouthguard or you regularly use your teeth as tools.

Any damage to your bridge could result in significant complications. Timely attention at our clinic will reduce your chances of suffering extraneous complications.

While you are waiting for your appointment, there are a few basic first-aid considerations to help you manage the damaged dental bridge in Jersey City, New Jersey.

You can gently rinse the area with saltwater if you have blood or debris in your mouth from an accident. Any other cleaning procedures should be left to the highly trained specialists at East Coast Family Dental.

If you need to eat while you’re waiting for your appointment, try to avoid eating on that side of your mouth. Also, try to stick to eating soft foods. The more you manipulate a damaged bridge, the more likely you are to further damage the bridge or one of the abutments.

If you have a chipped or otherwise damaged bridge, you should not delay in calling 201-332-4699 to have it examined and treated at East Coast Family Dental.
