Dental bridge care is more or less similar to regular oral hygiene for gum and teeth care.  The patient should still be regularly brushing and flossing as well as regularly seeing the practitioner for examination and professional cleaning.  It is not any more difficult to deal with dental bridge care, although some people might think it is, initially.  All the patient needs for this, in addition to regular oral hygiene tools, is one special tool, and he can choose that from two of them.  One is something known as super floss, which has a stiff end for threading under the device, and then has a fuzzy part for removing plaque in order to assist with dental bridge care.  The other one is a floss threader, where the user pokes the floss he is about to use through the loop on the tool, and then the tool is pulled under the bridge in order to clean.  Temporary work might need extra caution because the device can be loosened, but if something does come undone, it can be simple enough to put it back on.

There are some things patients should avoid in their diet as well.  Hard foods should be off the list, and hard candy should not be chewed.  Ice chewing, too, can cause damage to the teeth and should be avoided.

Teeth grinding can cause wear and damage to the teeth, and patients should do what they can to minimize this including getting a sleep guard if the grinding happens in their sleep.  Following these guidelines can help with dental bridge care and keeping a mouth healthy.
