Your dental bridge was custom crafted out of durable, artificial materials. However, it is possible for a blow to the face or other accident to chip or damage the bridge. If this happens, you need to call OC Smiles Solutions at 949.558.0111 to have it examined and treated.

If you can’t immediately reach us, there are a few basic first-aid considerations to help you manage the damaged dental bridge in Laguna Niguel, California.

You can gently rinse the area with salt water if you have blood or debris in your mouth. Any other attempts at cleaning the damaged bridge should be left to your dentist, Dr. Sean Thompson, and his highly skilled team.

If at all possible, you should try to avoid eating. If you need to eat something, try to stick to soft foods, and don’t chew on the side of your mouth that has the bridge. The more you manipulate a damaged bridge, the more likely you are to damage the bridge or one of the abutments.

If any part of your bridge or abutments are damaged, you should not delay in calling our office to have it examined and repaired to prevent complications.
