Dental bridges are typically cemented onto their anchoring abutments with a strong dental grade adhesive. This is intended to fully restore your missing tooth for many years to come.

Unfortunately, there are times when oral hygiene complications or severe dental trauma can weaken the dental cement holding your dental bridge in place. If your dental bridge feels loose, you should not delay in seeking treatment from an experienced dentist like Dr. Shay Markovitch.

While you’re waiting for your appointment 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 another 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. Shay Markovitch.

After he examines and assess the severity of the problem, Dr. Shay Markovitch can help you understand the most effective method for treating or repairing the loose dental bridge.
