How do I care for dental bridges?

Dental bridges require the same regular and consistent home and professional dental care, as your natural teeth to prevent decay at the tooth-dental crown junction. The best home care tips are: Brush after eating and before bedtime using a soft toothbrush, especially where the bridge meets the gum line.  Floss at least once to twice a day.  Rinse with fluoride rinse before bed. (Do not swallow any rinse and do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes) Be careful about chewing hard sweets, gum, grainy rolls and tough food in this area and also see your dentist for regular professional check-ups and cleanings.
