A Chipped or Damaged Bridge Needs to Be Repaired

Posted .

Dr. Jeff DeMercy and Amanda Kossick made your dental bridge in Roswell, Georgia, highly durable so it could handle the test of time and the rigors of biting and chewing. As strong and sturdy as your bridge is, there are still rare instances when something can chip or otherwise damage it. If this happens, you should not delay in seeing Dr. Jeff DeMercy and Amanda Kossick to have it examined and treated.

While you are waiting for your appointment, there are a few things to keep in mind to help you minimize complications.

You should not attempt to clean, brush, floss or manipulate any part of the damaged bridge. The more you touch it, the more likely you are to cause further damage or complications.

If you have blood or debris in your mouth, you can rinse them away with lukewarm saltwater. Otherwise, you should leave any and all cleaning procedures to your dentist’s professional training and techniques.

If both of the abutments anchoring the bridge are still intact, Dr. Jeff DeMercy and Amanda Kossick might be able to replace the damaged bridge with a new one.

If you have a chipped or otherwise damaged bridge, you should not delay in calling DeMercy Dental at 770.641.8010 to seek timely treatment.
