Flossing with Dental Bridge Miami - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

Miami area dentist describes flossing with dental bridges

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental encourage patients to take proper care of their smile. For some with restorations such as dental implants and dental bridges, there may need to be a few extra steps taken to ensure they stay healthy and beautiful. Some patients may used dental implants to hold up dental bridges to replace one or more teeth in a row, but this doesn’t mean the care and attention doesn’t stop there. In fact, our dental team at Miami Modern Dental will educate patients on how to properly care for their new bridges, including brushing and flossing techniques.

Dental bridges are restorations made of porcelain that are fabricated to replace missing teeth. They use the adjacent teeth from the dental arch to support the bridge so that it can stay firmly in place. Bridges are a more permanent option when compared to partial dentures, which snap into place with a metal framework and can be taken in and out for care. Bridges can be used with or without dental implants, depending on the patient’s unique situation and what is necessary to maintain the smile’s function and aesthetics.

Dental bridges are constructed in a way that leaves a gap between the false tooth and the gum tissue. Food particles can get trapped here, and can result in the development of cavities and periodontal disease on the teeth underneath the dental crown. This is exactly why Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. will educate patients on how to properly floss and brush their bridges after placement to ensure they keep their smile healthy and avoid the progression of any conditions such as this. Dental health is so important when patients are dealing with restorations such as these, as it can make or break the smile.

If you reside in or around the area of Miami and want to speak to a professional dental team about restorations such as implants and bridges, Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. encourage you to book an appointment at Miami Modern Dental for an initial examination and consultation appointment.
