There are those times when you suddenly realize you have some concerns, worries, thoughts, or uncertainty about your dental bridge. You may prefer to brush those worries aside or to try to look things up online to help you feel better but in the end, one thing will always turn out to be true: You’ll always end up needing to see our Ankeny, IA team for a final word on what’s going on with your dental work and oral health, whether you need anything from us, and how to best solve the problem. Let’s review a few of those common concerns that should direct you straight to our practice!
#1: When You’re Having Hygiene Issues
When you’re dealing with dental hygiene issues related to your dental bridge, the best thing you can do for yourself is to check in with our team about it. You don’t want to pretend that things are fine. If you do, you may allow food to remain trapped, plaque and tartar to build up, or you may simply make your life harder than it has to be. Always set aside time for a checkup if you’re having a problem, so we can offer the information you need (and possibly the repair) to make it better, to protect your oral health, and to make your smile care as easy as it should be.
#2: When It Doesn’t Feel The Same
You know what your smile feels like. It’s because you use it every day and generally speaking, it doesn’t send up any major red flags. However, when something changes, then your smile feels different. You could feel like your bridge just doesn’t fit like it usually does. You might feel like your teeth don’t fit together the same way. Your dental bridge may seem loose to you. Whatever the change is, remember that changes with your smile are not something you can fix. However, they are something we can easily fix and that we like to fix ASAP. So, come see us!
#3: When You Think You Damaged It
Now, beyond the “there might be something wrong with my dental bridge” feeling is that near certainty that you’ve damaged it. How do you know? Maybe you bit into something hard and you felt a bad feeling or heard a sound. When you have the strong sense that you are in need of a repair or you possibly hurt your smile, call our team as soon as you can. We can help with the bridge and your teeth, so you’re back in business in nothing flat!
