Your dental bridge was created from special dental materials that are known to be very durable. It was installed in your mouth by Dr. Thomas Pierce with a special type of dental cement. This is intended to fully replicate your missing tooth with the same structural integrity.

Yet it is possible for something like an accidental blow to the mouth to cause significant trauma to the dental bridge or to the cement that holds it to the abutment teeth. If your dental bridge feels loose, or it has been fractured to any degree, you should not delay in having Dr. Thomas Pierce examine it.

While you’re waiting for your appointment, it’s best not to wiggle or play with the compromised dental bridge. Even a small amount of manipulation could contribute to significant complications.

If you have a little blood or other unwanted material in your mouth, you can gently rinse them away with a little lukewarm saltwater. Otherwise, you should not attempt to brush, floss, or clean any part of the compromised dental bridge. Any required cleaning measures should be left to our dentist and his team of professional technicians.

After he examines and assess the severity of the problem, Dr. Thomas Pierce can help you understand the most effective method for treating or replacing the compromised dental bridge.

If you are in the Marion, Arkansas, area and you have a loose dental bridge, you should not delay in calling 870-739-3256 to have it examined.
