Your dentist, Dr. David Cho, designed your dental bridge out of very durable materials. However, there are still rare instances that can cause a chip or fracture in a bridge. This is even more likely to occur if you participate in a contact sport without wearing a mouthguard or if you have a bad habit of nibbling on pens and pencils.

If any part of your bridge is chipped, fractured or damaged in any way, you should not delay in contacting Alpha Dental Spa to have it repaired. 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 incur complications.

If you have blood or debris in your mouth, you can rinse it away with lukewarm saltwater. Otherwise, you should leave any required cleaning treatments to the professional tools and techniques used by your dentist, Dr. David Cho.

If both abutments anchoring the bridge are still intact, your dentist might be able to replace the damaged bridge and cement a new one in its place.

If you have a chipped or otherwise damaged dental bridge in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, you should not delay in calling 856-829-1989 to have it examined and repaired at Alpha Dental Spa.
