After creating a fixed prosthetic that replaces lost teeth, it is necessary to take into account the basic hygiene to increase the lifespan and to prevent the accumulation of dental plaque, tartar and gum recession.
After insertion of the fixed prosthetic don’t eat for an hour and avoid solid foods for the next 24 hours. Due to fixation of the cement, you may experience increased sensitivity of the teeth for the initial 24 hours.
Bridges and crowns are to be maintained as well as natural teeth. Because of the nature of the fixed prosthetic construction, the fixed prosthetic devices, use interproximal (interdental) brushes to clean the spaces between the natural teeth and fixed prosthetic.
For teeth that are not covered with crowns or bridges use the softest (ultra soft) brush. Maintain basic hygiene at least twice a day.
It is required to report to the dentist if you notice that the gums are inflamed or if there is a fracture of the prosthetic work.
In patients who do not have any problems with the prosthetic device, only a yearly check-up is required.
