How do I care for my new bridges?

Brush your bridges like you did your natural teeth. Toothbrush and toothpaste, 3 times a day; 2 minutes total brushing time. Electronic toothbrush is highly recommended.
Waterpik after 1 wk of receiving your bridges. During those 7 days without your waterpik, you will use the rotary brush that were provided by our office to clean under your bridges. Dip the proxy brush in your prescription rinse instead of using toothpaste on it. After a week you may start using your waterpik. Use your waterpik after each meal if possible, and if not; be sure to use it in the morning, and before you go to bed at night. Keep in mind that if you do not waterpik daily, food will accumulate under your bridges, causing plaque build up and tartar on your implant abutments. A portable waterpik is recommended, so you can easily travel with it on the go.
