Maintenance of your bridge
If you take good care of your bridge, it should last about 10 years, maybe longer. As with natural teeth, you should brush your bridge and floss daily. Your dental hygienist will show you how to use a threader to floss under the bridge, and around the teeth that support the bridge. Regular dental checkups and professional cleanings are also important.
Your dentist may also recommend an implant to replace the missing tooth.
