What to Do if a Dental Bridge Breaks

A bridge is a special type of restoration that replaces multiple consecutive missing teeth. It is secured with a crown on each adjacent tooth and has one or more false teeth in the middle to bridge the gap. A bridge can crack or break the same way a tooth can, often due to hard food or trauma. The most important thing to do when your dental bridge breaks is to keep calm and call our office.

If a bridge has been damaged or come loose, it can leave the exposed tooth vulnerable to damage or infection. If the damage is minor, we may be able to repair it with dental bonding. If that is not sufficient, we can provide a full temporary bridge that will fit securely and comfortably. We will also thoroughly clean the area, so there is no bacteria trapped under the bridge.

Emergency Care When You Need it Most

Obtaining emergency dental care is essential for several reasons. There are situations where a tooth can be saved if treated early, and damaging infections can be stopped. Additionally, it is important to get the pain that often comes with an emergency under control quickly.

A good rule of thumb is if it’s painful, it is a dental emergency. Call JH Emergency Dental in San Antonio to get the treatment you need swiftly and relieve pain. Call us today!
