While it’s rare, there are certain things that can weaken the dental adhesive bond holding your bridgework in your mouth. This could come in the form of a blow to the face or as side effects from chronic periodontal disease. Even if a loose bridge doesn’t cause you immediate pain, you should still not delay in seeking urgent dental care at Dr. Jorge Bastidas’s Paterson, New Jersey, clinic.

It’s important to keep a few things in mind while you wait for your appointment with Dr. Jorge Bastidas. Minimizing undue complications can help improve your treatment options.

You should never try cleaning or playing with the loosened bridge. If you have blood or debris in your mouth from an accident, you can rinse them away with lukewarm salt water. Any other necessary cleaning should be left to Dr. Jorge Bastidas and his highly trained staff.

If chronic periodontal disease has allowed bacteria access to the base of the abutments, it could loosen their direct relationship with the structures of their sockets. This can sometimes cause pain, heightened sensitivity and general discomfort when chewing food.

If you live in the Paterson, New Jersey, area and you have a loose-feeling bridge, you should call 973-742-2610 to seek professional attention at Comfort Dental Care’s dental office.
