What can I use clean under a dental bridge?

Cleaning the dental bridge is important to prevent oral health complications like gum disease and tooth decay.

Using an interproximal brush (piksters) is an easy and a quite effective way in removing plaque and food traps.—just gently do a backward forward movement under the bridge to push away the plaque and food particles under the bridge.

Super Floss is another ideal dental product for cleaning crown and bridge.

Gently move the spongy floss between the gum and the base of the bridge, use a soft back-and-forth motion to remove plaque and food particles -under the false tooth. Then wrap the spongy floss around the real tooth at the other side of the bridge, slide up and down to clean the adjacent tooth surface.
