What Do I Do if My Dental Bridge Feels Loose?

If you have a dental bridge or you’re thinking about restoring one or more missing teeth with a bridge, you may be wondering what you should do if your bridge ever becomes loose. What does it mean, and do you need to see your dentist? The team at Peninsula Dental Excellence is here for you and is always happy to answer any questions you may have.


There are a few common reasons that your bridge may start to feel loose, such as the following: 


If your bridge feels loose for any reason, you need to get help from Dr. Colin Au and the team at Peninsula Dental Excellence right away. The sooner you get treatment and have your bridge re-attached, the sooner you can get back to your day-to-day life.

A loose bridge is a dental emergency. We can restore your smile and your bridge with a same-day appointment. Give us a call at (650) 968-9186 to schedule your appointment, and see Dr. Colin Au to have your bridge re-attached.

While you wait for your appointment, do your best to avoid moving the bridge around. Do not attempt to move, clean around, or further loosen your dental bridge. If you move the bridge excessively, you could cause further damage to the bridge or to your abutment teeth.


If you have a loose bridge in Mountain View, don’t wait to get treatment. You need to seek help immediately from a dentist like Dr. Colin Au. So don’t wait. Contact us at (650) 968-9186 for a same-day appointment, or feel free to stop by our office at 1704 Miramonte Avenue Suite 4 Mountain View CA, 94040.
