What are the chances of a #bridge falling out? #DrSoftTouch

Hello there,
There are a few factors that could cause a bridge to come out.  It's possible that the adhesive used to permanently cement the bridge could fail, decay develops underneath the bridge or the supporting teeth fracture. To help prevent these problems, I would recommend seeing your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings and maintaining good home care. Consult with an experienced cosmetic dentist to determine your options. Be sure to look at before and after photos when choosing your dentist. This will give you a pretty accurate idea of how your teeth will look in the end. Good luck and I hope this info helps you. Follow me if you have more questions.
