Question 5: Food remains under the fixed bridge?

It can happen that parts of food are occasionally retained under the temporary bridge because of the small space as is necessary to heal the gums. Once the healing process the bridge is readjusted. The permanent bridge is much closer to the gums, and is much more difficult restraining food pieces under it.
We recommend using the Water Pik on the permanent bridge, most of the classic indicated floss, because of lack of space.
