I am wearing a temporary 4 tooth front upper bridge. My gums were o.k. until they worked on me getting ready for making the final bridge. The girl pushed on my gums inserting a cord several days ago and my gums are puffy
There was a tiny single strand of cotton? It felt like a piece of sewing thread...very short piece after the girl removed the cord. I noticed this when I got home and was able to get it off but there might be more caught up there. I am calling the Dental office tomorrow. Thanks.
After having dental bridges anchored in place, you have a fairly rare chance of coming down with ptyalism, an annoying but relatively harmless potential side effect of the procedure. If the crowns surrounding the bridge or the bridge itself is in contact with the Partoid gland, it will react to the pressure by producing excess saliva.
