Posted on 7/7/2020 by Dr. Castellon
When it comes to dental bonds, people have a number of thoughts in their mind and they often wonder whether or not this bond will actually last long or whether they will need to replace it as soon as it is placed in the mouth. If you have questions with regards to dental bonds, then the most important thing that you need to understand is that when you maintain your dental bonds effectively, not only will they last longer but they will also prove to be highly beneficial and functional. One of the best things about dental bonds is that they won't break your bank and when you have a small dental problem, it definitely makes a lot of sense to opt-in for this solution rather than choose something that is more expensive.
Maintenance Is Important
Like all dental procedures, it is highly recommended that you maintain your gentle bonds effectively. In order for you to do this, one of the best things that you should always keep in mind is to visit us on a regular basis to ensure that you have clean teeth and there are no problems with the bond whatsoever. You should also avoid picking and prodding at the bond. A lot of people have the habit of trying to move the tongue around the bond just see how it feels because it's not natural. While you may be curious to do this, it is highly recommended that it is avoided because it could create unnecessary friction, and this could move the bond.
The bond does take a little time to get settled and when you start to move your tongue around it, it will loosen and come off. When you maintain a bond well it can last up to 10 years and there isn't much that you need to avoid except the fact that you should maintain good oral hygiene and ensure that you don't interfere with the bond too much.
