The recementation of a dental bridge is a procedure that involves reattaching a bridge that has become loose or detached. This is typically done using dental cement or adhesive.

Assessment: The dentist will first assess the condition of the dental bridge and the supporting teeth. They will determine the reason for the bridge becoming loose and check for any damage.
Cleaning: The area around the bridge and the bridge itself will be cleaned to remove any debris, bacteria, or old cement. This ensures a clean surface for bonding.
Preparation: If needed, the dentist may prepare the supporting teeth by cleaning or roughening the surfaces to enhance the adhesion of the dental cement.
Adhesive Application: Dental cement or adhesive is applied to both the bridge and the prepared teeth.
Placement: The dentist carefully positions the bridge back onto the prepared teeth, making sure it fits securely.
Bite Check: The patient may be asked to bite down to ensure that the bridge is properly aligned, and the bite feels comfortable.
Excess Cement Removal: Any excess cement is removed, and final adjustments are made to ensure a proper fit and bite.
It’s important to note that the recementation process should be performed by a qualified dentist. If you have a loose or detached dental bridge, it’s crucial to seek professional dental care promptly to prevent further issues. Attempting to fix it yourself could lead to complications.
