Yes with a floss threader.
Yes, you can!!
Yes, we can. We use ultrasonic instruments specifically designed to go under the bridge and clean all the retained plaque and calcified calculus.
To get under a dental bridge for adquate cleaning, use a Waterpik for powerful irrigation. You can also use a thin plastic floss threader to manipulate floss under your bridge tooth to clean tighter spaces that you might not be able to adequately irrigate.
