Removing a (stubborn) multi-unit temporary bridge:
1. Cut 2 pieces of dental floss 12-16 inches
2. Using a floss threader thread each piece of floss through the pontic area of the bridge with one piece of floss at one end and the other at the other end.
3. Wrap the floss around the handle of the mouth mirror, protecting the opposing arch gently give a tug.
