Did you know that dentists can choose between three basic procedures to replace a missing tooth? Your dentist has the option of installing a dental bridge, a dental implant, or inserting of removable appliance. Dr. Viral Turakhia of My Dentist in Mumbai, India, believes that dental bridges are the most popular choice, and with good reason.
Dental bridges are composed of two crowns, also known as caps, with a false tooth affixed between them. The crowns or camps are attached to the teeth or on either side of a place where you're missing a tooth and have an empty tooth socket.
Benefits of Bridges
There are three different types of dental bridges, but all offer a variety of benefits, including:
The three different types of dental bridges include traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bonded bridges. What's the difference?
A traditional bridge involves developing a crown or implant for your teeth located on either side of the missing tooth or empty socket space. A pontic is located in between those two crowns. Made of either porcelain, ceramics or metal, traditional bridges are the most common type chosen by dental patients.
A cantilever bridge is used when teeth are present on only one side of a missing tooth or section of teeth, and Maryland bonded bridges, also known as a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland Bridge, is a metal framework that supports gums and plastic teeth. On either side of the bridge, metal wings are bonded to existing teeth on either side of the missing tooth socket.
A number of brands for bridges are available, but Dr. Turakhia prefers Zircon bridges for a variety of reasons. Zircon bridges come with dental laboratory warranties for up to five years and have much lower instances of fracturing than other bridges. They're strong, have a long life, and are processed in a special manner.
Choosing Zircon bridges for full mouth restoration and rehabilitation has become more popular as a solution to those who have put off the dental care. Gum disease, tooth damage, or poor oral care or tooth and jaw structure requires oral rehabilitation for adequate eating and speaking as well as appearance. Zircon bridges offer longevity, and peace of mind.
Growing numbers of individuals are traveling to India for their dental needs, due not only to excellent facilities and experience such as that Dr. Turakhia provides, but because of affordability.
Zircon crowns in bridges offer you that beautiful smile you've been missing. With a more natural and transparent-like appearance, Zircon bridges are nearly impossible to distinguish after matching with your remaining teeth. Made of zirconium oxide, Zircon dental implants are not only an excellent choice for biting resistance and aesthetics, but are also effective in replacing your back teeth, where grinding and chewing resistance is essential.
Zircon crowns don't contain metals, and their color and transparency can be matched perfectly with your natural teeth. In addition, they're biocompatible, lightweight, and especially strong, able to hold up under high force grinding and biting.
