What You Need to Know about Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns, which are also called “caps”, are used by dentists to save a damaged tooth and preserve whatever functionality it still has left, especially if the root is still intact. These caps are then placed over a decayed or broken natural tooth to prevent further damage.
Dental bridges, on the other hand, are used to replace missing teeth by placing a non-removable prosthesis on the remaining teeth. In most cases bridges are done by creating a crown for the teeth surrounding the missing tooth and placing a replacement in the middle, where the false tooth bridges the gap between the natural teeth.
There are different types of dental bridges in Chandler AZ, which includes the removable and fixed bridge. A removable bridge can be detached whenever it is necessary or if the user feels like it. You should get a removable bridge when:
- the adjacent teeth are too weak to support dental crowns
- you have more than one missing teeth
- there is no posterior teeth that can serve as the bridge’s anchor
- A fixed bridge, on the contrary is permanently placed on the teeth through crowns or bonding, which provides better stability.
If you are unsure what type best fits your case, Dr. Rahimi will be more than happy to explain to you the options and help you determine what is best for your specific dental care needs as well as your budget.
If you want to get the dental crowns Chandler dentists are offering to their patients, then you need to keep in mind that getting a bridge to cover your missing tooth requires at least two or more visits. An impression of your teeth is taken and then the teeth next to the space where you lost your teeth are polished and filed and covered with a temporary crown. The bridges will then be placed on the succeeding visits.
Bridges often last for five to seven years on an average, although if you do not take good care of it, the supporting teeth may develop cavities, so make sure you floss, brush, and rinse your teeth regularly.
