Crowns and Bridges


Well, a crown indicates the visible part of the tooth in the mouth.Crowns and Bridges
When the natural crown part of a teeth gets deformed or damaged to a certain level that it cannot be reconstructed by filling, an artificial crown is recommended. The artificial crowns are fixed to the teeth with help of adhesive dental cements. The artificial crowns will function as a natural crown in both appearance and  in chewing food.The artificial crowns are  Acrylic crowns, Ceramic crowns, Metal crowns and Zirconium crowns, Gold crowns [see images]

Bridge is a type of artificial missing tooth replacement system. Usually a bridge is made by  a horizontal component supported by two vertical component,  like wise the missing tooth  [crown]will be replaced by supporting the adjacent natural teeth [see photo]. A single teeth replacement bridge will have three crowns. The number of supporting teeth [crowns] may  increase in replacing multiple missing teeth.Bridge in which the replaced tooth is in-between two normal teeth is called a normal bridge and bridge in which the replaced tooth is supported by natural teeth in only one side is called a cantilever  bridge.The above said bridges are fixed and one more bridge is there called a Precision attachment bridge which is a semi fixed bridge, [see photo] it can be used as a fixed  bridge but can be removed for cleaning.The Bridges are ACRYLIC BRIDGE, CERAMIC BRIDGE , METAL BRIDGE,ZIRCONIUM BRIDGE and GOLD BRIDGE.

.8.How should I take care of my crowns?
To prevent damaging or fracturing the crowns, avoid chewing hard foods, avoid teeth grinding, ice or other hard objects.

Besides visiting your dentist and brushing twice a day, cleaning between your teeth is vital with crowns. Floss or interdental cleaners (specially shaped brushes and sticks) are important tools to remove plaque from the crown area where the gum meets the tooth. Plaque in that area can cause dental decay and gum disease. Regularly scheduled examinations and hygiene appointments must be adhered to, or the same bacterial assault which causes decay and makes dental care necessary may cause the restorations to fail.

You can also use Water Floss ( A specialised instrument ) for Cleaning.
