Dental bridges in Brooklyn are multiple crowns fused together for replacing missing teeth. For example, if you were missing one tooth, Brooklyn dentist would prepare for crowns teeth on either side of the space and 3 crowns fused together would be cemented into place.
The drawback is that you are crowning teeth that may not necessarily need to be crowned.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist or oral surgeon places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. After the completion of surgical part you will return to our Brooklyn dental office and Dr. Vaysman will proceed with prosthetic part of your treatment. Impression will be taken by best dentist in Brooklyn and dental lab will produce titanium abutment by adapting factory made stock abutment, or making a custom abutment. Brooklyn dentist Dr. Vaysman will attach this abutment to the implant in your mouse, take an impression and dental lab will produce a crown that will be cemented in your mouse.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF CROWNING TEETH THAT DO NOT NEED TO BE CROWNED??
If the teeth already have root canals and fillings, then, not too much. If the teeth are intact, there is a RISK of SENSITIVITY to hot and cold, or even necessity of root canal treatment.
The two (or more) teeth on either side of the space that are crowned, are called, abutments. Because these teeth are going to be assuming a heavier load from the missing tooth or teeth, the abutment teeth need to be very strong, and in good condition. If they have periodontal disease for example, that is not an ideal situation.
The fake teeth that are going over the space where you are replacing missing teeth, are called pontics. In a tooth bridge, there is usually at least 2 abutments and 1 pontic, although in longer bridges there may be numerous abutments and pontics.
This is a type of bridge that is usually only done in the front of the mouth, to replace ONLY ONE tooth. A false tooth is attached to two wings which are glued to the adjacent teeth. Because of the limited strength, they are not the best options for all patients. In those who grind or have inappropriate bites, MARYLAND BRIDGES will not be successful.
