Crowns & Bridges Treatment By Best Dentist In Surat

Dental Implant in Surat

As the name suggests, Dental bridges literally bridges the gap caused by missing teeth one or more. A bridge comprises of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. These two anchoring
teeth are called abutment (supporting) teeth — and false tooth/teeth are placed in between. As per our Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. You can consult with best dentist in Surat for bridge treatment.

What Is The Process For Getting A Dental Bridge As Per Our Best Dentist?

During the first visit for getting a dental bridge, the abutment teeth are prepared. Preparation involves shaping these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow space for a crown to be placed over them. Next, impressions of the teeth are made, which serve as a model on which the bridge is fabricated. Your best dentist in Surat will make a temporary bridge to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made.

During the subsequent visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new porcelain or metal bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the metal framework and bite. This is dependent on each individual's case. If the dental bridge is a fixed bridge, your dentist may temporarily cement it in place for a couple of weeks to make sure it is fitting properly. Later on, the bridge is cemented into place.

Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.

They are used to cover the outer surface of broken down or damaged teeth in order to protect and reinforce them. Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.

Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold, or other metals, acrylic resin, or- a mix- of these materials. Porcelain crowns typically have the most realistic appearance and the newest porcelain is as durable as other materials. Crowns can lighten, reshape, and realign existing teeth creating a healthy and vibrant smile.


Dental bridges quite literally “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are naturallooking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.

Typical fixed bridge consists of pontic (a filler tooth) that is attached to two surrounding crowns (abutments). Once complete, this bridge structure is cemented into the mouth. Without the use of a bridge, spaces in the mouth from missing teeth can cause multiple teeth to shift, lead to occlusion (biting) and/or jaw problems, and may spur periodontal disease. Bridges safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile.

Types of Bridges

There are several different types of bridges. The first is the fixed bridge, which consist of a filler tooth or teeth that is attached to two or more crowns. The crowns fit over the existing tooth to hold the bridge in place. The fixed bridge is the most popular bridge.

Another bridge design is a bonded bridge, known as a “Maryland” bridge or an “Encore” bridge. The Maryland bridge has metal on the lingual. The Encore bridge is all tooth color material. This type of bridge is commonly used to replace a front tooth. The pontic is a front tooth attached to the abutment teeth.

A cantilever bridge is often used when there are teeth only on the side of the span. A typical 3 unit cantilever bridge consist of two abutment crowns that are positioned side be side on the same side of the missing tooth space. The pontic is then connected to the two crowns, which extend into the missing tooth space.

If the missing tooth space has no surrounding teeth, the dentist may decide an implant is the most appropriate choice

Can't It Be Made Before 6-8 Weeks Of Healing?

It can be made but the fit of the denture may reduce once healing is complete. You may then have to refit the denture or get a new one done.

How Long To Wait After Tooth Extraction For Dentures?

Usually a period of 6-8 weeks of healing is recommended before dentures are made.

Types Of Dentures

Complete Dentures : Complete dentures or Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate". The framework of complete dentures may be made of plastic/resin, metal or a combination.

Implant supported Overdentures are an alternate to conventional dentures whereby a full denture is placed over the dental implants with metal bar/balls that gives better retention.

Partial Dentures : Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal clasps or precision attachments that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Precision attachments are generally more aesthetic than metal clasps as they are nearly invisible.

Immediate Dentures : Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal therefore immediate dentures would usually require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made after the healing process as it can take months for your bone and tissue to stabilize after tooth extractions.

When Is Root Canal Treatment Advised?

In many cases, your existing denture can be modified to this system and will fit your new dental implants, saving you the expense of an entirely new denture. One popular option has the stability of a fixed denture, but with the convenience of a removable denture. The denture will not move or disengage from the dental implants with regular movements such as eating or speaking but can be easily removed whenever necessary.

Tooth/Wisdom Tooth Removal

Jaw joint/facial pain care centre.

Why Might I Need To Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Often, wisdom teeth don’t grow in properly. A tooth is “impacted” if it’s prevented from reaching its normal position (say, by obstruction from tissue or another tooth). Impacted teeth can cause problems with chewing or periodontal problems and damage adjacent teeth. A tooth can be partially impacted—it has broken through the surface of the gums but can’t grow into a normal position. Dentists can determine which teeth won’t grow in properly.

Impacted wisdom teeth may hurt, and they can develop cavities, infections or periodontal disease. It's often when these problems arise (as well as during regular dental exams) that people realize they need to have their wisdom teeth extracted.

Some people never need surgery—their wisdom teeth grow into proper position / the teeth stay in the jawbone & don't cause problems. Others don't need surgery as young adults, but their wisdom teeth may cause problems later in life.

When Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

In general, it's best to have wisdom teeth taken out between ages 16 and 22. Like other teeth, wisdom teeth develop in the jawbone. The crown of each tooth is formed first, & it's pushed up when the root of the tooth develops. In young adults, "the formation of the root is not complete, so there are fewer complications & risks."

What's The Extraction Procedure?

You'll be sedated (typically with intravenous anesthetic). Once you're comfortable, the dentist administers a local anesthetic. The surgery takes 20 to 30 minutes. Afterward, you'll spend time in the recovery room. Ask a family member or friend to take you home.

Recovery time depends on your age and the degree of tooth impaction; for younger patients, the swelling and discomfort may last three to five days. Your dental professional may prescribe pain medication.

Gum Treatment

Jaw joint/facial pain care centre.
Periodontal disease is an infection of the periodontium, the area surrounding the tooth. The periodontium consists of four structures: gingiva (gum), alveolar bone (socket where the tooth root is held), cementum (outer lining of root), and the periodontal ligament (ligament that holds the tooth in place). The disease is caused by bacteria, leading to gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and often to periodontitis (inflammation of the periodontium). While gingivitis is reversible, periodontitis is not, and it results in pockets of chronic infection around the tooth root.

Q . How should I treat infected gums The treatment of gums requires removal of the plaque or tartar which remains so closely attached to the gums. Antibiotics may be required for the treatment of minor gum infections. If the infection advances to a periodontal disease, then the treatment can necessitate root planning and curettage.

How Can We Prevent Tooth Decay In Children?

Correct diet : Too much sugar as well as sticky food in the diet, and dental plaque on the teeth, is the main causes of tooth decay and gum disease. Oral hygiene and plaque control: It is important to maintain oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and rinsing after every meal.

Fluoride : Fluoride makes the teeth more resistant to decay and can also reverse initial decay process. Professional fluoride application can be done by the dentist in the form of gels or varnishes.

Fissure sealants : They are thin composite materials that are placed in the fissures of a newly erupted permanent tooth. They aid in making the tooth surface more smooth and easy for maintenance.

When Should I Take My Child To The Dentist For The First Time?

Children should visit a dentist when their first tooth comes in or no later than their first birthday.

Why Should Baby Teeth Be Filled Or Repaired?
