Dental braces and bridges are types of fixed dental prosthetics that are permanently attached to the teeth within the oral cavity. The advantage of these devices is that they provide a long-term, stable solution for tooth alignment or replacing missing teeth. However, one drawback is that they cannot be removed without the intervention of a dentist.
When installing a dental crown, the tooth is first carefully shaped and prepared to the appropriate size, and then the crown is placed over it.
are prosthetic devices that are installed in the mouth using a bridging technique. The installation of a dental bridge typically does not require surgery, and the associated risks are relatively low.
To protect dental crowns and bridges, it is recommended to avoid biting into hard foods that may damage the teeth. Additionally, it is important to clean the sides of braces with interdental brushes, floss threaders, or specialized dental floss daily. For bridges, cleaning the area underneath using bridge threaders or floss is crucial. These practices help reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and contribute to the durability of dental crowns and bridges.
