Four Common Types of Dental Bridges
  • Traditional Dental Bridges
  • Traditional dental bridges are the most commonly
    used bridges used by dentists across the world.
    These bridges comprise fake teeth that are
    crowned and placed between natural teeth on
    either side. These bridges can also be used as
    replacements for molars and serve the same
    function as naturally occurring teeth.
  • Cantilever Bridges
  • Cantilever bridges are similar to the traditional
    bridges. However, they only need the support of
    one adjacent tooth rather than two.
  • Maryland Bridges
  • Maryland bridges comprise fake teeth or pontic
    that are held in their place using a metal or
    porcelain framework. This framework, using the
    support of adjacent teeth, holds the fake tooth
    in place.
  • Implant Bridges
  • The implant-support bridges are effective for
    cases where you have more than one tooth missing.
    Contrary to the previous three sorts of bridges,
    this one does not take the support of crowns or
    frameworks. The bridges use the implant for

The importance of dental bridges
  • Because bridges are filling up that visible gap
    between the teeth, they can help a patient to
    smile once again with a beaming face. They also
    restore the chewing function of the jaw and help
    with speaking. Once the gaps are closed, the
    bridges help to maintain the natural shape of
    your jaw which will no longer find a reason to
    contort in order to fill up the missing spaces.
  • Yet another primary function of the teeth is to
    properly distribute the pressure when you bite
    down on food, something which is negatively
    disrupted due to the missing teeth.

Why Are Invisalign Better Than Metal Braces?
  • Invisalign are a preferred option for adults who
    are looking for suitable alternatives for the
    metal braces. Invisalign can be equally effective
    as metal braces for conditions like crooked or
    gapped teeth. Even if you have malocclusion like
    overbite, underbite or open bite, Invisalign is a
    suitable option for you.
  • However, if the condition entails more severity
    like crossbites, extensively crooked teeth, or
    massive teeth flaws, then metal braces are the
    only way to resolve the problem. A determining
    factor in preference of Invisalign over metal
    braces is the transparency of the orthodontic
  • Many people avoid metal braces only because of
    the stigma it brings and the fear they have of
    getting their misaligned teeth noticed.
    Invisalign option for teeth alignment is more
    effective in maintaining clean teeth as metal
    braces have the tendency to stain your teeth. The
    food stuck between the brackets and the wires can
    cause unavoidable discolouring of the teeth.

When Is It Time To Invest In Invisalign
  • When your teeth have become a source of
    embarrassment and you constantly try to restrict
    your smile or avoid showing your teeth in
    photographs or social situations. Your teeth help
    build or break your self-esteem. Good teeth can
    help you look better, more attractive, and
    increase your chances of success in
    organizations. Invisalign can help you feel good
    about yourself.
  • Think better oral health and hygiene. When you
    have well-shaped teeth, you can brush and floss
    them easily. You would also be sparing yourself
    from gum diseases and plaque build-up in the
    unreachable or neglected parts of your mouth.
  • Its not only oral hygiene youre talking about
    here. Straightened teeth can spare you from
    speech problems, broken teeth, and headaches.
    When you have misaligned or yellow teeth, your
    mental health is also affected. Straightening
    your teeth can help you get rid of these troubles
    and live a better life.
  • Do you like the look of traditional braces
    sticking out on your teeth in front of photos?
    No, right? All that wiring and bands who likes
    the look of that? Invisalign is a great choice
    because no one would be able to tell you re
    wearing braces at all.
  • They are removable and can save you time and
    money. They are more comfortable to wear. They
    can also improve your overall health and

Teeth Whitening Four Natural Ways to Do It
  • Oil Pulling
  • This is one of the traditional Indian methods of
    maintaining oral hygiene. All you have to do is
    take some oil and swish it in your mouth.
  • Baking Soda
  • The versatile baking soda can be used for
    whitening teeth naturally. Baking soda has the
    ability to scrub away any stains on the teeth. It
    instigates an alkaline milieu in the mouth that
    prevents the bacteria from growing and causing
    not just a foul smell but also prevents yellowing
    of the teeth.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Apple cider vinegar is widely used as a
    disinfectant and cleaner. It has the tendency to
    kill the bacteria and cleanse your mouth.
    Whitening the teeth is just an added bonus. Apple
    cider vinegar has a bleaching effect but it can
    also soften the teeth which can be dangerous for
    your oral wellbeing.
  • Strawberries and Baking Soda
  • Strawberries, when combined with baking soda, can
    be a natural teeth whitener. The malic acid in
    the strawberries, contribute in removing the
    discolouration on the teeth and the baking soda
    serves in removing the stains.

How to Maintain Teeth Whitening Results
  • Food that stain
  • This is a logical stance. There are certain foods
    that are surely going to stain your teeth. Though
    not all, there are some food items that leave
    behind color which might immediately undermine
    your teeth whitening efforts.
  • Foods that protect your teeth
  • There are a lot of foods that help protect your
    teeth. These will in fact help clean them that
    rather than stain them. Celery and apples are the
    two food items that are renowned for making your
    teeth stronger and cleaning them with every bite.
    These fruits will not only clean your teeth but
    they will also aid to produce more saliva. The
    chewing of these foods scrapes off the tartar
    from your teeth and the excess saliva will wash
    away the debris that might be stuck in between
    the teeth.
  • Brushing teeth after meals
  • Though as it is mentioned above that a lot of the
    foods can and will stain the teeth immediately,
    the fact of the matter is that almost any food
    will work to eliminate the whiteness of the teeth.

How to Maintain Teeth Whitening Results
  • However, that can be prevented by brushing your
    teeth after almost every meal. To people who
    havent undergone a teeth whitening treatment,
    dentists recommend you brush your teeth twice a
  • Use a straw
  • If you do wish to drink beverages such as coffee,
    tea, and wine, then it is preferred that you use
    a straw. You should also use straws when you
    consume sodas and artificially colour drinks.
  • Do not smoke
  • Smoking is known to come with a lot of
    disadvantages and one major one is that it will
    stain your teeth horribly overtime. The nicotine
    and tat present in the cigarette will stain your
    teeth yellow immediately and make it extremely
    recognizable, and eventually even turn it brown.
