Dental crowns in VikaspuriCrowns: Dental crowns are an aesthetic treatment (since they visually replace the natural teeth of the patient), but also unlike the veneers, they also represent a functional treatment, since the dental crown reinforces the tooth, which makes it more beautiful, it becomes a more “useful” tooth.

They are used mostly in the posterior teeth (the most hidden), that is, in the premolars and molars, since they are the teeth most used in chewing and therefore, more exposed to wear and more in need of great firmness.

Dental crowns can be manufactured with various materials, although the most commonly used are porcelain, metal and zirconium.

What are the Dental Crowns for?

A dental crown has the same uses that dental veneers can have (all aesthetic), but they can also be used for other more functional purposes such as:

Reinforce teeth: If a tooth is too weak or too small, the use of the veneers would not be adequate, since they only have aesthetic utility and are limited to cover a part of the tooth. In this case, the dental crown is an ideal treatment that for the patient would suppose to have an authentic “new tooth”, bigger, stronger and prettier.

Cover the lack of teeth: If a patient has a very large space between two teeth because it has lost the tooth that was between them, it is possible to recover that lost tooth by placing dental implants in which later crowns will be placed. You could also recover teeth by a “triple crown” (a dental bridge) placed on the teeth that are (previously cut) or on other implants if necessary.


dental bridge in VikaspuriWhen one or more teeth are missing, the best dentist in Vikaspuri may propose to install a dental prosthesis. There are several options that can be put in place to solve the problem, such as dentures, although more commonly it is thought to install a dental bridge in Vikaspuri. Much less known than the crown, it is, however, one of the most frequently chosen prostheses by patients.

The bridge is fixed on two proximal teeth that take the name of abutment teeth. These teeth are reduced in volume or devitalized.

Do you want to know the advantages and disadvantages of this dental bridge in Vikaspuri? The difference between a bridge on the plant and a glued one? How much? How to install it? Or do you simply want to learn more?

Bridge or plant: what are the differences?

The bridge and the implant are two dental solutions that can replace a missing tooth. Both offer advantages, but also drawbacks. To give you all the information on these two treatments we will explain them in detail.

The bridge

This prosthesis rests on two pillar teeth, located on the sides of the missing tooth. If a pillar tooth is damaged, it will be devitalized and treated. In any case, both abutment teeth are milled by the dentist in Vikaspuri.

 The advantages

  • It can replace numerous teeth: it is quite common to install these prostheses to replace 2 or 3 missing teeth
  • Its cost is much lower than for installations
  • The aesthetic side is close to perfection, with the use of colors identical to those of the other teeth. It is practically impossible to notice.

The disadvantages

  • The abutment teeth are in many cases intact teeth that must be milled and devitalized. It is, therefore, necessary to “sacrifice” two healthy teeth.
  • The root of the tooth in the center is eliminated, so over time, the gum bone will tend to withdraw. If you want to install systems one day, it could be complicated. In this case, it is better to install them directly without using this procedure.

The implant

Even the dental implant in Vikaspuri has its advantages and its drawbacks, and it is good to know them.

The advantages

  • Leaves teeth close together and integrate completely into the jawbone
  • Every time he chews, he stimulates the bone and forces it to constantly renew itself
  • Oral hygiene is easier to maintain than other dental prostheses

The disadvantages

  • It has a high cost
  • The installation procedure requires several appointments and lasts several weeks.

What are the differences between the two prostheses?

To make a summary of the differences between the two prostheses, we can say that the dental bridge in Vikaspuri is the least expensive, with a faster treatment and installation process, and does not require invasive treatments.

The implant has a longer life, it does not need the abutment teeth to fix on and therefore it does not damage the other teeth, but it is more expensive.

The choice between these two solutions, therefore, depends on financial, functional, aesthetic issues and must consider the quality of the jawbone that will be obtained after the treatment.

The installation of a dental bridge in Vikaspuri

The installation can take place according to different procedures, but the most common is the following:

  • During the first phase, the dentist in Janakpuri performs appropriate care. The area where the tooth is missing is cured, if necessary, and the piece of the tooth that is possibly left is extracted. The abutment teeth are milled to give it the right shape.
  • During the second appointment, the dental impression is taken: the dentist in Delhi delivers it to a prosthodontist who will make the bridge. To take the impression the dentist in Uttam Nagar uses a paste that is fixed to the jaw several times and that will be the cast of the future dental prosthesis.
  • The third phase involves the installation of the bridge. It is done in a short time. The dentist then checks that the upper and lower teeth close properly and that the bridge does not cause problems. If necessary, it can file and mill the prosthesis for possible adjustments. The installation, therefore, requires only two or three appointments from your dentist in Uttam Nagar.

The installation of a bonded bridge

If only one tooth needs to be replaced, the cosmetic dentist in Vikaspuri can choose to install a bonded bridge (also called a Maryland bridge). As in the previous case, it makes an impression of the teeth and lets the prosthodontist create an intermediate tooth equipped with two metal fins, which will be glued to the inside of the adjacent teeth. The advantage of this procedure is to keep the neighboring teeth intact.

Installation of a bridge on plant

This procedure is necessary when the patient does not have teeth that can serve as a pillar. A classical prosthesis in these cases cannot be installed, and it is, therefore, necessary to use implants. It is, in any case, a relatively simple procedure.

The dental surgeon installs the implants where the abutment teeth are missing. The bridge is therefore composed of 3 crowns, two of which will be fixed on the implants.

Dental Implants

Dental Implantology

Dental implant in Vikaspuri is a procedure to replace the missing teeth with as many artificial roots anchored to the bone.

The loss of natural teeth has always been a debilitating event, both for functionality and for the aesthetics of the mouth. Before the advent of dental implantology, restoration was made possible only by means of prostheses fixed to the teeth adjacent to the missing ones: a demolition intervention, which provided for the filing to receive the crowns that would have supported the missing tooth. When the number and quality of natural teeth were not favorable to the construction of fixed prostheses, the replacement of the missing teeth included, instead, the application of partial or total mobile prostheses.

These devices are disappearing today thanks to the progress made in the field of the prevention of dental caries and periodontopathic, which have reduced the loss of dental elements, but also thanks to the dental implant in Uttam Nagar that allowed their stable replacement, even in cases of a complete loss.

With the use of the dental implant in Janakpuri, it was no longer necessary to involve intact teeth to replace missing teeth, nor to apply dentures or in any case mobile artefacts.

Insertion of an implant and its uses.

Dental implant in Vikaspuri is generally surgically inserted under local anaesthesia. After healing, the artificial root serves as the base for the visible end of the tooth.

In some cases, with an immediate loading implant technique, in 24 hours after surgery, the patient can be rehabilitated without having to wait for the clinical healing time of the implant. Contrary to what one might think, in most cases, dental implant in Uttam Nagar is not painful or even expensive and has a very high success rate.

Anatomy of dental implants

A dental implant essentially consists of three parts:

  • PLANT OR PILLAR a structure similar to a screw that is inserted into the bone;
  • ABUTMENT a small metal or ceramic structure that connects the prosthesis to the implant;
  • PROSTHESIS an artificial crown that replaces the natural one.

Dental implantology

Dental implant in Janakpuri, as an artificial root firmly inserted into the bone, can effectively support a single capsule or a bridge, or they can act as excellent anchoring to an unstable or poorly tolerated denture.

Depending on the needs, it is possible to insert one or more implants, to replace a single tooth, several teeth (the partial dental prosthesis) or all the teeth of the arch (the complete dental prosthesis).

Dental implant in Vikaspuri serves to restore both the esthetic, the phonetics and the masticatory function to the patient, to fill in those dental gaps that could lead to a displacement of the residual dentition, and to avoid reaching a situation of malocclusion and disorders at the level of the temporomandibular joint.

How are dental implants made? 

They are made of titanium, a metal widely used in surgery due to its biocompatible biological neutrality and well tolerated by the human organism. Their surface is roughened in order to increase and even accelerate the possibility of osseointegration (ie the total incorporation into the bone structure) which in research was well studied and ascertained thanks to optical and electronic microscopy. Titanium implants are of various shapes, but those of the latest generation have a mostly cylindrical shape, normally have a length that varies between 6-18 mm and a diameter that varies between 3-6 mm.


dentures in VikaspuriOften for many patients, the idea of ​​having to install dentures can be a source of some concern, but only because they have the wrong information on the subject and more doubts and questions than answers. What are the different types of options available for dentures in Vikaspuri, what are the materials used, when is it really necessary to install them and why?

You are many to ask yourself these questions, and it is true that dentists do not always take the time to respond comprehensively. That’s why we at the dental clinic in Vikaspuri decided to talk about it and answer all the questions on this topic.

In which cases a prosthesis must be used:

Fixed or removable dentures in Vikaspuri are intended to replace one or more teeth, but also to protect damaged teeth. Not only boxers or elderly people lose their teeth, on the contrary, in most cases, but they are also the effects of caries or periodontitis that lead to having to resort to using prostheses.

This device will, therefore, replace one or more teeth to recover a correct chewing function, to prevent the other teeth from becoming misaligned and to find a beautiful smile.

Removable dental prostheses: the denture

The denture is a removable prosthesis that serves to replace one or more teeth. There are two types: 

The partial removable prosthesis 

It is a prosthesis on a rigid metal frame that replaces a part of the teeth. It rests on the gums but also on the remaining teeth thanks to the hooks. This type of removable prosthesis is a little more stable than the complete prosthesis thanks to the support offered by the teeth.

It is made of resin in the case of temporary equipment, or with a metal base, the stellite, a cobalt-chromium alloy.

The advantages

  • Integrates with the remaining teeth thanks to the hooks
  • It is much less expensive than a fixed prosthesis
  • It is more stable thanks to the hooks
  • It can accommodate other “false teeth” in case someone is still lost

The disadvantages

  • The patient must remove it after each meal to clean it
  • The best dentist in Vikaspuri cannot always hide the metal hooks. In these cases, the aesthetic side suffers.

The complete removable prosthesis

The complete removable dentures in Vikaspuri is indicated in the case of a total absence of teeth. In common parlance, it is called denture. It is made with a resin base and false teeth in resin or porcelain. The upper prosthesis remains in place thanks to the phenomenon of capillarity, while the lower one is much less stable. This is why special denture adhesives must be used. The dentist in Vikaspuri can install two dental implants and a bar on which he will fix the dentures.

The advantages

  • It is less expensive if there are no installations installed
  • The realization is simple and fast and allows the patient to finally find the masticatory function

The disadvantages

  • It may be difficult to get used to the denture
  • It can cause injuries in the mouth, especially at the beginning.
  • It must be removed after each meal to clean

Installation of a removable dental prosthesis

Installation obviously depends on the type of prosthesis. For a partial stellite prosthesis, the dentist in Janakpuri proceeds with the installation by fixing the hooks on the abutment teeth. Once installed it will proceed to make several adjustments and adjustments.

For the installation of a denture, the dentist in Uttam Nagar places it in the patient’s mouth and verifies its correct holding; here too it has to make various adjustments. It may be necessary to consult the dentist in Delhi several times to make sure that the dentures are as comfortable as possible and to check that everything is proceeding in the right direction.
