Did you know that dentists can choose between three basic procedures to replace a missing tooth? Your dentist has the option of installing a dental bridge, a dental implant, or inserting of removable appliance. Dr. Viral Turakhia of My Dentist in Mumbai, India, believes that dental bridges are the most popular choice, and with good reason.
Dental bridges are composed of two crowns, also known as caps, with a false tooth affixed between them. The crowns or camps are attached to the teeth or on either side of a place where you're missing a tooth and have an empty tooth socket.
