Bridge Of Glasses
Glasses vs contacts: First of all, glasses are cheaper and there are no side effects to glasses. They're very easy to use and can offer protection to your eyes. Contact lenses, only offer cosmetic advantages, except in very rare eye conditions, which are solely treated with contacts, but those are rare. Contact lenses need to be cared for & fit properly, are more expensive, & can have side effects or even intolerance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Costs vary, but...: The costs of contacts are variable depending on many factors. The benefits of contacts over glasses are better vision, especially in nearsighted people, no fogging, better peripheral vision and better appearance. Disadvantages are more time and effort to use, increased risk of infection and cost. ...Read more
Several types: There are several types of fda approved lens implants. These include standard single vision implants covered by insurance; plus other types of more advanced implants that are not.

Not necessarily.: Some frames work better than others with wide noses. Contacts can be used as well, as can refractive surgery. Discuss your options with an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Know the risks and benefits of all your choices and then decide. If surgery appears reasonable, get two opinions from both another eye surgeon and a non-surgeon eye specialist about it. Good luck! ...Read more
Fixed: The biggest difference is that a bonded bridge is fixed and cannot be taken out. A RPD will need to be removed to clean it and what can be removed from your mouth will be able to move within your mouth. The bonded bridge may be more expensive than the RPD but most of my patient would rather have something that is not removable. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Implant based bridge VS regular bridge on natural teeth. Which is stronger on back teeth for grinder. Regular bridge on natural teeth broken 4 times.
Situation dependent: If the natural teeth are strong and have good bone support, then it is better to keep them. If they are damaged in some way, extraction and placement of implants is the next best choice. As a grinder, best materials are strong metals or BRUXZIR zirconium. Regardless, you must protect your investment by wearing an occlusal night guard, preferably with an anterior discluding device. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Feedback or cons/ bros on using all solid zirconium to support the length/span of 4 unit bridge covering teeth 11to14. Prevosiue porc bridge broken?
Very strong: An all zirconium bridge contains no metal and is very strong. Another bridge option is a porcelain over metal bridge, which you may already have that has broken. Other options for replacing missing teeth would be implant(s) to replace the missing teeth or a partial denture. However, we are big proponents for all-zirconium bridges that are more biocompatible with the tissue than metal based bridges ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Throw light on LASIK eye surgery. Is it save at the age of 32 years with myopia with my glass power being 4.75 spherical for both eyes?
Not recommended: It is generally not a good idea to have surgery for a benign condition. 1-2% complication rate is too high for me for a condition that can be treated without surgery. In about 10-15 years you will still need glasses, for presbyopia, even if you have lasik now. I would not recommend it. ...Read more

Rhinoplasty: Yes. A common complaint that people have is that they don't like their nasal bridge and like it to be improved with rhinoplasty.
