Which type for 4 unit bridge you recommend on back molar teeth #11 to 14. Is it crown- porcelain fused to high noble metal, gold, or pure porcelain.?

Depends on the need. The types of materials that i chose for my patient is dependent on the occlusion (bite) the types of dental material or natural tooth on the opposing tooth structure and the force of the bite. Any and all of those choices and their combination could be right. Read more...
Depends. #11 thru 13 could be porcelain fused to high noble metal & #14 gold (high noble metal or all porcelain fused to metal. All gold would be very unesthetic. Would not recommend pure porcelain, although some ceramic materials might be used to replace just one tooth. More than one missing tooth might flex and break. Read more...
Porc - High Noble. I would recommend implants before this long span bridge involving the canine. Is this an option ? Otherwise, the porc - high noble is my recommendation for fit and esthetics. Read more...
See below. Your bridge involves replacing two missing teeth. If the teeth on either side of the missing ones are healthy, i would strongly suggest you have implants done rather then cutting down to healthy teeth. If that is not an option you can use porelcain to gold but i would use a zirconium bridge. They are very strong and without metal. Read more...
Usually would not. The biggest concern is the length of the span. Gold is unaestheitc and soft. The pfm bridge could flex and the porcelain could crack. Some of the new ceramics could work, but have you ruled out implants? Read more...

Purpose of braces.. The purpose of the braces is to move your teeth into a better position. You had a tooth extracted (most likely a premolar, not a molar) so that the orthodontist has enough room to move the remaining teeth into proper position. Part of the orthodontic plan should be to "close up" that space as the other teeth are moved. Ask your orthodontist to clarify your treatment plan with you. Read more...

Discomfort under molar tooth previously cleaned and filling replaced (pardon my english and my terminology, I'm italian) six months ago I replaced my old filling with a new white one. The dentist noticed I was a irritated under the tooth so he put some me

When . When replacing an old filling, the dentist removes the old restorative material as well as any decay that might have formed underneath the old filling. He the "medicated" the area and refilled the tooth. However, it is impossible to know whether the bacteria from the old decay in the tooth have seeped into the nerve. These can lay dormant for a time until they begin to irritate the nerve. It is possible that you will need a root canal, however other factors may be contributing to your discomfort. You may just need a bite adjustment to reduce the pressure on that tooth. Or you may need to desensitize the tooth with medicaments such as extra strength Fluoride or sensodyne tooth paste. It is wise to get back to your dentist asap for a checkup before the problem gets worse. Read more...
It . It sounds like your tooth was restored with tooth colored composite material and not silver/amalgam. These composite materials are known to cause more post treatment sensitivity for longer periods of time than amalgam. Hopefully the sensitivity will subside over time. If the sensitivity continues or gets worse, i would recommend removing the composite and verifying that all decay was removed, placing a layer of cement base to protect the pulp, and place a new composite or amalgam filling. Talk with your existing dentist to determine which material is the best to restore the tooth. Read more...
There . There a a few things that could be causing this sensation in your tooth. The major reasons could be either that the nerve inside your tooth is inflamed or the bite on the tooth is too heavy. A visit to your dentist soon would be helpful to determine the cause of the sensitivity. Once that is determined, then you and your dentist can decide if it is possible to postpone treatment until you have the resources. Many times it is possible to postpone treatment. Read more...
Need to see. Firstly, your english is fine, quite good in fact. If after 6 months the tooth is still irritated, it could be that the amount of tooth removal during the replacement has caused a chronic sensitivity to the nerve of the tooth. The nerve does not need to be exposed for this, just close enough to continually keep it inflamed. An x-ray should help address why. Read more...
