Teeth Bridging is a dental treatment to replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth, whereby an artificial tooth is fixed permanently to adjoining teeth which are crowned. It is a similar procedure as doing a crown. The adjoining teeth are prepared to receive crowns.

A crown is a replacement “cap” on the tooth that is permanently fixed on a tooth to restore it’s natural shape and size.

Crowns are generally needed to strengthen and improve the appearance of a tooth. It is necessary when a tooth has broken down due to the following reasons.

After root canal treatment to protect brittle teeth from fracture

To mask discoloured or very misshaped teeth

When there is a crackline so the crown can hold the tooth together

To reinforce a large filling which cannot withstand occlusal forces without fracturing

Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Implants are placed in your jawbone by surgery. Most of the time, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures.

Benefits of implants

Feel — because implants are imbedded in your bone, they feel more like your natural teeth than bridges or dentures.

Convenience — you will not need to worry about denture adhesives or having your dentures slip, click or fall out when you speak.

Nutrition — you will be able to chew better with implants. Chewing can be difficult with regular dentures, especially ones that don’t fit perfectly. A regular upper denture also covers your palate, which can reduce your sense of taste.

Self-esteem — because implants are so much like your natural teeth, you will think about them less. Your self-esteem and confidence will be improved because you will not have to worry about denture problems or people noticing that you have missing teeth. Regular dentures also can affect your speech, which can make you less self-confident when talking to others.
