Crown Bridges & Dentures


Adhesive bridges
An alternative to a fixed bridge is an adhesive bridge. An adhesive bridge has wings which are attached to the back of the supporting teeth with strong adhesive. Adhesive bridges require much less removal of the neighbouring teeth. Another alternative way to support a bridge is with dental implants.

Replacement of missing teeth can be accomplished by three different modes of treatment

1. Implant Dentistry 2. Fixed Bridges 3. Removable partial or complete dentures. The best treatment depends on the number, location and condition of the remaining teeth..All three of these options will restore function and stabilize the bite in an esthetically pleasing way.

1) Implant Dentistry Dental implants serve as the foundation for many types of tooth replacement. Implants can replace one tooth or several missing teeth with crowns or bridges that are fixed in place. For replacement of many teeth or all of the teeth, implants can support very secure removable dentures or fixed bridges if the conditions in the mouth allow it. Implants allow excellent esthetic and functional replacements of missing teeth.

2) Fixed Bridges Fixed bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements which help maintain facial structure, reduce stress on the jaw and fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth. These bridges are cemented on the existing teeth and do not come out.

3) Removable Partial Dentures Removable partial dentures replace teeth lost due to decay, periodontal disease or injury. They replace the missing teeth, utilizing the remaining teeth to support and secure the removable partial denture. Removable partial dentures are a functional, esthetic and cost-effective means of tooth replacement.

4)Complete Dentures Complete dentures replace teeth when all upper and/or lower teeth are missing. They restore the function of eating, restore proper facial esthetics and help people talk properly.
