This is the process by which we restore both functionally and aesthetically:
1. Teeth that have been extensively damaged (eg, decayed teeth)
Crowns are structures that cover the teeth which:
- are endodontically treated
- have been fractured
- have problems with their structure – construction (eg molar dilatation)
- show severe discoloration (eg, fluorescence, medication use)
- need aesthetic improvements in shape and form.
2. Gaps in the mouth after tooth extraction
When one or more teeth are lost they need to be repaired because otherwise problems arise, such as:
- Bone loss
- Exaggeration of the tooth competitor
- Displacement and deviation of adjacent teeth
- Difficulty chewing
- Difficulty cleaning the area
- Possible pain in the temporomandibular joint
- Difficulty speaking (in the case of anterior teeth)
- Aesthetic problems
The way to repair missing teeth is to create a “bridge” consisting of at least 3 porcelain teeth. In the simplified case that a single tooth has been extracted, we use the adjacent extracted teeth to act as supports to hang a bridge between them. “Bridge” means that part of the stationary bridge that replaces the missing tooth (s). So we have bridges to replace anterior teeth and bridges to replenish the posterior teeth. In this way, we achieve a highly functional and aesthetic result.
Replacement of lost teeth can also be done by dental implants. The placing of dental implants have a lot of advantages comparing with the dental “bridges” or dentures:
- We don’t drill adjacent teeth
- Prevents further bone loss in the toothless area
- It contributes to denture stability or to avoid denture placement (where there are indications of a sufficient number of implants)
- They have aesthetically advantage over classic dentures.
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. In the case that the patient does not choose the restoration with modern implant techniques, the mouth can be satisfactorily restored with a partial or complete removable denture.
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
