Restorative Dentistry

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It is used to strengthen and protect the inner tooth structure. It is necessary for protection of root canal treated teeth or for teeth that cannot retain filling materials due to the size/position of the cavity. Most crowns are made of ceramic to help to them look natural. Sometimes, metal crowns are advised if you have teeth clenching or grinding habits.
A dental bridge covers or “bridges” the gap between missing teeth, like a series of dental crowns joined together. A bridge can keep your other teeth from moving out of place. Once a bridge is placed, it works just like your natural teeth.

Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth, restoring function and aesthetic, especially during eating and talking. It can also prevent movement of the remaining teeth. Dental implants replace the root of missing tooth with a small titanium screw, also known as a implant fixture, in the bone of the jaw. After the surgical insertion of the implant fixture, replacement tooth or teeth in the form of a crown, bridge or denture, is placed over the implant. This completes the whole dental implant process.  Dental Implants eliminate the inconvenience and hassle of using a removable denture. Dental implants can be permanent if it is well-maintained.

Dentures are plastic teeth and gums moulded to replace missing teeth and gums. Dentures are used to restore function and aesthetic, allowing patients to eat and speak better. There are two kinds of dentures, partial denture and complete denture. Partial dentures are used  to replace one or more tooth/teeth. Complete dentures are used to replace a whole arch of missing teeth. Flexible dentures can be in the form of partial or complete denture; however, the difference between them is that the base of a flexible denture is made using a softer material to ease the insertion and removal of the denture. Chrome base dentures have a hard and stiff frame to give a stronger support for the acrylic resin denture. Dentures require proper home care maintenance in order to last.
