Crowns/Bridges/Dentures

Both crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices which are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.
A crown is used to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function.
The dentist may recommend a crown to:
• Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
• Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
• Restore a fractured tooth
• Attach a bridge
• Cover a dental implant
• Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth

Bridges

BRIDGES are commonly used to replace one or more missing (lost) teeth and are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. A bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders

Procelain fused to Metal Crown (PFM)

Porcelain fused to metal crowns are used to restore teeth that are severely damaged or decayed. PFM restorations (crowns & bridges) can be made using different metals such as base metal alloys (cobalt, nickel, and chromium), titanium alloys, and gold alloys. One main benefit of PFM crowns and bridges is their durability. Nowadays, many people are looking to improve the look of their smile, while also maintaining a rigid budget. PFM crowns and bridges offer the best of both worlds. They are highly aesthetic like all ceramic crowns, but are far more affordable. Because of this, they are highly popular.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns are made from zirconium dioxide which is a very durable type of metal. It is the choice of many dentists for its biocompatibility, which means it’s less likely to provoke the body into producing a reaction or immunological response like inflammation. One of the biggest advantages of zirconia is its strength and durability. Your crowns need to be made of a strong material, so zirconia is a good choice for crowns. Also, because zirconia itself is so strong, it does not require much preparation (grinding) of your tooth.

E-Max Crowns

An EMAX crown is a type of all-ceramic crown made from lithium disilicate material, which is known for its excellent strength and appealing aesthetics as a restorative crown material. EMAX crowns are slightly translucent that can closely match the teeth’s color, making them an ideal option for a crown restoration, especially in the front teeth.
The EMAX crown is an ideal solution in correcting the following dental problems:
• Teeth that are stained or discolored
• Teeth that are broken or fractured
• Teeth that have undergone root canal procedure
• Teeth that are crooked
Benefits of e max crowns
– It closely matches the shade of the natural teeth.
– Preserves the natural tooth structure. The procedure involved in preparing the tooth for the application of EMAX crown requires only minimal removal of the natural tooth structure.
– Provides excellent durability.

Complete Dentures

COMPLETE DENTURE (also known false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many denture designs, some of which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics).

Immediate Dentures

COMPLETE DENTURE (also knowImmediate dentures are dentures constructed before all of the remaining teeth have been removed and are inserted immediately following removal of the remaining teeth. The patient with a terminal dentition and who faces total teeth extractions can choose from a number of treatment options from immediate complete denture to one of the implant supported protocols.
The most important advantage of immediate dentures is that you never need to appear in public without any teeth. Patients who elect to receive immediate dentures should be counseled about the challenges of wearing removable complete prostheses for the first time, along with surgically associated soreness, swelling, bleeding, bruising and other unpleasant consequences of dental extractions. Mastication and speech may also be awkward and challenging for the first few days (sometimes even weeks) of the immediate denture wearing experience. It does provide a certain amount of function and esthetics for the patient. But, Approximately 6 months after receiving your immediate dentures, the dentures will have to be rebased, relined or a new denture will have to be made.

Flexible Dentures

Flexible dentures are a kind of partial denture, but these ones are made of different materials than ordinary partial dentures. Flexible dentures are made of a thin thermoplastic material such as nylon, compared to the thicker and more rigid acrylic used in conventional dentures.
You may find that flexible partial dentures are a more comfortable fit than other removable partial dentures, especially if you’re still new to wearing replacement teeth. Not only that, but most partial dentures are usually made with metal parts which can sometimes show. Flexible dentures do not use any metal parts so tend to look and feel a lot more natural.

Removal Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture (RPD) is a denture for a partially edentulous patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) due to the lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge. This type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture because patients can remove and reinsert it when required without professional help.
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Removable partial dentures possess clasps of cobalt-chrome or titanium metal or plastic that “clip” onto the remaining teeth, making the RPD more stable and retentive. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position.

Implant-Supported Prosthesis

An implant-supported prosthesis is a denture, which is both retained and supported by dental implants. These dentures are designed specifically to be removable. They are often taken out nightly by the wearer for cleaning. A short period of surgery is required for the implants to be placed into the jawbone and once this is done they’re left to heal and bond with the surrounding bone and gum tissue to form a permanent fixture in the mouth. Special fittings are then used to attach the dentures to the implants and the wearer can simply remove them for cleaning and then snap them back into position.
The advantages of implant supported dentures are numerous and include;
Stability– Because the implants are embedded into the jaw to support the dentures they remain stable and secure, unlike anything you could ever hope for when using dental adhesive.

Improved functionality– Once the implant secured dentures are in place, patients are able to speak, bite, and chew far more easily than they could with conventional dentures.These dentures can withstand a far greater biting force and the wearer will find they can eat a wider diet without being limited to softer foods.
