Bridges & Crowns can help correct bite issues, mitigate TMJ disorders, address speech impediments, and reduce risks for periodontal disease and tooth decay.
Implant Supported Bridges & Crowns
One or more missing teeth can adversely affect the appearance and functionality of your smile. Missing teeth can cause a change in occlusion (bite), shifting of the teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease and a greater chance of tooth decay.
Common Components of Full Mouth Restoration
Dental Implants are an effective solution if you are missing a tooth. Dental Implants are permanently secured into your jawbone and affixed with a replacement tooth, such as a Dental Crown. Implants are secure and aesthetically pleasing and they prevent painful shifting in your mouth.
Dental Crowns are used for severely damaged or decayed tooth. A dental crown provides a protective cover to strengthen your tooth and reinforce your jaw.
Dental Bridges are used when there are one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge works by “bridging” the space created by missing teeth. It anchors to two crowns that are placed on the teeth to either side of your empty space.
The Best Implant Solution for You
If 2 or more consecutive teeth are missing, and the teeth adjacent to your missing teeth are stable, an Implant Supported Bridge is less invasive than Implant Supported Crowns. If stability is a concern, Implant Supported Crowns may be recommended. Implant Supported Crowns provide the best support to each individual tooth.
