Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to shift resulting in a bad bite. This can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular disorders. Bridges are commonly used if you’re missing one or more teeth. They cover the space where the teeth are missing and are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space.
Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift inside your mouth; helping tremendously important when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures, bridges, and individual crowns placed over implants. They also feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
