Crowns & Bridges
Loss of teeth indicated towards and opens up a wide variety of situations that may warrant intervention to control further damage.
While accidents are an uncontrollable element, tooth loss from disease is an alarm that calls for immediate attention and action.
Not only does the disease causing tooth loss needs to be treated and controlled, the damage from the tooth loss itself also needs to be restored to prevent the patient’s mental and oral health from going further on it’s downhill path.
Lost teeth can directly affect the mouth and also indirectly affect the patients overall health. This happens by way of two main avenues. Firstly, missing teeth directly affect chewing ability which subsequently affects digestion and absorption and therefore, general health. Secondly, the detrimental impact on speech and aesthetics often result in a loss of confidence and may have a heavy bearing and a negative impact on personality as a person seems to age prematurely.
Dental crowns and bridges can be fabricated from a variety of materials for either affordable or natural looking results. These include metal, ceramic or a combination of both.
