Crown and Bridge
A dental crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth whereas a dental bridge is cemented to the natural teeth or implants to replace an empty space. Restore and improve your smile with dental crowns and bridges at The Dental Roots.
When to use Crown OR Bridge?
How Long do they last?
They can last a lifetime but they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown or bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease.
Keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Also, visit us regularly for check-ups and professional cleaning. Oral health is not much different from the rest of our bodies. Get regular dental checkups at The Dental Roots.
Dental Implants have become the best and the most accepted way of replacing a missing tooth/teeth.
What is Dental Implant?
Implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. Once healed, implants provide a strong foundation upon which a crown or “cap” may be placed. They are permanent and can last a lifetime with proper care. We also offer free dental implant analysis for our patients for getting the treatment started.
