What is a Dental Bridge?

If you're missing a tooth in the back of your mouth, the 'out of sight out of mind' philosophy is not the smartest way of thinking.
Besides the loss of chewing that comes with a missing tooth, there are other problems to consider. The original tooth acted as a place holder, keeping the adjacent teeth in position. With it gone, the adjacent and opposing teeth will shift, which will further affect proper function of the remaining teeth. As well the remaining teeth may be more susceptible to periodontal issues.

One solution Port Union Dental can offer patients with missing teeth is called a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a procedure that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Artificial teeth are fixed and bonded in place by using adjacent teeth as anchors, a procedure which can usually be done within two to three appointments.

What is a Crown?

A crown is a covering that sits over the top of the tooth, acting to protect, seal, and strengthen your tooth while appearing totally natural. Crowns are used in many different scenarios as they are effective and often allow us to save teeth.

Situations where a crown may be the solution include:

  • Larger fillings that have broken down or have formed tooth decay around them may need a crown to save the tooth.
  • A cracked tooth may need a crown to hold it together. Be careful not to wait too long as an untreated cracked tooth can become sensitive or eventually break.
  • Sensitive teeth, either from a lot of "wear" sometimes require crowns to seal and protect the teeth from hot and cold sensitivity.
  • A broken tooth may be too weak to hold a filling. A crown will hold the tooth together and prevent it from breaking again. If the fracture is too deep, Root Canal Therapy may be required before the tooth is crowned.
  • A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy will need a crown to properly seal and protect the tooth from fracture.
A crown may be the solution to saving a tooth; Scarborough Dentist, Dr. Kotansky, and his team at Port Union Dental will evaluate your needs depending on your oral health and the condition of your teeth. Contact us today for a consultation.
