Dental implants are titanium “roots” that are inserted into the jawbone in place of missing teeth. They are a great long-term choice and once you get them, a crown or a bridge can be placed on top to restore proper functionality for your mouth. You will be able to brush and floss the implants like natural teeth. Some of the advantages that implants offer are:
Increased denture retention and stability, especially in the lower jaw
Improved speech and comfort
Improved oral health
A dental crown is a hard, protective covering that is placed over a tooth to hold the tooth and prevent further damage. Crowns are used after a tooth has had multiple fillings or a root canal. The plastic ones are generally low-cost but do not last as long as the metal-based crowns. Crowns can also be used to aesthetically enhance the smile, reduce spaces between teeth and optimize alignment.
Dental bridges are non-removable and fill individual gaps in your smile. Bridges are recommended if the roots of your missing or damaged teeth are healthy. In order to fabricate a bridge, Dr. Karim will prepare the teeth adjacent to the missing ones. The next step involves attaching false teeth to either side of the crowns. The bridge is one solid piece and cemented firmly.
