Crowns and Bridges:

Symptoms and

Like a symphony, your teeth work together as a group. That means that the strength and stability of one tooth will affect and influence its adjacent ones. When early, unnecessary tooth loss occurs, that can upset the natural harmony in your mouth, leading to serious dental problems later in life.

The Rothenberg Dental Group can correct this problem with crown and bridge retainers. They can help people with missing teeth in a wide variety of ways:

  • Improve chewing
  • Improve speech
  • Enhance appearance
  • Boost confidence
  • Decrease incidence of gum disease
  • Stop drifting and dental arch collapse

Crowns-A Fixed (Not Removable)

One of the most popular tooth replacement options is a crown, also known as a cap. It’s a laboratory processed restoration, custom made and crafted of porcelain or other materials. The Rothenberg Dental Group has extensive experience fabricating crowns to fit any mouth, and ensuring the crown is strong enough to protect the remaining tooth structure during chewing.

Fixed Bridges-A Solution for Multiple Missing Teeth

Another solution for missing teeth is a fixed bridge. This is ideal for one or more missing teeth, adjacent to each other. The Rothenberg Dental Group can help with those as well. A fixed bridge is a series of crowns fastened together, and cemented into the mouth next to supporting adjacent teeth.

Lifespan of a Crown or Fixed Bridge

How long should a crown or fixed bridge last?
That depends on a number of factors:

  • Periodontal support integrity of gums and bone
  • Prevalence of decay
  • Oral hygiene maintenance
  • Stress-biting and chewing pressures
  • Good oral habits
