Crowns, Bridges, Implants
At Accent Dental, we’re often asked the difference between crowns, bridges and implants, and how they can benefit our patients. Although each are used to improve the look, feel and function of your teeth, they differ greatly in function.
Crowns are protective covers which fit over decayed or broken teeth, protecting them from further damage. They’re also commonly referred to as ‘caps’ for this reason.
Bridges do what they sound like; they bridge gaps between existing teeth or implants. They’re a collection of two crowns placed either side of a missing tooth, as well as a false tooth to replace the gap. Together, both crowns and the false tooth create a ‘bridge’.
An implant is often used in cases where the root of the tooth has deteriorated. The failed tooth is then replaced with an implant or screw-like post which holds the crown in place. Dental implants are perfect for those who may have lost teeth because of disease or decay.
Why Might You Need Denture’s in Perth?
Dentures may be a viable option for you if you are in need of replacing your missing teeth or require an entire set of new teeth. You may also require dentures if you suffer from dental abnormalities such as ectodermal dysplasia – a set of disorders which effects the development or function of teeth, hair, nails and sweat glands.
A common misconception is that dentures are only used by the elderly. In fact, at Accent Dental, we’ve provided our dentures in Perth to a wide range of individuals, both young and old. There are two main types of dentures:
- Partial dentures – This denture is perfect for those who may have lost more than one tooth. The denture helps to fill the gaps and promote the longevity of your existing teeth.
- Complete Dentures – You may require our complete dentures in Perth, if you have lost all of your existing teeth. These dental solutions ensure your mouth and gums remain in shape, and allow you to continue to eat with ease.
