Crowns, Bridges, Dentures, and Implants: The Facts

There are numerous techniques to handle teeth that are broken or missing. Have you ever been curious about implants, dentures, bridges, and crowns? You’ve definitely heard one of us at Dr. Motiwala Dental Clinic & Implant Centre mention them. Consider this your own personal guide to stuff that might end up in your mouth because Dr. Motiwala is aware that people want to be informed. As always, don’t hesitate to call us if you have any inquiries!

Dentures, Bridges, and Crowns

Most of us will lose at least one adult teeth at some point in our lives. Gum disease is the most frequent cause of tooth loss, although it can also result from an accident, a sports injury, or a cavity treated with anabolic steroids. Even at birth, some people lack the ability to grow one or more adult teeth! The key thing to remember is that everyone will eventually have to choose how to repair a missing or damaged tooth. A gap in your bite can be filled in a variety of ways:


While crowns alone cannot replace a complete tooth, they are crucial in the process of securing teeth and supporting additional appliances that help your bite function properly once more. Sometimes, after a cavity renders a tooth incapable of supporting a filling, Dr. Motiwala will install a crown on a patient’s tooth to enhance its aesthetics or fortify it. Crowns are used to cover implants, attach bridges, restore fractured teeth, and preserve fragile teeth by being positioned directly over the tooth’s surface (like a king’s crown). They are available in a range of colors and materials to meet a range of requirements.


Bridges are dental restoration tools that can be either permanent or detachable and replace lost teeth with prosthetic ones. Bridges increase your bite’s functioning and the appeal of your grin by forming a real bridge between gaps. Gold, alloys, porcelain, or any combination of these materials may be used to make bridges. Although both fixed and detachable bridges rely on the neighboring teeth for support, fixed bridges are often more stable than removable bridges. They do cost more than removable bridges, though.


Dentures may be the best option if you have lost most or all of your teeth. Even though you don’t have any teeth, you can still eat and speak normally thanks to dentures, which look real. Additionally, they aid in preventing the sagging of the facial muscles, which can happen if your face is not adequately supported by teeth. Conventional, instantaneous, and overdentures are the three different forms of dentures. Any remaining teeth must be extracted for conventional dentures to fit, and there must be a healing period (which can be many months or longer). The rest of your teeth must also be extracted in order to fit you with immediate dentures, which are placed the same day as the extractions. If you still have a few healthy teeth, overdentures are a fantastic alternative. Because Dr. Motiwala places your overdentures over your natural teeth, which support them and preserve the integrity of your jawbone, they are known as overdentures. Even while getting used to your dentures may be difficult at first, having healthy teeth over time is far better for your health!


Implants are the finest solution for missing teeth in terms of maintaining the integrity of the jawbone and giving support and strength to surrounding crowns, bridges, and/or dentures. Drs. Ron Wagner, Kent Wagner, Rich Cannon, or Tom Lawler will place little titanium posts called implants straight into your jawbone. They are fixed in place by the bone, which forms a ring around them like a natural root. A new tooth is affixed over the implant once the bone surrounding it has recovered completely. This is the closest thing to a natural tooth you can get. The stimulation from chewing with an implant aids in maintaining the jawbone and promotes circulation in the neighborhood. A healthy smile can be achieved permanently with implants.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Even if missing teeth are not noticeable and don’t appear to influence your bite, action still needs to be taken. Dr. Motiwala wants everyone to be aware that there are more than just aesthetic and practical considerations for using crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants. Your adult teeth are created to act as a team, and any missing members might affect your ability to speak clearly, bite properly, susceptibility to dental disease, and jawbone health.
