Purpose of treatment
Fixed prosthodontics, or crown and bridge treatment, includes the care of individual teeth that are so broken-down and/or severely weakened that their treatment requires special materials and techniques, often referred to as “capping’, “crowning” or “pegging”.
Benefits of treatment
These often complex restorations allow patients to enjoy the advantages of maintaining their teeth in a way that is very similar to having their own teeth. These benefits include, in addition to appearance and chewing considerations, an important oral health aspect. Teeth restored with crowns and bridges help significantly in preserving the facial appearance, shape, and the contour of the jaws.
