Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -- these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth -- and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called poetics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

It is generally thought among linguists that they are called wisdom teeth because they appear so late, at an age when a person matures into adulthood and is “wiser” than when other teeth have erupted. Lately, science has added some credence to the idea that the third molar does indeed erupt when a person is “wiser”

A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost intentionally during tooth preparation to improve the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the intended restorative material. Dental restoration also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure that is supported by dental implants.

Your tooth is anesthetized and sometimes relaxing gas (nitrous oxide) is used to make our patients more comfortable. There is no feeling in the tooth during treatment. Root canal treatment involves removing the pulp through the top of the tooth. The root canal is then cleaned, sterilized and sealed at the tip of the root to protect it. We usually build the tooth up and place a porcelain crown over the top of the tooth to strengthen it.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth -- to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
