Fixed prosthodontics

The science of replacing the missing teeth using non removable artificial teeth . Also referred to as crowns and bridges. The teeth to be replaced are supported by the natural teeth or by the implants-(the word implants to be active so that one can click on it and it takes him to the site on implantology)

A crown

A bridge allows the dentist to replace lost teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. Basically a false tooth is held in place by being attached to a tooth next door. The disadvantage is that the teeth next to the space have to be prepared in a similiar way to a crown in order to accept the bridge. If these teeth already have crowns or big restorations then this is not a problem, the major concern however is when these teeth have small or no restorations (fillings)
