Splinting process allows a weak or movable teeth to survive for a longer time with the help & Support of its strong neighbors. With the help of splinting the patient feels more comfortable during chewing of food. Connecting multiple teeth with splinting also provides increased support for the procedures like partial denture. support when the teeth are used as abutments for a precision attached Several methods, both extracoronal and intracoronal, are available to splint teeth together.
Implant Supported Bridge
A fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants is known as Bridge. The fabrication of the dental bridge is done as per the individual requirement of the patient, taking into consideration the location of the teeth & material from which the bridge is to be prepared. The abutment teeth are reduced according to the pattern of the bridge to accommodate the material to restore the size and shape of the original teeth in the correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth.
Root canal therapy is a sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. This set of procedures is commonly referred to as a “root canal”. Root canals and their associated pulp chamber are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellular entities. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows with tiny files and irrigating solutions, and the obturation (filling) of the decontaminated canals with an inert filling such as guttapercha and typically a eugenol-based cement. Epoxy resin, which may or may not contain BisphenolA is employed to bind guttapercha in some root canal procedures.
A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. While inarguably beneficial to dental health, the procedure & materials can be expensive.
The most common method of crowning a tooth involves using a dental impression of a prepared tooth by a dentist to fabricate the crown outside of the mouth. The crown can then be inserted at a subsequent dental appointment. Using this indirect method of tooth restoration allows use of strong restorative materials requiring time consuming fabrication methods requiring intense heat, such as casting metal or firing porcelainwhich would not be possible to complete inside the mouth. Because of the expansion properties, the relatively similar material costs, and the aesthetic benefits, many patients choose to have their crown fabricated with gold.
