COVID 19 TREATMENT UPDATE.
(28th June 2020)

𝓣𝓱π“ͺ𝓷𝓴 𝔂𝓸𝓾
This is a massive thank you for all our loyal patients for their support over the last few months. It has been a difficult time for everyone and we are so grateful for your understanding.
You may have read or seen that many practices are charging an extra cost for the increase Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). At the Beeches Dental will not be putting any extra costs on to our patients who have continued with their plans and will not be increasing the prices of the plans for at least 12 months
At the moment the Practice is slowly returning to normal but due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic restrictions we will be undertaking only pre-booked dental appointments.
Please note at this time we are unable to book routine appointments and therefore only contact us if you have an urgent dental need or other enquiry.
Over the coming days and weeks, we will be contacting every patient who had an appointment during lockdown or is due one to rearrange these appointments, due to the continued restrictions, they will be at a set time and be longer than usual.
We thank you all for your support and understanding at this difficult time

Simon and all at the Beeches.

CROWN AND BRIDGES

Dental crownsCrowns

Crowns are what were previously called "caps". They are constructed to restore teeth that are heavily filled, discoloured, root filled, broken or malaligned. The crowning of a tooth involves removal of a certain amount of tooth substance and then the fitting of a custom laboratory made crown a week or so later. Crowns can be made for all teeth and are constructed from porcelain, gold alloy or a combination of both. Crowns can improve the appearance of a tooth and are stronger than large fillings.

Bridges

Bridges are fixed restorations that fill the gaps left by missing or extracted teeth. They are not removed for cleaning unlike dentures and are cemented onto one or two adjacent teeth.

There are two main types of bridge

Conventional bridge- artificial tooth or teeth (Pontic crown/s) are fixed to adjacent teeth by means of retaining crowns. This means one or more adjacent teeth have to be prepared for the retaining crowns. There are three types

  • Cantilever: cemented to one adjacent tooth.
  • Fixed-Fixed: cemented to one tooth either side of the gap.
  • Fixed- Moveable: similar to the fixed-fixed but have a stress breaker i.e. shock absorber.

Adhesive Bridge- these bridges involve little or no preparation of the adjacent teeth. The artificial tooth (Pontic) is cemented behind the adjacent tooth/ teeth by means of a gold alloy "wing"
