A Removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.
Bite-wing x-rays detect decay between teeth and changes in the thickness of bone caused by gum disease. … Periapical x-rays show the whole tooth — from the crown, to beyond the root where the tooth attaches into the jaw.
A crown, sometimes known as dental cap, 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.
