Loss of a crown, post or bridge

The visible part of the teeth, above the gum line, is called the natural dental crown.

However, when the natural dental root has been severely damaged, an artificial dental crown can be placed in the mouth to preserve the natural dental root. Artificial dental crowns can be simple or, in the event of complete decay of the natural dental crown, can be combined with a post (metal rod). This is known as a pivot.

Similarly, when one or more teeth are missing, bridges over natural teeth can be made to fill the gap. These are attached to the teeth adjacent to the gap.
