We can’t deny that teeth plays an important role in ones’ confidence. Having a straight align teeth will give us confidence to freely smile, talk and meet up with other people. This is the reason why this patient came to see me last week. He…
Amy had her tooth removed a long time ago and was concerned about her teeth moving due to the space.
Though Amy was on a tight budget, thus I recommended that she went with a semi-permanent option of a fibre reinforced composite (FRC) bridge, before deciding on a more permanent solution such as a Conventional Bridge or an Implant.
So after comparing the pros and cons of the treatment with a conventional bridge, I proceeded with doing the necessary treatments to get her tooth restored.
As a brief; the pros of having a FRC Bridge are:
1. Restoring the missing tooth
2. Reducing the chances of the space to close or adjacent teeth to tilt.
3. Restoring function and chewing efficiency
After removal of the decayed tooth structure, I proceeded to build up the bridge sequentially with the fibre strands placed across the 2 adjacent teeth.
It took me a total of 1 hour to clean, restore and polish up the FRC bridge. Amy was thrilled to say the least, when I showed her the pictures of my work and when I handed her the mirror.
A gentle reminder was given to Amy that the treatment is meant to be a semi-permanent treatment as she would need a more stable and permanent solution such as a conventional bridge or an implant.
