All porcelain: If your tooth is in need of a crown, then the best type of material to use for esthetics is all porcelain. In the past, all porcelain crowns were primarily used in the anterior but now with high strength porcelain such as e.Max & zirconia, many dentists are placing them in the posterior as well. Your dentist will help you pick which crown is best for your particular mouth & your desired goals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See Prosthodontist: If you have the option based on bone and location, forget the bridge and go for the implant. Far superior and longer lasting treatment. Independent of other teeth and helps preserve existing bone. At 45 you need 50 years of service. Bridge would need to be replaced on average every 10-15 years.

What is the likelihood that an installation of a dental implant will collapse a bony wall of an adjacent tooth?
Implant = Prosthesis: The inflatable penile prosthesis (ipp) is an excellent solution for men with severe e.D. That does not respond to other measures. The implant surgery takes about an hour, is usually done as an outpatient, and has a pretty brief recovery. All surgery has risks, so do some research and find someone with some experience placing implants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Consult your dentist: It is important to discuss the individual patient's needs for the type of crown with the dentist. Needs vary based on not only aesthetics of the smile but also on the function of the tooth involved. The health of the gingiva or gum may play a role as well as the height of the remaining tooth. I work with dental colleagues in the treatment of cleft lip and palate patients but am not a dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are the chances of limb replacement? If not, how about the lengthening of a shorter residual limb to improve socket fit and use of prosthesis?
Unlikely: A limb replacement is unlikely. Hand transplant are being done but few are good candidates. Limb lengthening is possible in very select cases (usually done in the arm if possible-not done in the leg). There are many things that can be done to improve prosthetic fit based on the amputation level and length. ...Read more
What is the survivability of a molar when one root has a caries preventing restoration of the root? In other words, what is the viablility of a molar
Generall poor: if a tooth can't be restored, it can't be saved, regardless of having root canal or not! That being said,often times periodontal surgery and/ or root amputation can allow certain teeth to be saved after advanced decay removal.

Appearance/cost: Dental implants give an excellent result in appearance. They can look very similar to your original tooth. Also they do not require any special care like a bridge or false teeth may require. The drawback has to do with cost which is quite high and the time it takes to do an effective implant. If you get an implant make sure that you see a dentist that does implants regularly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
So many variables: Like most dental issues, the public is often confused. "big overjet" implies much more than what is involved in managing issues with a single tooth.

What are the pros and cons to having a 1 or 2 part implant (i look at the implant crown as being the 3rd part)? Cost difference, etc.?
Outcome, forget cost: In my opinion, except in very straightforward cases, it is important for both the restorative dentist & the surgeon to work together in planning the case from start to finish. When the abutment is placed at the time of surgery, you are stuck with the standard abutment "guestimate". When the implant is fabricated after the fixture is placed, a custom abutment can fabricated from an impression. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
