There are many ways dentists can restore teeth prosthetically. Depending on its condition of relative integrity or more serious breakdown and the patient’s loss of other teeth, the practitioner can choose from a variety of quite different procedures ranging from the fabrication of a single ceramo-ceramic crown on a vital tooth to correction of considerable loss of teeth with an implant supported bridge. This paper will evaluate most of these treatment modalities and, in addition to purely prosthetic considerations, will discuss the integration into treatment of periodontal, implant, occlusal, and functional concepts.
