DENTAL IMPLANT IN ONE DAY



Updated On Monday, November 19, 2018 11:04:18 AM

Crowns are synthetic caps, generally made of a material like porcelain, put on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are usually used to fix a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has actually become so advanced that big parts of the tooth must be taken out, crowns are frequently used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a broken tooth from worsening, attach bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is at risk of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as a visual use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.

Treatments

A tooth should normally be decreased in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a unique lab, which manufactures a custom-made crown. In many cases, a short-term crown is used up until the permanent crown is ready. Long-term crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, but they are rather different. Veneers are normally applied just to fairly little areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown might last up to eight years or longer. It is crucial to floss in the area of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Certain habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly reduce the life of a crown. Furthermore, consuming hard foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, and even damage the crown.

Today's Topic Is:

Temporal-Mandibular Joint

TMJ means temporal-mandibular joint. Temporal, as in temple area of skull; mandibular as in mandible, or lower jaw; joint as in it's where the head and jaw meet. Issues in this joint might be caused by a misalignment of the teeth, trauma, or excess muscle tension. Aside from the two bones that meet there, cartilage buffers them and five muscles are associated with the area. If something fails a good deal of trouble can result.

Problems in this area can trigger:

  • Earaches.

  • Headaches.

  • Pain in the jaw muscles.

  • Trouble in opening and closing the mouth.

  • Soreness in the area, in some cases extending to the face.

  • Clicking or popping of the jaw.


Dental treatments for the condition can include replacing missing teeth, moving teeth, adjusting the bite, filling spaces between teeth, etc. There is no one solution that is right for all cases. In some cases a plastic mouth piece is utilized to prevent clenching or grinding that is adding to the issue. If unattended and required to extremes, surgery might be needed to fix a terribly damaged joint.
