Why Pick Same Day Crowns?

It is crucial for a individual to have a strong and healthy set of teeth. Nevertheless, there are some cases where dental cavity formation is inevitable. It is frequently triggered by the individual's diet, habits and hygiene. Cavities that are not fixed early may trigger substantial damage to the tooth's enamel which may require a dental crown to restore its natural appearance and function.

A dental crown is a cap shaped like a tooth which is used to cover the tooth that has undergone extensive damage brought on by dental cavities. Getting it typically needs two dental appointments. During the first visit, your damaged tooth is cleaned and the decayed part is removed. The dental practitioner will then get the impression of your tooth that required the crown and will send it to a dental laboratory where standard dental crowns were made. It could be made from a metal, ceramic or porcelain material. Only during the second appointment, your custom-fitted dental crown is cemented to your broken tooth.

With the improvement in dental innovation, the procedure of getting and wearing a dental crown has been made readily available. Dentists use the new technology in making inlays/onlays, crowns and veneers. After your damaged tooth is prepared, they will use an intraoral camera that will take the picture of your affected tooth and have it submitted to a computer. It will use a computer-aided design in taking the digital impression of your teeth and the impression is sent to the computer-aided manufacturing machine which will mill a color-matched ceramic block to your same day crowns. Choosing a same day crown over a traditional dental crown has its advantages and downsides.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Due to the fact that gum disease is typically pain-free, you might not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of germs that is continuously forming on our teeth.

Some warning signs that may indicate an issue:

  • gums that bleed easily.

  • red, inflamed, sore gums.

  • gums that have pulled away from the teeth.

  • consistent foul breath or bad taste.

  • permanent teeth that are separating or loose.

  • any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.

  • any change in the fit of partial dentures.


There are many aspects that increase the risk of developing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.

The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed quickly. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can generally be removed by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.

Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it might become more extreme over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It generally worsens slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression.

Aggressive periodontitis is a highly damaging type of gum disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.

Research in between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some research studies suggest that severe periodontal disease might be related to a number of other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.

Regular dental examinations and gum examinations are crucial. The treatment techniques that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the kind of disease and how far the condition has advanced. Excellent dental care at home is necessary to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
