DENTAL CROWNS



Updated On Friday, February 22, 2019 03:09:50 PM

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

Crowns are typically used to bring back 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 large parts of the tooth should be taken out, crowns are typically used to fix the tooth.

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

Procedures

A tooth must normally be reduced 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-designed crown. In many cases, a short-term crown is used up until the permanent crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are often mistaken as veneers, but they are fairly different. Veneers are normally applied just to fairly small areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

With proper care, a good quality crown might last approximately 8 years or longer. It is very important to floss in the location of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.

Particular habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) substantially shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, and even break the crown.




Same Day Crowns Restorations

CEREC means CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of locations needing restoration and produce the proper restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer need to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the laboratory to make your crown.

CEREC can be used in a full range of indications: partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays.

Today's Conversation Has To Do With:

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. Problems in this joint may be brought on by a misalignment of the teeth, injury, or excess muscle tension. Aside from the two bones that meet there, cartilage buffers them and five muscles are involved in the area. If something goes wrong a good deal of trouble can result.

Problems in this area can cause:

  • Earaches.

  • Headaches.

  • Pain in the jaw muscles.

  • Trouble in opening and closing the mouth.

  • Soreness in the area, often 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. Sometimes a plastic mouth piece is used to prevent clenching or grinding that is contributing to the issue. If untreated and required to extremes, surgery might be required to fix a severely damaged joint.
