Same Day Crowns

Same day crown technology plays a vital function in our practice. This amazing development in chair side dentistry provides us the tools to create, produce, and position crowns, inlays and onlays in a single visit.

The Same Day Crown Difference

The conventional method to a crown or inlay and onlay often needed a return appointment after the client waited (with a short-term restoration in the tooth) for about 2 weeks while the restoration was made in a different laboratory. Same day crown CAD/CAM innovation removes the wait!

How Do Same Day Crowns Work?

Same day crowns employ a special camera to take an precise photo of the damaged tooth. This optical impression is moved and shown on a color computer screen, where the dental practitioner uses CAD (computer-aided design) software to design the restoration.

Then CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) takes over and immediately mills the restoration while the client waits. Finally, the new restoration is bonded in place.

The entire process takes about one hour, and there are no bothersome temporaries or second visit needed!

Proven Technology

With twenty years of scientific research and more than 20 million restorations performed worldwide, same day crowns have proven to be a an effective, safe and hassle-free innovation that we are delighted to offer to our patients.

Today We Will Be Going Over:

Root Canal (Endodontic Treatment)

Root canal treatment (also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is required when a cavity is allowed, through neglect, to reach all the way to the root pulp. (Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and discover problems early). Sometimes deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also cause the nerve to be damaged to the point it requires root canal treatment. When this occurs, the pulp becomes infected, and can even extend through the root tip and start to eat away at the surrounding bone (this is an abscess).

By the time the pulp is infected it needs to be treated, and can not heal on its own. It can even damage the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and may be really agonizing. Symptoms that the pulp has ended up being infected may consist of sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. In some cases, however, no symptoms are apparent and the person is unaware of any issue until a checkup.

A root canal is then performed to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. When the infection is resolved, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any more infection. Usually a core build-up and crown is recommended for restoring a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
