Why Select Single Visit Crowns?

It is crucial for a person to have a strong and healthy set of teeth. Nevertheless, there are some cases where dental cavity development is unavoidable. It is frequently caused by the person's diet, habits and hygiene. Cavities that are not managed early might cause extensive damage to the tooth's enamel which might require a dental crown to restore its natural look and function.

A dental crown is a cap formed like a tooth which is used to cover the tooth that has undergone extensive damage caused by dental cavities. Getting it usually needs two dental appointments. Throughout the very first appointment, your broken tooth is cleaned and the decayed part is removed. The dentist will then get the impression of your tooth that required the crown and will send it to a dental lab where standard dental crowns were made. It could be made from a metal, ceramic or porcelain material. Only during the 2nd visit, your custom-fitted dental crown is cemented to your affected tooth.

With the advancement in dental technology, the process of getting and wearing a dental crown has been made easily offered. Dentists use the new technology in making inlays/onlays, crowns and veneers. After your broken tooth is prepared, they will use an intraoral camera that will take the picture of your broken tooth and have it uploaded to a computer. It will use a computer-aided design in taking the digital impression of your teeth and the impression is transferred to the computer-aided manufacturing device 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.

Root Canal (Endodontic Treatment)

Root canal treatment (also described 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 identify issues early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also cause the nerve to be harmed to the point it needs root canal therapy. As soon as this occurs, the pulp becomes infected, and can even extend through the root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone (this is an abscess).

By the time the pulp is infected it has to be treated, and can not recover on its own. It can even weaken the whole immune system. This is dangerous, and may be extremely uncomfortable. Symptoms that the pulp has become infected might include sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, discomfort, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Often, however, no signs appear and the person is unaware of any issue until a checkup.

A root canal is then carried out to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and sanitize the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. When the infection is fixed, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any further infection. Normally a core build-up and crown is suggested for bring back a tooth that has had root canal therapy.
