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

Crowns are normally used to fix a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are frequently used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a broken tooth from becoming worse, connect bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is in jeopardy 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 usually 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 special laboratory, which makes a custom-designed crown. In many cases, a temporary crown is applied until the permanent crown is ready. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are in some cases mistaken as veneers, but they are rather different. Veneers are generally applied only to fairly little locations.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown could last approximately eight years or longer. It is very important to floss in the location of the crown to prevent excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.

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

Today's Topic Will Be:

Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal)

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 find issues early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also trigger the nerve to be damaged to the point it needs root canal treatment. As soon as this takes place, the pulp ends up being 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 recover by itself. It can even damage the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and might be really uncomfortable. Signs that the pulp has actually become infected might include sensitivity to hot/cold or sugary foods, pain, swelling, discomfort to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. In some cases, however, no signs are apparent and the individual is unaware of any problem up until a checkup.

A root canal is then carried out to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. Once the infection is dealt with, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any additional infection. Generally a core build-up and crown is recommended for recovering a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
