Crowns are artificial caps, typically made of a product like porcelain, put on the top of a tooth.

Crowns are generally used to fix a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that huge portions of the tooth has to be eliminated, crowns are frequently used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a cracked tooth from worsening, connect bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as a visual use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth has to be restored to its natural appearance.

Treatments

A tooth must normally be decreased in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made from the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent out to a unique lab, which produces a custom-made crown. Sometimes, a temporary crown is used till the long-term crown is ready. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are in some cases mistaken as veneers, however they are rather different. Veneers are generally applied only to relatively small locations.

Caring For Your Crowns

With proper 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 avoid excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Specific habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly shorten the life of a crown. Furthermore, eating hard foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or perhaps damage the crown.

Today's Discussion Has To Do With:

Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal)

Root canal treatment (also described as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is essential 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). Often deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also trigger the nerve to be harmed to the point it requires root canal therapy. When this happens, 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 must be treated, and can not heal on its own. It can even deteriorate the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and may be extremely painful. Symptoms that the pulp has ended up being infected may consist of 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 symptoms are apparent and the individual is unaware of any problem until a checkup.

A root canal is then performed to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and sanitize the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. Once the infection is fixed, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any more infection. Usually a core build-up and crown is suggested for bring back a tooth that has actually had root canal treatment.
