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

Crowns are normally used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that huge parts of the tooth should be eliminated, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a split tooth from worsening, connect bridges, cover implants, or an existing filling is at risk of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve as a visual use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth should typically 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 to a special lab, which makes a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is applied up until the permanent crown is ready. Permanent crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are typically applied just to fairly small locations.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With appropriate care, a good quality crown could last as much as eight years or longer. It is extremely important to floss in the area of the crown to prevent excess plaque or collection of particles around the restoration.

Certain habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) considerably shorten the life of a crown. Furthermore, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or perhaps harm the crown.

TMJ (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 triggered by a misalignment of the teeth, injury, or excess muscle stress. Aside from the two bones that meet there, cartilage buffers them and 5 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 or soreness in opening and closing the mouth.

  • Soreness in the area, sometimes extending to the face.

  • Clicking or popping of the jaw.


Dental treatments for the condition can consist of replacing missing teeth, moving teeth, adjusting the bite, filling gaps in between teeth, etc. There is no one solution that is right for all cases. In some cases a plastic mouthpiece is utilized to prevent clenching or grinding that is contributing to the problem. If untreated and required to extremes, surgery might be required to fix a badly damaged joint.
