ONE ON FOUR DENTAL IMPLANTS



Updated On Sunday, January 20, 2019 02:54:53 AM

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

Crowns are usually used to bring back a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has ended up being so advanced that big portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid 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 an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be brought back to its natural look.

Procedures

A tooth should usually be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made from the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent to a unique lab, which makes a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is applied till the long-term crown is ready. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are sometimes mistaken as veneers, but they are fairly different. Veneers are generally applied just to fairly small areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With appropriate care, a good quality crown might last as much as 8 years or longer. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to prevent excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.

Specific habits such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) considerably reduce the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, or even harm the crown.

Today's Discussion Is About:

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 find issues early). Often deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also cause the nerve to be harmed to the point it needs root canal therapy. When this takes place, 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 needs to be treated, and can not recover on its own. It can even weaken the whole immune system. This is dangerous, and may be really painful. Symptoms that the pulp has actually become infected may include sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes, however, no signs appear and the person is unaware of any issue till a checkup.

A root canal is then performed to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and decontaminate the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to remove the tooth. As soon as the infection is fixed, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any more infection. Normally a core build-up and crown is suggested for bring back a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
