A Few Advantages Of Getting A Same Day Crown

Crowns are a typical dental procedure that is often required when someone's tooth is broken or if the tooth has actually broken down to the point where a filling will not be effective.

Typical crowns are relatively inconvenient to get, however there is an alternative. Same-day crowns are a great choice since they are easier and lead to less discomfort:

A Lot Less Pain

A standard crown can lead to discomfort for a couple of reasons, however one of the greatest sources of discomfort and pain is a result of needing to get a short-term crown.

A temporary crown is used as a placeholder to safeguard your exposed tooth till your permanent crown can be delivered to your dental practitioner. This can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

The problem with a temporary crown is that they are not very strong, which means that they can break or come loose extremely easily.

A broken or loose temporary crown will expose your tooth to liquids and food, both which can trigger a fair bit of pain if they reach the exposed nerves underneath the short-term crown.

Another source of discomfort originates from a loose crown rubbing along your gums. This rubbing can get to the point where it can get quite agonizing and start to bleed, which also opens up the path for potential infections.

The good news is, a same-day crown will supply you with a permanent crown at the end of your first appointment to the dental practitioner.

This eliminates the need for a short-term crown, thus allowing you to avoid all the discomfort and pain.


Convenient

A traditional crown is not a very hassle-free procedure to have performed, mostly because it typically takes a minimum of two visits to complete.

If your short-term crown is broken or falls off, which is common, you will need to make another appointment to have it changed. This can be a big problem if you have a busy schedule on your hands, or if you have a job that prevents taking some time off in the middle of a hectic work day.

However, a same-day crown can be finished in a single day, with a single visit. This is made possible since lots of dental practitioners will purchase the equipment to make their own crowns, instead of having to order crowns from a dental lab.

This lets you prevent the trouble of having to possibly invest weeks and multiple visits to your dentist before the procedure is over and finished with.

Speak with your dentist and ask about the benefits provided by a same-day crown. A same-day crown can provide you with a hassle-free and relatively pain-free alternative to a traditional crown.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.

There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.

Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with appropriate home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.

Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:

  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.

  • Maintain facial shape.

  • Fill space of missing teeth.

  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

  • Restore your smile.


What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?

Getting a bridge usually needs two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next appointment.

At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.

You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.

Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?

This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.

It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
