DENTAL IMPLANTS IN ONE DAY



Updated On Tuesday, November 20, 2018 09:14:12 PM

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

Crowns are generally used to fix a tooth's function and look following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that big parts of the tooth needs to be removed, crowns are often used to restore 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 an aesthetic use, and are used when a discolored or stained tooth has to be restored to its natural appearance.

Treatments

A tooth should typically 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 to a special laboratory, which produces a custom-made crown. In some cases, a temporary crown is applied till the permanent crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often confused with veneers, however they are rather different. Veneers are usually applied just to relatively little areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

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

Particular behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) substantially shorten the life of a crown. Furthermore, consuming brittle foods, ice or hard candy can compromise the adhesion of the crown, or even harm the crown.

Today's Conversation Is About:

Temporal-Mandibular Joint

TMJ stands for 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. Issues in this joint may be brought on by a misalignment of the teeth, trauma, or excess muscle stress. Aside from the two bones that meet there, cartilage buffers them and five muscles are involved in the area. If something goes wrong a good deal of trouble can result.

Problems in this area can trigger:

  • Earaches.

  • Headaches.

  • Pain in the jaw muscles.

  • Trouble 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 include replacing missing teeth, moving teeth, adjusting the bite, filling gaps between teeth, and so on. 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 adding to the problem. If untreated and required to extremes, surgery might be needed to repair a severely damaged joint.
