DENTAL IMPLANTS IN ONE DAY



Updated On Tuesday, July 17, 2018 01:09:18 AM

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

Crowns are normally used to restore a tooth's function and look following a restorative treatment such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth needs to be removed, crowns are frequently 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 has to be brought back to its natural look.

Treatments

A tooth must generally 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 unique lab, which manufactures a custom-made crown. In some cases, a temporary crown is used till the permanent crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are sometimes mistaken as veneers, but they are quite different. Veneers are usually applied just to relatively little areas.

Caring For Your Crowns

With appropriate care, a good quality crown might last up to eight years or longer. It is very important to floss in the area of the crown to avoid 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 even damage the crown.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental issues.

Detecting problems with x-rays before they end up being problems can save you money in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive, pricey treatments or surgeries. X-rays are mainly utilized to identify:

  • Cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth).

  • Impacted teeth.

  • Teeth that are still coming in.

  • Tumors, both cancerous and non-cancerous.

  • Internal tooth decay.



Most dentists use digital x-rays, which have numerous advantages over conventional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays enable us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from conventional dental x-rays. The worry of direct exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.

Big on-screen X-rays make patient communication more efficient. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and properly.

Digital radiography has greatly improved the practice of dentistry. It enables the patient and the physician to see pictures of the teeth in higher resolution on a big format for much easier detection of issues, all while reducing the radiation exposure to the patient. The process we use further defines the radiograph, leading to clinically meaningful images that are sharp, detailed and rich in contrast.

Images are available instantly after exposure, removing the wait and effort spent establishing and mounting x-rays. If an image has to be retaken, it can be done right away. Digital format also allows us to send out and get your images electronically for consultation that can be presented to you quickly.
