DENTAL IMPLANTS IN A DAY REVIEWS

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

Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When degeneration in a tooth has ended up being so advanced that huge portions of the tooth needs to be eliminated, crowns are typically used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a split tooth from worsening, attach 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 has to be brought back to its natural look.

Treatments

A tooth should normally 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 out to a special lab, which makes a custom-made crown. In many cases, a temporary crown is applied till the permanent crown is prepared. Permanent crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are in some cases mistaken as veneers, however they are quite different. Veneers are typically applied only to fairly little areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

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

Certain 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, and even harm the crown.

Today We Will Be Talking About:

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. Issues in this joint might be caused by a misalignment of the teeth, trauma, or excess muscle tension. Aside from the two bones that meet there, cartilage buffers them and 5 muscles are associated with 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 in opening and closing the mouth.

  • Soreness in the area, in some cases 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. Often a plastic mouth piece is utilized to prevent clenching or grinding that is contributing to the issue. If neglected and required to extremes, surgery might be needed to repair a badly damaged joint.
