PERMANENT TEETH IN A DAY



Updated On Tuesday, September 18, 2018 07:07:34 PM

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

Crowns are generally used to fix a tooth's function and look following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has actually become so advanced that huge portions of the tooth must be eliminated, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

Crowns are also used to prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, attach 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 needs to be brought back to its natural appearance.

Procedures

A tooth must usually 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 out to a special laboratory, which manufactures a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a temporary crown is used until the permanent crown is prepared. Permanent crowns are cemented in place.

Crowns are often mistaken as veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are typically applied only to fairly little locations.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown might last up to eight years or longer. It is very important to floss in the location of the crown to avoid excess plaque or collection of debris around the restoration.

Certain behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) significantly reduce the life of a crown. Furthermore, eating brittle foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, or even damage the crown.

Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is typically painless, you might not know you have it. Also called periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.

Here are couple warning signs that may indicate an issue:

  • gums that bleed too quickly.

  • red, inflamed, sore gums.

  • gums that have retreated from the teeth.

  • consistent foul breath or bad taste.

  • permanent teeth that are separating or loose.

  • any difference in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.

  • any change in the fit of partial dentures.


There are numerous aspects that enhance the risk of establishing gum disease consisting of smoking, pregnancy, and diabetes. It is very important to go to your dentist if you think you have gum disease because the faster you treat it the better.

The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums might end up being red, inflamed and bleed easily. At this phase, the disease is still reversible and can normally be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily flossing and brushing.

Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can cause the loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth and it may end up being more serious in time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and begin moving around in your mouth. It normally becomes worse slowly, but there can be periods of fast progression.

Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive kind of periodontal disease that happens in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features consist of rapid loss of bone and tissue and may take place in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth.

Research between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies show that severe gum disease may be related to numerous other health conditions such as stroke or diabetes.

Routine dental checkups and periodontal examinations are extremely important. The treatment methods that most dental professionals diagnose will rely on the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed. Good dental care in your home is essential to help keep gum disease from becoming more severe or recurring.
