IMPLANTS FOR TEETH



Updated On Friday, January 18, 2019 09:33:11 AM

Crowns are synthetic caps, generally made of a material like porcelain, put 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 degeneration in a tooth has become so advanced that big portions of the tooth should be taken out, crowns are often used to fix the tooth.

Crowns are also used to avoid a split tooth from worsening, 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 restored to its natural look.

Treatments

A tooth must normally 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 produces a custom-made crown. In some cases, a short-term crown is used up until the long-term crown is prepared. Long-term crowns are sealed in place.

Crowns are sometimes mistaken as veneers, however they are fairly different. Veneers are normally applied just to fairly small areas.

Taking care of Your Crowns

With correct care, a good quality crown might last approximately 8 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.

Specific behaviors such as jaw clenching or bruxism (teeth grinding) considerably shorten the life of a crown. Moreover, consuming hard foods, ice or hard candy can jeopardize the adhesion of the crown, or even damage the crown.




Same Day Tooth Restorations

CEREC stands for CERamic REConstruction and is a tool in our office that can take exact digital imagery of locations requiring restoration and produce the suitable restoration on the spot.

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to produce your crown.

CEREC can be used for a wide scope of indications: onlays, partial crowns, posterior crowns, anterior crowns, veneers and inlays.

Today We Will Be Discussing:

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. Problems in this joint might be triggered by a misalignment of the teeth, trauma, or excess muscle tension. 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 or soreness 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 consist of replacing missing teeth, moving teeth, adjusting the bite, filling gaps in between teeth, etc. There is no one solution that is right for all cases. Sometimes a plastic mouthpiece is utilized to prevent clenching or grinding that is contributing to the issue. If unattended and required to extremes, surgery may be required to repair a terribly damaged joint.
