If You Need A Crown This Probably Is The Best Choice

Getting a crown has long been known to be a two-visit dental experience. Many people have no idea that this is not the case with same day crowns. For our lucky clients, getting a crown just takes one visit!

The Old Fashion Two-Visit Way

At the very first appointment, impressions are taken of the tooth and the impression is sent to a laboratory so that your long-term crown can be made. Many people do not like the goopy impression materials that can make them gag and that takes up to 5 minutes in their mouth to set.

Then your tooth is shaved down so that your crown can be put on top of it. Then you get a short-term crown cemented over the shaved tooth to hold you over until your long-term crown shows up from the lab. Then later, you have to go back in to the dentist, have the short-term crown taken out and the new crown positioned on your tooth

With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration finished in simply one visit. We will create and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office.

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 brought on 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 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, often 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 between teeth, etc. There is no one solution that is right for all cases. Often a plastic mouthpiece is utilized to prevent clenching or grinding that is adding to the issue. If unattended and taken to extremes, surgery may be required to repair a terribly damaged joint.
