Cover-Up at the Dental Office: Replacing Dental Crowns and Bridges

Are you looking for solutions to your teeth problems? Would you want to try everything possible that you can do to save your damaged teeth? If yes, then there’s no other place to turn to but your dentist’s office. Here, you should be able to find various options and alternatives, and choose the one that will work best for your situation.

Of course, the very first thing you can expect to undergo is a thorough assessment of your oral health. Once that has been completed your dentist will have a clear picture of the problems and what is causing any pain or discomfort that you have. At that point, your dentist will be able to recommend the right solutions that will give you the best possible long-term outcome.

Available Options

For teeth that are damaged but still possess a sound structure that can be used to build up and save the tooth, crowns and bridges are among the most common recommendations made by dentists today. It’s not just a simple matter of capping the teeth with heavy-duty, oral-friendly materials, though. In the case of dental crown placements, you may still need a root canal treatment first to make sure that your tooth does not continue to decay beneath the crown. The dental crown will basically seal off your tooth, so you want to be sure that it doesn’t have any bacteria or other other conditions which would cause the to to need further attention down the line.

Preparations and Application

Once you get the green light from your doctor, your tooth will then be fitted for the cap. You may be fitted with it at your next appointment, but in the event that it doesn’t fit as perfectly as it should, be prepared for the possibility of an additional visit if adjustments need to be made to accomplish the perfect fit. There’s nothing more important to not fit when it comes to avoiding additional problems with that too caused by infection due to a poorly fit. A poor fit would also hinder the crown from functioning as it should as part of the bite which is a situation to be avoided.

Another reason why you should only in trust your oral care to an experienced and reliable dentist. Your oral health is much too precious to be left in the hands of someone not properly qualified to handle all aspects of your oral care.
