DID YOU KNOW THAT A DENTAL CROWN CAN PREVENT TOOTH EXTRACTION?

Dentist Westmont

Our minimally invasive dentists want to save your natural tooth structure when possible. So, for extensively damaged, worn-down, or decayed teeth, many general dentists look to dental crowns to save teeth from extraction. Keeping the tooth root and as much natural structure intact is better than pulling a tooth because tooth roots preserve the jawbone through complex biological processes that cannot be recreated without a dental implant.

HOW IT WORKS

Fortunately, it’s relatively quick to place a dental crown. It should take no more than two visits at our Westmont dental office to complete the entire process and guarantee a perfect fit:

BEFORE

Dr. Sana Ahmed or Dr. Juned Mohammed will closely examine your affected tooth with a visual exam and digital x-rays to determine how damaged or decayed it is.

DURING

If they determine that a dental crown is the best course of action, they’ll prepare the tooth by removing decay, shaving the natural tooth crown, and performing root canal therapy (if needed). Then, our team member will take take digital impressions of your tooth so we can send them to our laboratory for fabrication.

When the crown comes back from the lab, we will call you back for fitting and cementation to ensure that the tooth crown looks and feels great.

AFTER

Now that Dr. Ahmed or Dr. Mohammed has placed your dental crown, it pays to take care of it with the utmost respect. Although the crown cannot experience tooth decay, the underlying tissues and root canal can.

It’s wise to keep the crown and surrounding teeth clean with twice daily brushing and basic dental cleanings. Additionally, we suggest increasing your flossing frequency (especially around the tooth crown). This habit helps prevent food and germ accumulation where the crown meets the gum line.

WHAT ISSUES CAN DENTAL CROWNS SOLVE?

Tooth crowns are a comprehensive treatment and can:

  •  Protect or restore a broken, weak, or worn-down tooth
  •  Support a tooth when a dental fillinginlay, or onlay does not suffice
  •  Hold a dental bridge in place
  •  Cover dental implants or imperfect teeth
