If you routinely make an effort to avoid biting or chewing food with a particular tooth, you may be creating new oral health problems. In the process of working around a problem tooth, you can put excessive strain on surrounding teeth, and even cause stress for your jaw joints. Let your dentist know if you are experiencing prolonged tooth pain or sensitivity. This could be a symptom of a cavity, or an indication of physical trauma. A dental crown can protect your tooth, and address any cosmetic concerns that resulted from an ongoing problem. Because your dentist relies on CEREC technology, it is possible to have that crown after just one appointment!
Using A CEREC Crown To Address A Problem Tooth
CEREC crowns eliminate the inconvenient delay in restorative dental work that many patients have to endure. Rather than waiting for a dental lab to construct your restoration, your dentist will use equipment at the office to create your crown. Because CEREC crowns are made from life-like dental ceramic, you can leave your dentist’s office with confidence in your dental function, and your appearance.
Replacing A Tooth With An Implant-Supported Prosthetic
If you are struggling with compromised dental functions because of tooth loss, or if your problem tooth cannot be saved, your dentist may recommend a dental implant. A dental implant gives you a prosthetic that is secured to your jawbone. This provides remarkable stability, so you can bite and chew normally. You can also rely on your implant to support the health of your jawbone. Without that implant, the bone around your absent tooth can lose support due to lack of proper nutrient flow.
