Dental crowns/caps are artificial tooth placed on top of the Root canal treated tooth in order to protect the weak and fragile natural tooth.
Dental bridges are a method of replacing a single/multiple missing tooth by reducing the size of the adjusant healthy teeth
Missing teeth can have an impact on your look, and you may experience discomfort and become self-conscious when smiling. Crowns and bridges are used to improve the appearance of your teeth.
Dr. Samuel Dental, Thoothukodi, we ensure the best materials are used for crowns and bridges treatment.
Bridges can last ten years with proper oral hygiene and maintenance. Your bridges and crowns, like any other dental treatment / procedure, will undergo natural wear and tear from eating food and grinding teeth.
Whether you have a permanent or temporary crown or bridge, you must follow certain diet restrictions. Floss with caution. Chewing gum should be avoided. Brush your teeth twice a day. Avoid drinking anything that is aerated.
It will take the patient two weeks to adjust to the heaviness of the crown.
We will try to complete the entire treatment within 24 to 48 hours.
First, an anaesthesia is used to numb the area. The teeth are trimmed so that a restoration can be placed over them. After that, an impression is taken of the treated teeth as well as the teeth in the opposing jaw in order to achieve the proper bite. These imprints are scanned and designed to be milled. The dental crown/bridges treatment are sintered and ready to be fixed to your natural teeth. We try to ensure the fit is correct and the bite is proper and they are permanently affixed to your teeth.
