Different Types of Dental Crowns in India

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It covers the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength and to improve its appearance. Depending on your habits and the condition of your gums, there can be some drawbacks. Dental crowns cover the entire visible surface area of an affected tooth and add strength, durability, and stability to the tooth. Approximately 85% of dental crowns and bridges are metal-based and 15% ceramic-based.

There are various situations that would require the placement of a crown, such as root canals, lost fillings, dental bridges, decay below a filling, and chipping and cracking of tooth enamel. The cracking or breakage of teeth can be caused by age, tooth decay, fillings and an improper bite.

 

 

A dental crown may be needed to:

  • To protect a weak tooth (eg, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of teeth left
  • To Support a tooth that has been badly damaged by tooth decay
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To Protect a worn tooth
  • To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover a tooth that has been endodontically treated (had a root canal)

The Dental Crown Procedure

Depending on the extent of the decay or damage to the tooth, the dentist may perform a root canal before placing a crown on the tooth. If this is the case, the dentist may need to build a foundation for the crown after the root canal has been performed, also known as a “post-and-core” foundation.

Before the crown can be placed on the tooth, the dentist must file the tooth down to make room for it. Then an impression of the tooth and the surrounding teeth will be made. While the crown is being created, a temporary acrylic crown will be placed on the tooth.

When the permanent crowns are ready, the temporary crowns are replaced at a separate visit. The crown will last anywhere from seven to 40 years.

Cosmetic Dental Implants in India

A dental implant is a “root” device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth. It can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures. They can also be used as anchorage for orthodontic tooth movement. The use of dental implants permits undirectional tooth movement without reciprocal action.

Dental implants are made of a variety of materials, such as titanium, aluminum oxide and surgical stainless steel. The devices are firmly attached to the jaw bone through surgery and implant posts provide a comfortable, stable support on which artificial teeth can be secured.

There are two basic categories of implants:

1) An Endosteal implant is placed directly into the bone, like natural tooth roots and can be used for many purposes. A single pin can be inserted through an existing tooth to strengthen and stabilize it. Other styles can provide an anchor for one or more artificial teeth.

2) A Subperiosteal implant consists of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, the frame becomes fixed to the jawbone. Posts, which are attached to the frame, protrude through the gums. As with Endosteal implants, artificial teeth are then mounted to the posts.

The main advantages of Dental Implants are:

  1. Implants restore proper chewing function and so you can enjoy foods previously too “difficult” to eat.
  2. You feel confident that your replacement teeth won’t move or loosen.
  3. You regain the closest thing to the look, feel and function of your natural teeth.
  4. Forget about unsightly partial denture clasps which place damaging pressure on remaining natural teeth.
  5. Eliminate irritated and painful gums.
  6. Improve your speech by eliminating or reducing the “fullness” of full or partial dentures.
  7. Replace missing teeth with the look and feel of natural teeth without having to “cut down” healthy teeth.
  8. Dental implants help stop the progressive bone loss and shrinkage of your jawbone by “mimicking” the roots of natural teeth.
  9. Dental implants are clinically proven with a success rate in excess of 90%.
