3 Things To Keep In Mind When It Comes To Tooth Loss

Many people would prefer not to think about tooth loss. After all, if you are keeping up with regular brushing, and your teeth look good, you may feel that this is a remote risk. That being said, you can do a better job protecting yourself against tooth loss if you understand what can cause it.

Answering Questions You Might Have About Dental Crowns

What makes a problem serious enough to require having a dental crown placed on your tooth? For some cavities, a dental filling will be enough support. However, larger cavities can demand more protection for your tooth than you should trust to a filling. Instead, your dentist will place a crown. After preparing the tooth, a crown will fit over it completely. Once it is in place, this restoration will be responsible for handling biting and chewing pressures that are exerted throughout the day. Your crown can last for many years when you practice proper oral care. Because there are life-like materials that can be used for their construction, you can preserve the appearance of your smile after you receive it. (more…)
