TRENTON MI, July 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Booker Family Dentistry strives to help Trenton patients better understand when a dental crown restoration is needed. The dental experts at Booker Family Dentistry offer up-to-date information on dental crowns and when they are suitable for patients.
Dental crowns are used to help correct various conditions including discolored or badly shaped teeth, to cover an implant, to protect a weak tooth from breaking, or to restore a tooth that is already broken. At Booker Family Dentistry, Dr. Nicholas Booker's primary concern is to help keep a patient's teeth healthy and his or her smile bright, which a dental crown helps to complete.
Consultation and Treatment Planning
If tooth decay or damage is so extensive that veneers, direct composite bonding or other conservative treatments aren't viable treatment options - or if a patient has recently undergone root canal therapy - Dr. Booker will discuss the option of dental crowns. Part of the initial consultation with Trenton, MI dentist, Dr. Nicholas Booker, may involve taking impressions of the existing tooth, or teeth, as a basis for creating the shape and size of the restoration. Trenton dentist, Dr. Booker, will also plan out the patient's tooth preparation process, as well as any available options with regard to local anesthesia and sedation dentistry, if necessary.
Recovery and Aftercare
Once a dental crown is placed, Dr. Nicholas Booker will provide each patient with proper information about caring for the new restoration. In general, Dr. Booker emphasizes the importance of maintaining proper oral hygiene habits, which requires brushing the teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily. By practicing proper daily oral hygiene, patients will be removing plaque from the area where the crown meets the gum to further prevent dental decay and gum disease.
Additionally, Dr. Booker urges patients to avoid chewing hard foods, ice or other hard objects because this could damage the crown. Patients should also avoid biting their fingernails and grinding their teeth, as this can also significantly shorten the life span of a dental crown. Patients who do grind or clench their teeth might consider wearing a nighttime mouth guard to help protect the crown from any damage caused by clenching and grinding.
