Is a crown and a cap the same thing?
A cap is the same thing as a crown. Crowns are a beneficial way to restore your tooth. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling, be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth, or even restore one that has already been broken. Their durability along with esthetics make crowns a great choice for restorations.
What is a tooth crown? (or What is a crown on tooth?)
A crown is a tooth-colored covering for a tooth that may need more support than a filling. Often crowns are used for teeth that have large fillings, protect a root canaled tooth, or even restore a tooth that has already been broken.
How can I replace a missing tooth?
We offer many ways to replace a missing tooth. A dental implant can be placed for a single tooth and/or multiple tooth loss. Other options would be dental bridges which incorporate the surrounding teeth or a removable appliance.
How often should I get my teeth cleaned?
The health of your gums determines how often you should have your teeth cleaned. Typically a healthy adult should have their teeth cleaned every 6 months.
How do I get rid of a mouth sore?
There are different medications and home remedies that treat mouth sores. Keep the site as clean as possible to aid in the healing process. Our best advice would be to schedule a dental exam to make sure your mouth sore is just a mouth sore and nothing more.
What is a Deep Cleaning?
A deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, is a procedure used to treat Periodontal Disease. Root planing smoothes the tooth root and removes any tartar buildup to help the gums re-attach to the tooth.
What is a Root Canal?
Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. After we remove the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then a crown is placed over the tooth to help make it stronger. Most of the time, root canal therapy is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!
