Dental Restoration Procedures
There are several dental restoration procedures, depending on the state of the patient’s teeth, a crown, dental implants, prosthetics, braces and more.
Crowns and Braces- when a tooth is damaged, crowning the tooth will protect it from further damage. Usually, crowns are placed when teeth are broken or stained, or following a root canal. The crowns are fabricated from porcelain or metal, and with proper care are known for longevity. The treatment has several steps; firstly, a temporary crown in placed to protect the tooth until the final restoration is complete. Secondly, the permanent implant is fabricated using a dental impression of the damaged tooth. Lastly, the permanent implant replaces the temporary crown.
Dental Implants and Prosthetics- prosthetics are dentures rely on bonding or clasping to secure them to the teeth. Dental implants could also be performed when the roots of the teeth are missing or for supporting the dentures. Dental implants are often used to secure and attach the dentures, and contribute to the dentures’ performing as regular teeth.
Upkeep following a Dental Restoration
An important detail that the dentist will explain is the behavior required from the patient following dental restoration treatments. Although the anesthetization dissipates after two hours, during the twenty-four hours following the treatment one must pay attention to the food and drink consumed to avoid discoloration and infection. After a dental restoration, it is recommended to eat natural ingredients, not containing food coloring.
