Don't Suffer With Hurting Teeth
There is no need to suffer with a damaged tooth. If your tooth is broken, chipped, or fractured, see Dickinson Dental as soon as possible. Otherwise, your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth. Our skilled doctors can repair your tooth using a variety of methods that will cater to your needs.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
A crown is sometimes termed a "cap" or "jacket." A crown will restore a large filling or a cracked tooth to its original size, shape and tooth color. A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more likely to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth.
A root canal may be needed if the decay has reached the tooth's nerve. Essentially, a root canal involves cleaning out a tooth's infected root, then filling and sealing the canal.
Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that uses a laser to re-contour the gum tissue. Crown lengthening can be performed on "gummy" smiles or when a tooth needs a crown but there is not enough healthy tooth above the gums.
If there is not enough tooth structure left for retention after your root canal procedure to support a crown, a post will be placed down the tooth root. Then a crown buildup will be made and placed around the post.
An incorrect bite may be the cause due to constant cranial muscle strain. Headaches from dental stress are a type of muscle tension headache.
