We would all like to believe that we try to keep our teeth as healthy and clean as possible, but there are times when we are unaware of any dental issues that may be presenting themselves. This is why it is important to maintain regular dental visits in order to ensure we are on the right track. Sure, we may see that we need a good cleaning or a tooth that needs to be looked at, but many patients are unaware of the signs that signal a dental crown:
Deep cracks. If you have a deep crack in your tooth, it is very likely that you will need a dental crown. Deep cracks allow for bacteria to build up and make its way to the nerve of the tooth which can cause breakage and permanent tooth loss.
Chipped tooth. Because strong and healthy teeth do not chip, your tooth will need an examination to determine the reason for the chip and decide if a crown is necessary to restore the function of your tooth.
Multiple cavities. The more cavities you have on a tooth, the more your tooth is susceptible to damage and decay. If your dental problem cannot be solved with a dental filling, a dental crown will most likely be necessary.
Avoid any further dental issues from arising and call a dental professional if you experience any signs that indicate that you are in need of a dental crown. Drs. Barmby and Frick are experts in preforming dental crowns and other dental restoration to return your smile back to its healthiest.
