Are You Having A Hard Time Chewing?
Chewing your food is a necessary part of eating. When there is pain or an open spot in your mouth, you’ll have a hard time chewing or eating what you want or even what you need for good health. Dr. Rosenblatt can help you solve your chewing issues and get you back to enjoying the food you love.
When Dental Crowns Are Needed to Save Teeth
More often than not, hard time chewing is indicative of a cracked, broken, or infected tooth. In other words, your tooth is damaged, and it cannot take the pressure of your teeth pounding and grinding together as you chew your food.
If left untreated, a crack or break can often lead to infection. Sometimes this damage is due to decay, or a cavity, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes the damage is due to a cavity that was filled several years ago, but the filling is weakening and is causing pain in your now-compromised tooth.
Whatever the cause, we have the solution with dental crowns. A dental crown is essentially a cap that fits perfectly over the top of your tooth. We will need to do a little bit of trimming of the outer enamel of your tooth to allow room for the crown to fit. Once your tooth is prepared, the crown is fitted perfectly and attached using special glue.
What to Expect from Your Dental Crown
A dental crown will likely last for many years. We offer zirconia crowns, which are some of the strongest crowns available. Not only are they incredibly strong, but they reflect light just as your natural teeth do. You’re likely to forget that you ever had a crown put in place! It will blend perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Your crown will need the same attention as your natural teeth, so continue to floss, brush, and see us regularly to maintain a happy, healthy smile for many years to come.
