Dental Crowns: Procedures and Treatment


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped, custom-made 'cap' that is placed over a tooth, either for protection or cosmetic enhancement. Dental crowns are used to restore a tooth's shape, size, and strength, as well as improving its overall appearance If you have a chipped or damaged tooth, or you just wish to improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile, tooth caps may be the answer. Dental crowns (or tooth caps) offer a simple solution for restoring and protecting your teeth while creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Metal crowns are the most long-lasting kinds available. They rarely chip or break, and they cause minimum wear to other teeth. However, because of their distinctive metal color, these crowns are best for molars. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are a more popular choice as they can be color-matched to your natural tooth. This makes them the ideal choice for front teeth. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near t La Marque, Galveston and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB and ROSS market complex and has the best orthodontists available for you. 

Preparing a tooth for a crown generally requires two visits to your dentist. The initial visit involves examining and preparing the tooth, and the second involves the placement of the crown. During the first visit, your dentist may take X-rays to examine the roots of the tooth and its surrounding bone to ensure there is no decay or risk of infection. They will then inject a local anesthetic to numb the area before filing the tooth to make room for the crown. Once the tooth has been reshaped, the dentist will make an impression of the tooth with paste or putty. This impression will be the model of your crown, which will be made within a few days. In the meantime, your tooth will be fitted with a temporary crown to protect the treated tooth. At your second visit, your dentist will remove your temporary crown and cement your permanent crown into place, ensuring the fit and color are suitable.

                                         Taking Care Of Your Oral Health In Self Isolation

During self-isolation, make sure you are well prepared to care for your oral health. The pandemic is disrupting every area of our lives are currently, including physical activity. We can no longer simply go for a walk, visit the gym or play team sports, while the temptation is to sit at home and spend more time on the couch. However, physical inactivity is a major risk factor for developing a 
serious disease

Toothbrush Hygiene
Keep safe by making sure nobody uses each other’s toothbrushes and that they are stored well away from everybody else’s toothbrush. The damp environment of a toothbrush is ideal for spreading viruses. Use separate toothpaste as well.

Continue with Your Normal Oral Care Routine
Sticking to every day routines is important while self-isolating and particularly your dental maintenance routine. Make sure you continue to brush at least twice a day and floss once-a-day. If you 
wish, use a mouthwash for 30 seconds as this can slightly reduce the risk of spreading viruses.

Watch Your Diet
It’s a time when it’s tempting to indulge in snacks and Netflix, but try to limit your consumption of sugary or acidic foods. Instead, concentrate on eating foods that will boost your immune systems like 
vitamin-rich and nutrient-dense fruits and veggies.

Stay Active
Make sure you have some form of physical activity every day. If you can’t get outside, there are plenty of fun exercise routines online.

Drink plenty of Water
It is easy to become dehydrated and especially if you are fighting an infection. Some medications can reduce saliva flow too, so be sure to drink plenty of plain water.
