A crown is a treatment that covers a tooth that has been severely damaged or undergone significant intervention.
Situations that may call for a crown include:
Produced in a laboratory, crowns are often made of ceramic, a very durable material that offers great protection for the tooth. Ceramic is also the most aesthetically pleasing material, because it resembles the natural appearance of a tooth.
Gum disease is divided into two categories: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gum by bacteria that cause plaque and tartar. A lack of appropriate dental hygiene is often the cause of gingivitis. It is important to act quickly when diagnosed with gingivitis, because even minor inflammation can lead to periodontitis. Periodontitis is an advanced stage of gingivitis that is much more difficult to treat. When bacteria penetrates tissues in the mouth, it may destroy bone structures that support the teeth. If caught early, periodontitis can easily be treated by a dentist. However, if the periodontitis has reached a more advanced stage, Dr. Thu Nguyen’s team will explain the necessary treatment protocols.
