Prosthodontics

Periodontics is a special stream in dentistry used to correct or treat the problems of swallowing, appearance and speech caused by injuries or disease, using oral and facial prostheses. Nowadays, prosthodontics is on high demand as beauty and looks plays an important role in the modern society. Beauty has become an important part of their lifestyle. Cosmetics and make ups have limits in making someone beautiful. Modern world is market oriented and even beauty is getting marketed. To say, fashion world is one of the largest one in the market. One can conquer the world with a simple and beautiful smile. Only well structured and shaped teeth can deliver an attractive and beautiful smile. A good smile involves more than just healthy gums and teeth. It is a blend of color, lines, shapes and symmetry that create an accurate and attractive smile. This can be acquired through prosthodontic treatments.

Dental Crowns

Dental crown is a cap, shaped like tooth which is used to improve the appearance and also to recover its size, shape and strength of the tooth. It is usually placed over a tooth. A dental crown is useful in many ways such as:

  • To protect a tooth from decaying or breaking.
  • To recover a broken or decayed tooth.
  • To sustain a dental bridge in place.
  • To cover a tooth this is uncolored or unshaped.
  • To make cosmetic alterations.
  • When there is a lot of tooth loss, it helps to cover the tooth with large filling.

Dental crown can be useful in the case of children also. Problems with oral hygiene cause many problems such as tooth decay and tooth loss in children. Dental crown help them to get protected from such problems. It also helps to decrease the frequency of general anesthesia and sedation for children to completely cooperate with the proper dental care requirements. In such cases, a pediatric dentist may suggest a stainless steel crown.

Available crown types

Permanent crown can be made from resin, ceramic, prorcelain-fused–to-metal, stainless steel and all other metals including gold. The main types of dental crowns are:

  • Stainless steel crowns: These are made of stainless steel material. These prefabricated crowns are primarily used as a temporary measure on permanent teeth. This crown protects the tooth from decaying. In the case of children, the crown is used to fit over a primary tooth. When the primary tooth comes out and about to welcome the permanent tooth, the steel crown naturally comes out with it. This is more useful and cost-effective treatment for children.
  • Metal crowns: Gold alloys, base-metal alloys and other alloys are used for this. Metal crowns resist the chewing and biting forces very well. It is long lasting also. But, the main drawback of metal crown is its color. These crowns are good for molars that are out of sight.
  • Procleain-fused-to-metal crowns: These crowns look more like normal teeth. But, sometimes the metal underlying the porcelain crown can be visible. These are not like metal crowns in terms of color. It can be used for both front and back teeth.
  • All resin crowns: These types are usually less expensive. But, there are more chances for fractures in the crown if overused.
  • All ceramic crowns: These are of better natural color and more suitable for people with metal allergies. But, these are not much stronger crowns. All ceramic crowns are best choice for front teeth.
  • Temporary versus permanent: Permanent crowns are usually made in dental laboratories and temporary crowns are made in dentist’s office. Temporary crowns are used temporarily until a permanent crown is made by the dentist. Temporary crowns are made of stainless steel or acrylic.

There is a chance of developing certain problems such as discomfort, sensitivity, allergic reactions, loose crown, visible dark line next to the gum line of crowned tooth and crown falls off. The dental crown may last for five to fifteen years. It mainly depends on how you use the crown.

CAD/CAM Crowns

Everything seems to be going digital. Photography. Music. File Storage. Even dental labs, which will benefit patients as well as the dentists who serve them. As the materials and technology available for CAD/CAM dentistry have improved, so too have the restorations patients can receive from this form of digital dentistry. Today's CAD/CAM restorations are better-fitting, more durable and more natural looking than previously machined restorations.

Computer Aided Design and Computer Assisted Milling (CAD/CAM) takes the world of dentistry to a new level fabricating conventional lab products like White metal crowns and Porcelain fused to metal crowns (PFM), involves technique sensitive procedures and material inconsistencies. Often the integrity of a restoration is subject to human error in such areas as waxing, investing, casting and soldering. These errors can be eliminated with the use of CAD/CAM technology

ADVANTAGES of CAD/CAM

  • Improved turnaround times
    With CAD/CAM technology, dental technicians can quickly tell if a bite is off or a margin is inaccurate. They can then immediately contact the dentist and ask for a new file or impression. With real-time troubleshooting capabilities, remake percentages are lowered dramatically.
  • Increased accuracy
    Milling equipment is typically accurate to 50 micrometres, CAD/CAM dental restorations are comparable in fit to traditionally fabricated dental restorations. Accuracy is critical, particularly since the fit of a restoration is the key to preventing future tooth damage. For example, an ill-fitted crown can leave space between the teeth, or between the tooth preparation and the restoration, which could lead to an increased risk of infection or decay.
  • Better long-term patient results
    Since these types of restorations contain no metal to block subsequent x-rays, dentists are able to keep track of potential decay underneath a full zirconia restoration whereas conventional PFM or traditional gold crowns block x-ray radiation, disallowing such an evaluation over time.

As CAD/CAM enables dental practitioners to seat a finished restoration in a week’s time, practitioners find that treated patients have fewer side effects like tooth sensitivity following their dental treatment.
