Good oral hygiene habits will help maintain your dental health. But, if you sustain a trauma or tooth damage from decay, chips or cracks, your dentist in Glendale Heights can fix these issues and prevent new problems from surfacing with a dental crown or a dental bridge.
A dental crown, or tooth cap, is a cover placed over a damaged tooth. A crown is a custom made from impressions of your mouth, so it fits like a glove. After a dental crown is cemented in place, the affected tooth will be stronger. Lotus Dental Care offers different types of tooth caps such as porcelain fused metal crowns Zirconia, Emax, gold, and other materials. Dr. Saila Anumula will discuss with you the best option to restore your tooth.
Having missing teeth can be very problematic. The loss makes it difficult to eat and speak properly and can lead to serious problems like gum disease, TMJ or bone loss over time.
One solution is to close the gap with a dental bridge. We offer our Glendale Heights patients both removable and permanent bridges. A removable or partial bridge can be taken out of the mouth for cleaning. A permanent bridge is fixed in place and is not removable. Fixed bridges are also referred to as permanent dentures.
Your Glendale Heights dentist will recommend the right bridge to restore your dental health and proper mouth function. It is to maintain good oral hygiene practices like brushing, flossing, regular dentist visits when you have a dental bridge. If well cared for, a bridge can serve you well for many years.
