Understanding Tooth Decay and the Role of Dental Crowns

The detrimental effects of tooth decay on oral health are widely acknowledged. The distressing pain associated with this condition often leads to reduced quality of life. At Ridge Family Dental, we are dedicated to helping patients from Lyndhurst, NJ, and nearby areas manage and treat tooth decay with dental crowns.

Dental crowns serve as a viable solution for salvaging teeth severely affected by cavities or other damages.

Tooth Decay: An Overview

Tooth decay is primarily caused by bacteria transforming sugar into acid that erodes the tooth enamel. This gradual damage may necessitate advanced treatments such as dental crowns if not alleviated early on.

The Vital Role of Dental Crowns 

Dental crowns serve as a viable solution for salvaging teeth severely affected by cavities or other damages. They emulate the size, color, shape, and functionality of natural teeth, often improving overall oral aesthetics alongside restoring dental health.

Our Approach to Addressing Tooth Decay & Utilizing Dental Crowns 

With an exhaustive understanding of root restorative procedures, including dental crown placements, our dentist could provide excellent treatment plans tailored uniquely for every patient, considering their specific needs.

Procedure for Installing a Crown

From preparation to restoration with a permanent crown, we work to ensure each step is executed seamlessly, minimizing discomfort during this process while upholding the high-quality standards set forth for these sophisticated treatments. We start with preparing the tooth by removing the decay and a small amount of tooth enamel. Then, we’ll take impressions to ensure your new crown fits properly in your mouth. We’ll fit you with a temporary crown to protect your tooth while waiting for your permanent one to be fabricated.

Predicting Early Signs Of Deterioration through Regular Checkups 

Maintaining regular appointments equips us to catch initial signals indicative of possible development of critical issues such as decay. Strategizing immediate treatment plans could help to prevent further degradation of oral health.

Escaping Major Dental Issues with Timely Crown Placement 

Opting for dental crowns at an appropriate time can avert numerous complications that might otherwise require more intensive procedures. Patients often report experiencing considerable relief post-treatment.

Maintaining your New Crown

We equip you with practical tips for ensuring optimal care for your newly installed crown, amplifying its lifespan and thus promoting enduring oral health enhancement.
