There are times when patients require more than just a dental filling to complete a cavity treatment. Should you find yourself in this situation, you may have problems with an infection to worry over as well as harm to your tooth structure. Fortunately, this is an issue that our Riverside, CA dentist’s office is prepared to address. Through the appropriate restorative dental work, we can make sure that an infection is addressed before putting a permanent restoration in place. The use of a lifelike dental crown after endodontic treatment can ensure that your smile remains attractive even as a conspicuous crown is present.
How Serious Is Your Cavity?
If you have a cavity that is serious enough to cause persistent pain, a change in your tooth color, increased sensitivity, or trouble with swelling around it, what you are dealing with should not be taken lightly. These signs point to an infection, which occurs whenever bacteria make their way past your enamel and start to attack the living tissues in your pulp. At this point, you will require endodontic services to fully recover. Through treatment, we can remove infected tissues and bacteria to give you a chance to fully recover. In addition to this, we can supply a custom restoration to keep your tooth safe.
Undergoing Endodontic Treatment
To restore the health of your tooth when you have a serious cavity, we can perform endodontic treatment in the form of root canal therapy. This procedure tends to the pulp, the central chamber of your tooth, which is where your living tissues are contained. The removal of bacteria and infected tissues will stop the active threat to your oral health. With that said, additional work is still required to fully protect you. We will need to place a custom dental crown to make sure your tooth stays safe from both physical harm and future infections.
Receiving A Custom Dental Crown
A custom dental crown can be made and placed so that your tooth remains secure, and so that you can still bite and chew without difficulty. We can take care to thoroughly measure the tooth in question, which gives us the information we need to provide a restoration that stays secure. We can then affix the crown so that it will remain in position. Even a crown made to imitate healthy enamel can provide lasting bite support to preserve your dental function.
