The right cavity care approach will ensure that you have long-term support for a tooth. The right protection is important, as the damage to your enamel is permanent. The good news is that when you do have the right support, you can remain healthy and stay comfortable biting and chewing with the affected tooth. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can provide important support with dental crowns when we worry about the condition of vulnerable teeth. Whether you require a full crown or a partial crown, we can provide the kind of support that stops new problems from occurring, and we can ensure you stay confident in your smile and dental function!
A Cavity Does Irreversible Harm To Your Tooth Structure
Whether it is caught early or allowed to grow until an infection forms, your cavity will cause irreversible damage to your enamel. This creates a serious issue, as you will need to both have unhealthy tissues removed safely and receive support so that the remaining structure does not experience new problems. While dental fillings are provided in many cases, there are times when something more is needed to provide adequate support. Since our practice has both partial and full crowns, we can look for ways to provide the most conservative care possible while still ensuring you have lasting protection.
Using Partial And Full Crowns To Care For Unhealthy Teeth
There are different forms of support we can provide for patients when we treat cavities. Partial dental crowns provide more protection than fillings, but they still let us preserve more of your healthy tooth structure. We use both inlays and onlays for treatments in these situations. Inlays are able to protect the spaces between cusps, while onlays cover cusps and the structure of the tooth that extends from it down the side. To make sure you have complete support and will not have to change how you apply bite pressure, we do have the option of using a full dental crown. A custom crown will fit over your tooth without affecting its neighbors so that you have long-term protection without complications.
