Full Mouth Dental Crowns
Full mouth restorations with dental crowns includes building up the broken, chipped off and decayed teeth, restoring the cavities and replacing the missing tooth. It is done to improve the patient’s (oral) health and aesthetics.
When is full mouth dental crowns recommended?
Crowns are preferred over large cavity fillings, root canal treated tooth, missing tooth replaced by the implants, bridges and core build-up over the healthy roots, certain conditions like amelogenesis imperfecta, dentinogenesis imperfecta where the tooth enamel and the dentin is affected respectively. It is associated with discolorations of the tooth and also chipping off the surface is seen.
In case most or all of the teeth are missing, not only a full set of crowns are needed but also quite a few implants to support the crowns. This is a more complex procedure, we recommend reading our article about full mouth dental implants, that focuses on the implant surgery part of the treatment.
Crowns are also indicated for spacing between the teeth and when the patient is not willing to or unfit for orthodontic treatment, especially in the midline spacing which greatly affects the look of the patient’s smile.
What Cause Gum Problems?
Gingivitis is a shallow gingival inflammation around the teeth and there several deferent types of the disease:
- Catarrhal – the most common type of gingivitis, which provokes gum redness, bleeding, mild itching, pain during eating or teeth brushing.
- Hypertrophic – causes significant compaction of gum tissue and keratinization of individual sites. Thus, gum tissue becomes dark red and requires medical treatment.
- Ulcerative type of gingivitis is the most severe one, it affects larger areas of gums and can cause purulent inflammations, death of soft tissues and bad breath.
Reasons for Crown Lengthening
Crown lengthening is a versatile and common procedure that has many effective uses and benefits. The vast majority of patients who have undergone this type of surgery are highly delighted with the results.
Restoration of damaged teeth – Periodontal disease can cause severe damage to the teeth, as can trauma and decay. Where teeth have been broken beneath the gum line, crown lengthening can be used to prepare the area for a new restoration to correct the damaged teeth.
Cosmetic uses – Extra gum tissue can make teeth look unnaturally short and can also increase susceptibility to periodontal infections. Removing excess gum tissue can restore a balanced, healthy look and improve the aesthetic appearance of the smile.
Dental crowns – Crown lengthening provides more space between the supporting jawbone and dental crown. This prevents the new crown from damaging gum tissues and bone once it is in place.
