Tooth crown using acrylic

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown using acrylic


Avatar m tn Right now im in the process of having the material removed,the only catch is that i will losing some tooth enamel and there is only way to make sure the material was completely removed,by using UltraViolet light. Still not sure how im going to convince the dentist to do this,i dont even know if it will work. I found out about the UltraViolet light in this webpage: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar f tn Did 2nd part of root canal and crown prep, etc. Now I have the temporary crown (put on Aug 4). I went back the day after to have bite adjusted again. That improved the sharp pain when teeth touched and he also put me on 2nd round of antibiotics just in case. Gradually since then (Aug 4) the gum behind the tooth became extremely sore and sensitive. I can't brush around the tooth. I swish with warm saltwater a couple of times a day. I use Tylenol or Advil around the clock.
Avatar f tn t a temporary crown supposed to cover the whole tooth? With this acrylic crown, I could feel a gap between my gums and the tooth when I came home that night which has closed slightly, but one side of the tooth has been completely open since the prep. Is this standard procedure or have I got a quack for a dentist? It's been 6 going on 7 days now since the procedure and first thing in the morning I'm calling to see the dentist.
Avatar n tn I recently had a cavity removed from a molar. Because it was quite deep, the dentist filled it with a sedative filling and we waited two weeks to see if I experienced any sensitivity. During that time I did not have any sensitivity to cold or hot and the tooth felt fine. Originally, I was told that the remaining tooth structure was about 2 to 3 mm away from the root and that if it did not become sensitive, the tooth would be restored with an onlay.
Avatar f tn My tooth had a root canal over 40 years ago and was shaved down to a peg, and was capped using a porcelain fused metal crown. The underlying tooth is severely discolored and dark. I now need a new crown and my dentist is recommending all porcelain. He is also encouraging me to choose a slightly lighter shade than my surrounding natural teeth to compensate for the discoloration since concerned of the possiblity of it showing through.
Avatar m tn I see so many people with crowns being super sensitive after having them placed and its from the tooth being dried bone dry, while placing the crown. The tooth usually settles down within 3 months (long time I know). An acrylic night guard would probably benefit you. It does sound like you need a guard and I don't recommend the cheapo OTC ones as they will cause more damage in the long run with it not being fitted properly (with your teeth and TMJ).
Avatar m tn But the work has to be perfect - if there is any space at the margin of a crown I will get tongue irritation from cement leaking out. Especialy if it is an acrylic based cement - I am allergic to acrylic. Old fashioned zinc phosphate cement is the only kind that doesn't have acrylic. Did your tongue problems start after having dental work done? Mine did.
Avatar n tn I went to the dentist six days ago to have a crown procedure done. After the pain medication wore off I felt fine with no pain. The next day I was fine for the most part but started to get pain in the gum area where the procedure took place. Each day now the pain had spread and moved all along my gums on the side of the mouth the procedure took place. I am still wearing my temporary crown and will be for a total of three weeks due to the fact their lab is out of state.
Avatar n tn Even if I never bite anything harder than apples, will that tooth still fracture without a crown as the tooth gets more brittle and worn? Thanks so much for keeping this forum up!
Avatar n tn I told him I think the crown just did not fit properly, that it should cover the entire tooth. The back part of the crown covers the entire tooth and I have no sensitivity or pain there. I think they just do not want to admit the crown is too small in the front exposing the root of the tooth and they do not want lose money having to replace the crown.
Avatar n tn Well there shouldn't be a galvanic shock cause there's no metal in the temporaries. I'm assuming the doctor made an acrylic temporary, not a metal stainless steel crown. If the bite is off, it may be causing some discomfort due to the extra pressure. Go get it adjusted and see if that helps.
Avatar n tn When I massaged the gum with my finger, I got a really foul taste from the gum. So I went to the dentist. He examined the gum and the crown/tooth joint and didn't see anything that looked bad. When he massaged the gum, he didn't see anything, but I still got a slightly foul taste (but not nearly as strong). He then did a percussion test, tapping firmly on all surfaces of the tooth, and I had no pain.
724811 tn?1291430786 About 7 weeks ago I broke a tooth and went to the dentist to be fitted for a crown. There was no pain involved when the tooth broke. My dentist put a temporary crown in while the real crown was being made. When I went to have to permanent crown put in, about two weeks later, the denist did something (touch a nerve?) and the pain shot thru me and reverberated. When he sprayed the area with cold air, and when I rinsed with water I screamed in pain!
1203683 tn?1265593346 i think my problems were at the end of the root [dentist yanked too hard to get the old crown off]. i have HEARD that sensitive tooth toothpaste can help sensitive teeth, even it they're crowned...?
Avatar f tn 6 weeks ago I had to have a filling replaced with a composite filling and I also had a crown on one of the last lower molars. I had issues with the temporary crown, and those were quickly resolved by my dentist. Last week, my new crown was put in place and I also seemed having some sensitivity issues. The dental assistant used something along the gum line that would be temporary, eventually wearing off. Currently, the tooth with the composite filling is hurting.
Avatar n tn The way he examined the tooth was by first numbing the entire area up as I could not be examined otherwise, then pushing down on the tooth with his finger, then using a pick to press into the gum around the tooth and calling out the numbers… 2-2-2, 2-3-2. That was it. His recommendation was to retreat the root canal or get the tooth pulled and get an implant. I would like a professional speculation type opinion from you (best guess)...
Avatar m tn All posterior teeth that have been root canaled need a crown to prevent the tooth from splitting. Anterior teeth should get a crown or composite filling to strengthen the tooth. Silver fillings are not an option for a tooth that has a root canal.
Avatar n tn Had a wisdom tooth removed. Less than a week later, the tooth next to the old wisdom (already worked on twice as the dentist said there was a cavity in it - filling caused pain when chewing so he redid the filling a 2nd time and still a problem) and the crowned molar next to it started throbbing. Feels like it's coming from the area between the crowned molar and the one next to the old wisdom tooth. So, I go back.
Avatar f tn Have you had crown put on that tooth? After getting root canal, it is highly recommended to get a crown put on in order to avoid future problems like tooth fracture, infection etc etc. Consult your dentist about that and see what his opinion is.
Avatar n tn t do to that tooth is get it bleached only the dentist can do bleaching and he knows what to do with the tooth. Your best best is to brush with backing soda and peroxide that is what all these tooth paste use in order to help whiten teeth or just got to the dentist and get your teeth cleaned that's all.
Avatar f tn with that said since then i have been brushing after every meal, flossing twice a day and using a flouride treatment(ACT) however, my teeth are starting to decay faster than normal. My last dental visit a month ago I had no cavities on my left side however I looked today and number 17 has a black spot on it as well as bad decay on the OD area. my gums are swollen and sore. and the teeth where I just got my rooth canal the gums are swollen around the crown and my mouth is just sore.
Avatar n tn Veneers cannot be placed on with a non-acrylic cement. I had mine replaced with full crowns using old fashioned zinc phosphate cement. Just avoid lithium disilicate crowns. That material has been shown to be cytotoxic. Unfortunately many companies are putting lithium oxide in their ceramics to strengthen them. I found that BruxZir is pure zirconium oxide and has no lithium oxide.
Avatar f tn Dentist treated with Cavitron and said tooth would need to be extracted if swelling continued. Four days ago, had tooth 14 prepped for crown. All okay first day, then cheek and jaw started swelling and have not improved. No pain in tooth 14. Made an independent appt with Oral Surgeon but can't get in for three weeks. Any ideas/suggestions? And, why would tooth 14 exacerbate 29? Or, is it a separate problem? Thanks so much for any help/advice!
Avatar m tn The recommendation for the crown depends on the location of the tooth, the perceived forces that the tooth is subjected to, and the amount of healthy/sound tooth structure that remains. Your tooth is compromised due to cavity and fracture .Further weakening has occurred due to the root canal procedure which has created a hole in the middle of the tooth.
Avatar n tn Is it possible that my tooth will not recover after being filed down for a crown? The tooth was perfectly fine until it was prepped for a crown. I have highly sensitive teeth, I have undergone 3 root canals already and suffer from TMJ. I am leary of getting the permanent crown on if my tooth does not quit hurting even though he said he can go through the back and do a root canal. what are my options? Thank you.
