Dental Bridges Walnut Creek, CA

Looking for information on bridge restoration services because you severely damaged one of your dental crowns? Good idea. Since you have a dental crown in your mouth it means that you chose this option so you can once again have a healthy mouth as dental crowns help make weak teeth strong. You want to keep all of your teeth, as you will eventually experience various types of negative oral issues due to tooth loss. Because one of your crowns is now damaged, it is possible that you may be in need of a bridge restoration rather than simply getting a new crown. In order for you to know for sure, you will need to see a dental professional for a thorough oral examination.

How can a dental crown get damaged?

There are many different ways that someone can damage one of their dental crowns. This makes it essential for anyone who has a dental crown to understand how crowns can become damaged so they can be sure to take the necessary precautions to prevent any damage from happening. The following is a list of three of the more common ways a dental crown can become severely damaged.

Experiencing some sort of trauma

Examples of trauma that can cause a severely damaged crown include being involved in an auto accident, falling down and hitting one’s face on the ground and being hit in the face when playing sports.

Eating hard foods, chewing on hard objects

While the teeth are indeed strong, it is possible for them to become damaged even when a crown is present when someone eats very hard foods or chews on hard objects. Hard food choices include nuts, hard candy and unpopped popcorn kernels. Hard objects that are commonly chewed on that can cause damage to a dental crown include pens, ice and fingernails.

Being diagnosed with bruxism

Bruxism is a term used when someone grinds or clenches their teeth, which can cause severe damage to a dental crown due to the constant pressure being placed on the teeth.

When bridge restoration services are necessary

Bridge restoration services are necessary when the severely damaged crown affects the tooth so badly that the tooth needs to be extracted. Because a healthy mouth is one that has a full set of teeth, a dental bridge will be used as the tooth replacement option.

Have you recently damaged your dental crown?

Recently damaged your crown and wondering if bridge restoration services are required to fix your severely damaged dental crown? No matter the reason, it is necessary for you to have it repaired as soon as possible so you can once again be in good oral health. If instead of a simple crown replacement you are in need of bridge restoration services, know that this solution will help you keep all of your teeth and is therefore recommended.
