New ceramic materials provide the strength of a full metal crown, with the appearance of a natural tooth. Watch this video to see how old crowns compare to new materials. If you’ve ever had a broken crown, talk to Dr. Young about the possibility of that never happening again.
Dr. Young provides a lifetime warranty on his ceramic restorations against chipping, cracking, or breakage, as long as you keep your recommended checkup schedule. No other dentist does this. If your dentist doesn’t warranty your crowns, give us a call.
Periodontal, or gum disease, is an infection of the gums and bone that surround teeth and is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
What causes periodontal disease?
The sticky film of food and bacteria that forms on your teeth is called plaque. If the plaque is not removed adequately, it begins to calcify and become hard. This is known as calculus, or tartar, and cannot be removed by simple brushing or flossing. The bacteria in plaque and tartar produce toxins, and combined with your body’s reaction to them, destroy the bone around your teeth. This destroys the support of teeth and can lead to not only dental problems but overall health problems.
Advances in the field of root canals have led to effective, consistent, and predictable results.
Why do people need them?
When someone has lost some or all of their teeth due to disease or injury, restoring the most natural feel and function is critical to one’s well-being.
