Crowns are caps placed on damaged or decayed teeth to protect and restore their shape. They can be made from various materials, including metal, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and zirconia. Crowns can be placed over natural teeth and dental implants to replace missing teeth.
For patients with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) issues, treatments such as arthrocentesis, arthroscopic surgery, or open-joint surgery (arthrotomy) may be considered. The choice of treatment varies as per the severity of the condition. Sometimes, a simple bite correction or treating the misaligned teeth can help alleviate the symptoms of TMD.
Dental implants replace missing teeth. They are artificial dental roots and act as a foundation over which the crown is fixed. Implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth.
Gum surgeries may be part of FMR to restore gum health. By removing infected gum tissue, these procedures preserve both your teeth and supporting tissues.
Dentures are used when a fixed option is unsuitable for restoring dental function, whether complete or partial.
