One of the functions of your routine dental checkups at Healy Dental Care’s dental offices includes catching the early signs of cavities and gum disease to treat them before they can worsen into a more serious oral health condition. If you have a bad habit of putting off these important a small area of tooth decay can quickly expand into a large cavity.
If too much dental structure has been compromised for Dr. James R. Healy to viably treat the tooth with a dental filling, he might recommend performing a dental crown restoration. This will completely replace the tooth’s enamel layer with a special type of dental material.
The treatment process starts with Dr. James R. Healy numbing the tooth and surrounding gums. Once you are fully comfortable he will use a drill to remove the tooth enamel layer. Dr. James R. Healy will then create an impression of the abutment and the surrounding teeth. It will be delivered to the dental lab that will create your new dental crown.
You will need to attend a brief follow up appointment with Dr. James R. Healy when your dental crown is ready. Then he will cement it in place with a strong dental adhesive to complete the dental restoration.
If you have a cavity on one of your teeth and you live in the Ogden, Utah, area, you should call 801-394-0808 to seek treatment at Healy Dental Care.
