Crowns & Bridges
When a Tooth Needs to Be Pulled
Despite the best efforts of you and your dentist, there are times when a tooth is so decayed or damaged that the only remedy is extracting it. You also may need to have fragile, diseased, or impacted teeth removed before a prosthesis can be fitted.
While your general dentist may perform simple extractions, he or she may refer you to an oral surgeon for more complicated ones. For a simple extraction, your dentist injects a local anesthetic into the gum and loosens the tooth with hand instruments, such as pliers and short levers. Once the dentist has loosened the tooth sufficiently, he or she pulls it out in one piece.
For teeth that cannot be removed in a single piece, local or general anesthesia can be used, depending on your preference and that of your dentist. If the tooth is impacted, your dentist may have to cut the gum and bone to reveal the tooth. Then he or she breaks the tooth into pieces, removes it from the gum, and stitches the wound shut.
Dentists use a crown, also called a cap, to repair a tooth that’s been broken by injury, undergone root canal therapy, or been so seriously weakened by cavities that it’s in danger of falling apart. Crowns also are used as anchors for a fixed bridge; the bridge is attached to crowns placed on the two adjoining teeth.
Bridges come in several variations, as follows.
Fixed partial denture (fixed bridge). This consists of artificial teeth, called pontics, fused to a metal frame. Fixed bridges are usually made of metal, such as gold alloy, or porcelain that’s fused on metal. The frame is anchored with cement to an abutment at either end. Abutments can be either implants or healthy teeth that have been covered by crowns. The more teeth being replaced, the more natural teeth or implants you will need to use as abutments on either side to give the bridge the necessary support. This ensures that the bridge remains stable under the pressure of chewing.
What Happens During a Dental Checkup?
Even if you follow a diligent home care routine, regular checkups with a dental professional are still a must. Your dentist can watch for early signs of decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or other dental problems and take appropriate action. In addition, professional cleaning rids your teeth of calcified plaque, called calculus or tartar, that can build up in hard-to-reach places. Finally, your dentist can spot clues to whether oral problems are actually symptoms of other diseases in the body.
For most people, two checkups per year are sufficient. But if you have special problems or if you’re at high risk for conditions such as periodontal disease, your dentist may recommend that you come in as frequently as every three months. A routine visit will include a professional cleaning, an exam, and possibly X-rays. Your dentist should also discuss your health history, asking about your past dental problems, allergies, medication use, drug reactions, recent illnesses, and chronic diseases.
