When the remaining teeth are damaged to the extent that we can’t restore them in order to serve their purpose, it is extremely important that we don’t only take care of aesthetics while making it, but also of quality and function. It is of essential importance that we prepare the gum before placing a crown or prosthesis, otherwise there can be consequences like:
- bleeding and red gums,
- pain and uncomfortable biting,
- the prosthesis falling out of the mouth.
Why would we extract teeth, if we can use them as support for the denture?
Cases, where only minimal procedures are needed for the placement of a new crown, are rare. In many cases the tooth is broken under the gum level or the problem is caries that extends itself deep under the gum. When using clasical approaches we would need a surgical procedure before placing the crown or to extract this tooth and insert an implant. When using the laser we can remove the gum and even the bone around the chipped tooth- that is how it remains appropriate for support. In this way the procedure is way less invasive and painful, tat is why we can place the crown faster. You can find out here, how this is possible.
