When you have a cavity on front tooth, it can be more than just an aesthetic issue. Because this tooth receives the most wear and tear of all the teeth in your mouth, it’s prone to suffering from more cavities than any other tooth. This can be especially troubling if the cavity occurs in one of your front molars, which are critical for grinding down food so that it can be chewed and digested properly by your digestive system!
Aesthetics Are Important
Dealing with a cavity in your front tooth can be frustrating and time-consuming. Luckily, you have many options for fixing the problem. Depending on your budget and insurance coverage, you may want to consider a single front tooth crown before and after. This procedure is more affordable than some other treatments and will provide quick relief from the problem. Contact our office today to find out what your best option is!
The Pain Can Be Unbearable
The most obvious symptom of a cavity is pain. If you are experiencing pain, try to pinpoint what the cause is. There are two common causes for this; the first is that your tooth is not aligned properly with your other teeth which irritate. The second reason could be that there is decay in your tooth and it needs to be removed.
To address the first issue, visit your dentist to get an x-ray done and have them fix any misalignment. The best way to address the second issue is by getting a single front tooth crown before and after the procedure done as soon as possible.
It’s Hard To Eat
I’m not kidding when I say that my front tooth has been the bane of my existence for the past month. It’s hard to eat, talk, drink, and brush my teeth with only one working tooth in the front. I’ve tried putting off getting it fixed for as long as possible because I can’t afford to get it fixed up right now, but I know that this is going to be an issue until it is taken care of. So here are some things that you can do if you’re dealing with a single missing tooth like me:
1) Start by replacing your old toothbrush with a new one so that you don’t have any germs lingering on your old one.
You’re Constantly Aware Of It
Many people have a single front tooth that stands out, but being aware of it can be frustrating. There are many ways to cover up a single tooth, but one option is to get a crown. A crown will cover your entire front tooth and give you back your smile. The process of getting a single front tooth crown before and after is simple: an impression is made of your teeth and sent off to the lab for fabrication. When you come in for the fitting, we’ll take the impression out of your mouth and make sure everything fits properly; then we’ll take impressions for bite blocks that go on top of your teeth during sleep. Finally, we’ll attach the new crown to your teeth with cement or metal posts.
A single front tooth crown is an excellent treatment option for those who have a cavity on their front tooth. Single-tooth crowns are made to match the size and shape of your natural teeth, and they can be placed in just one visit. The dentist or dental lab will take an impression of your mouth to get the proper fit for your new tooth, then we’ll send that back to the lab so that it can be created. When you come back for your appointment, the dentist will place the new crown on your tooth and secure it with brackets and screws or cement.
