DENTAL CROWN
When a tooth needs strengthening, dental crowns are an excellent option.  Many patients are unaware of their uses and how they can work to protect and strengthen teeth.  They are essentially a cap that is placed over a tooth to cover the top and sides of it.  This creates a protective barrier that is also extremely durable.
Dr. Joe Karam always uses them after a root canal has been performed on the posterior or back teeth.  In a root canal, he removes the dental pulp which is the soft center of the tooth. A filling is placed into the tooth, but it still may not be strong enough to sustain constant and powerful biting and chewing.  This requires an additional step in order for patients to have the full functionality of their tooth.
A dental crown is able to provide patients with the strength and durability they cannot get from a filling alone.  Where a filling simply closes a gap or hole, a crown surrounds the tooth and prevents bacteria and plaque from reaching it.  The crown also enables people to eat and bite down like they normally would without fear of harming the tooth. Don't hesitate to call Dr. Joe Karam the best dental clinic in Lebanon.
