Fillings and crowns are the bread and butter of the dental profession.
Often times you will here your dentist inform you a crown will be a better option in providing protection for a tooth.
Crowns are discussed before and after our patients go in to see an endodontist for a root canal.
The nourishment of the teeth treated with root canals is provided by the tiny strain of tissue removed from the root and pulp chamber.
Due to removal of tissue deep within the tooth, a crown reinforces the remaining tooth structure for greater viability.
Filling material is designed to seal conservative cavity preparations not leaving a tooth vulnerable to fracture.
Filling materials are very durable the reason they are used to re-build the walls of teeth.
Teeth that have undergone extensive re-building of vital walls for support, are candidates for possible fracture.
Crowns require the cutting away of tooth structure. This preparatory procedure reduces the tooth for proper alignment of the crown to be cemented.
Dental offices have drastically reduced the delivery of silver fillings due to their mercury content.
Heavy metals, like mercury, can be eliminated from the body with nutritional supplements.
Literature shows Calcium Bentonite Clay is used to eliminate heavy metals.
Body cleanses that detoxify the blood are another source for elimination of heavy metals.
It is a good idea to cleanse quarterly when heavy metals are present in the body.
Sources of heavy metals coming into the body are radiation therapy, fish and seafood.
Also be careful of cigarette smoking with many toxic carcinogens.
Pipe smokers in particular will teach you lessons from life if you have an opportunity to visit their homes or view their chest x-rays.
Healthcare workers are concerned with the numerous hours spent by nail technicians around very toxic chemical.
Polymers of powder and liquid monomers mixed all day are minimal exposure to patients but accumulative for the operator.
Their toxicity over years of use can cause skin eruptions and neurological concerns.
Some of our temporary crown procedures in dentistry are fabricated out of these same materials.
Dentists and dental technicians work in well ventilated spaces delivering services fabricated with these products.
Those of us who have been in the industry for a number of years are glad to share with newer members of the profession what we are doing to stay fit and healthy.
Fillings and crowns improve with time to be reviewed periodically for their safety.
