Behandlung mit Biss. Kraftvoll zubeissen.


Not every root-filled tooth has to be stabilized by a tooth crown and not in all cases the mechanic decay caused by caries was to blame. More and more often we recognize that teeth stressed by chewing forces develop inner tissue damage, without caries or a filling. For all root-treated teeth it is imperative that the cause of the inflammation is found and removed. Even a sinuous gum pocket is a conceivable cause of inflammation. If the natural tooth structure is strong enough, just removing the decay will help it the most. In case of strong decay the tooth can be treated with a crown. For this treatment, a fibreglass post needs to be inserted into the root canal and then built up with a composite bonding. Composite and fibreglass are as elastic as the inner substance of the tooth; the crown simulates the natural enamel surface. This way the tooth is restored according to its natural appearance.
