Sometimes a minor cavity can go undetected. This is even more likely to be an issue if you’ve suffered from tooth sensitivity problems in the past. If you also have a bad habit of putting off your routine dental checkups at Dr. Ryan Wilson’s dental office, it could allow the area of tooth decay to compromise a significant amount of previously healthy tooth enamel.
If too much dental structure has been compromised for Dr. Ryan Wilson to viable repair the tooth with a dental filling, he might recommend a dental crown restoration. This will completely replace the tooth enamel layer with an alternate dental material.
The treatment process starts with Dr. Ryan Wilson numbing the tooth and surrounding gums. Then he will use a drill to remove the tooth enamel layer. Dr. Ryan Wilson will then create an impression of the abutment and the surrounding teeth. This will be sent to a dental lab where special dental technicians will create your new dental crown.
A second appointment at Dr. Ryan Wilson’s dental office will be needed when your dental crown is ready. Then he will cement it in place with a strong dental adhesive. If you have a cavity on one of your teeth and you live in the Farmington, New Mexico, area, you should call (505) 278.7007 to seek treatment at Canyon Dental Care.
