5 Signs You Need to Have Jacket Crown

Dental crown, or jacket crown, is a tooth-shaped cap used to cover a tooth. This dental procedure is performed to restore strength, shape and size of the tooth as well as improve its appearance. If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate for dental crowning in the Philippines, here are some signs that you need to undergo the procedure:

  • Root Canal. When root canal treatment is done, the tooth becomes hollowed out and becomes prone to fracturing. This is where a dental crown comes in: it strengthens the tooth and prevents it from future cracking.
  • Chipped or Broken Tooth. Are you holding back your smile for years because of chipped or broken tooth? Don’t hold back for long because dental crown is the answer to your problem. Thanks to jacket crown, you can restore that old beam and even make it the perfect killer smile celebrities in the Philippines are known for.
  • Large Filling. If half the width of your tooth has cavity or is fractured, a crown is already needed. This is because large filling tends to make the tooth weaker. When there isn’t a lot of tooth left, dental crown will support and cover the remaining parts, preventing further damage.
  • Broken cusps. Sometimes, cusps break off the tooth as they take most stress as you chew. The breakage can even lead all the way to the bone so dental crowning is needed to cover the tooth and prevent it from fracturing.
  • Undesirable teeth appearance. If your teeth have gaps, are misshapen or are severely discolored, you might want to have dental crowning performed on you. Dental crowns do not only restore but it also improves the overall aesthetic of your teeth, giving a beautiful and natural look.
Do you have any of the signs mentioned above? If yes, then you are a good candidate to have the jacket crown treatment performed on you. However, it is still best to consult your dentist in the Philippines on whether the procedure is really suitable for your dental dilemma.

The Truth About Tooth Decay in Children

So you think a decayed baby tooth falling out prematurely isn’t a big deal? You immediately dismiss the case since you believe baby teeth are just temporary, and they will eventually be replaced with grown-up teeth. While the second statement is true, the first one is a common misconception among parents that you should get demystified of.

The truth is baby teeth serve as an important guide in the positioning of permanent teeth. If they fall out unnaturally, it can cause your kid’s permanent teeth to grow crooked or crowded. If left untreated, deep infection can also lead to malformation and discoloration of the grown-up teeth which would need an expensive orthodontic work from your pediatric dentist in Manila.

Teeth decay, aka cavity and dental caries, might seem like a minor problem at first, but it can greatly affect the health and performance of your child. In fact, a study conducted by the American Journal of Public Health in 2012 showed that elementary and high school students with toothache were four times more likely to have a below-average GPA than those who didn’t experience the pain. Also, they were six times more likely to miss school, while their parents are four times more likely to miss work because of their kids’ dental problems.

According to Los Angeles-based pediatric dentist and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) President Robert Delarosa, DDS, losing teeth prematurely due to cavity can affect children’s speech development and articulation. Worse, affected children may even avoid conversation and other non-verbal expressions such as smiling and laughing just to hide their teeth.

The abovementioned problems only show how tooth decay should not be treated lightly. However, you need not have to worry because this dental issue can be totally prevented. The first and foremost step to do this is by identifying and understanding its causes.

When bacteria invade your kid’s mouth and start to eat away the primary teeth, tooth decay happens. These bacteria freely enter the mouth when your kid fails to brush his teeth regularly, and when there is inadequate dental care from his pediatric dentist in Manila. Unhealthy eating habits like sucking on sweets for a long time also causes cavity.

Aside from those, bacteria also breed when your kid goes to bed with a bottle. According to AAPD, the milk or juice from the bottle stays in your child’s mouth, allowing bacteria to form as he sleeps. This particular condition is called baby bottle tooth decay.

Having said that, you can check out the following preventive measures to ensure your kid won’t fall victim to this painful dental experience.
  • Avoid sharing of spoons and other utensils
  • Fill sippy cups with water only
  • Refrain from sleeping with bottles
  • Regularly brush teeth after meals
  • Snack smart; limit candy and finish sweets and drinks immediately
  • Use fluoride toothpaste over non-fluoridated “training toothpaste”
  • Visit the pediatric dentist in Manila by your kid’s first birthday
With the truth about tooth decay revealed, you should never see the dental problem as a minor concern again. Take the preventive measures mentioned above and protect your kid from the immense pain this dental caries brings.a
