This is a treatment type used to replace the missing teeth or restore the aesthetics in the teeth are entirely lost, worn, decayed or suffering tissue damage. In metal supported crowns, the tooth must have sufficient structure for veneer application. Root canal treatment is applied in the teeth, the crown of which is not supported and post & core is performed in the canal to support the crown application.
What are the possible problems?
No tenderness or discomfort is felt once the crowns are glued. If pain or tenderness is felt when biting, any problem caused by the humped crown is easily removed by the dentist.
In rarely seen porcelain tooth fractures, the crowns are repaired inside the mouth if the fracture is small. Larger fractures may require replacement of the crown.
What is Crochet-Attached Prosthesis Treatment?
Crochet-attached prosthesis treatment is preferred in cases of excessive (high number of) missing teeth in removable prosthesis applications.
When and how is it applied?
With the metal hooks called “crochet”, the missing teeth are positioned by attaching onto the other teeth. Crotchet-attached prosthesis is used in case of high number of missing teeth or in the absence of molar teeth for anchorage.
The teeth made in the form of crochet-attached dentures, also known as partial hook-dentures, are attached onto existing teeth with metals called crochets.
Crochet-attached dentures that never decay create a pleasant look during smile.
