In recent years, there has been a significant amount of research conducted on the importance of crown placement after root canal treatment. There has been much debate on the issue, with some claiming that it is important and beneficial while others disagree and claim that it is a waste of time and money. So, what exactly is the best way to place the crown after the treatment is complete?
Well, the important thing to remember is that the decision to place the crown after the treatment has been completed is entirely up to the patient. If the patient decides to proceed with the procedure, it is perfectly fine. However, if the patient decides to not go ahead with the treatment, it is important to discuss this with the dentist and the oral surgeon prior to the actual treatment. They should be able to guide the patient on what they should do when the crown is placed.
Once the procedure has been completed, the dentist should re-align the teeth and ensure that they are properly aligned. It is important to ensure that there is no further damage to the gums and the surrounding areas. This is especially important if the gums are inflamed or infected.
An important consideration that patients must take into consideration is whether they are going to need to wear a removable appliance to retain the appliance in place. Patients that are suffering from post-treatment pain, soreness, or tenderness should not wear an appliance, since this will only make the situation worse. The oral surgeon should be able to guide the patient on what type of appliance they should be wearing, and they should not be allowed to wear an appliance until the crown has been placed and the gums are healed.
Another important consideration is the amount of time it takes for the gums to heal after the procedure. The dentist is going to have to take some time to ensure that there is no swelling, bruising, or bleeding from the treatment. This is something that the patient should take into consideration when determining if they are going to be able to go back to work in a few days.
Another important consideration to make is the amount of time it takes for the patient to feel comfortable after the procedure. A patient should not have to suffer from pain and discomfort for a period of time before they can get back to their normal routines. They should not have to keep the crown in place for a long period of time and they should not be expected to wait for a long period of time before they are able to eat normal foods. Patients should also have the ability to get dressed in and take a shower in the same day.
