What are dental crowns?
This is an artificial denture, which is installed on a pre-treated natural crown. The purpose of prosthetics is to restore the anatomical shape, aesthetic appearance, as well as chewing function. Crowns can also be part of some other orthopedic structure: a support for an incomplete removable or non-removable prosthesis, splinting when loosening the dentition, etc.

The design must meet certain requirements:
to restore the anatomical shape of the tooth, its aesthetics and color;
support chewing and speech function;
fit well to the neck of the destroyed tooth, properly contact with neighboring units, as well as with the teeth on the opposite side, without creating an obstacle to the closure of the dentition;
do not interfere with the motor activity of the lower jaw;
do not cause allergic reactions and tissue irritation.
All constructions of this type have their pros and cons.
Of all types of dentures, this one has a number of positive qualities, in some cases giving advantages over other types of prosthetics:
rapid restoration of appearance and chewing function;
a large selection of materials for prosthetics;
proper load distribution, eliminating the risks of erasability of adjacent teeth and malocclusion;
prevention of destruction of parotid tissues and atrophy of bone tissue of the jaw;
the possibility of installing several prostheses at once;
if the root is partially destroyed, it is possible to install the prosthesis on the pin, if there is no root at all on the implant (titanium root).
Indications for the installation of dental crowns.
Dental crowns are installed for the following diseases and conditions:
injuries and pathological processes of hard dental tissues, accompanied by the destruction of crowns by more than half and the impossibility of restoration by filling, - deep caries, increased erasability, fractures and dislocations, wedge-shaped defects;
congenital and acquired defects in the shape, height and position of teeth; congenital underdevelopment of crowns (hypoplasia);
discoloration of teeth fluorosis, darkening after treatment;
for support with partially removable and non-removable prostheses;
as part of another orthopedic design, for example, splinting loose teeth in periodontal diseases (periodontitis or periodontal disease).
