A post and crown is used when there is not enough tooth structure left for retention after your root canal procedure to support a crown, a post will be placed upon the tooth root. Dr. Malkemus will then make a crown buildup around the post. After that, a crown will be placed on the buildup.
If you live in the Rohnert Park area and are suffering from tooth pain, call (707) 585-8595 and set up an appointment to have Dr. Malkemus check your teeth and relieve your pain today. Don't suffer needlessly with tooth pain. Let the friendly staff at George A. Malkemus, DDS help you smile again.
When a cavity is left untreated, it can become larger until it reaches the pulp of the tooth; this causes infection at the base of the root canal, and leads to the formation of an abscess. This process is generally painful and requires urgent attention for the sake of your tooth and comfort.
The process is decently simple; first, an opening is made through the crown of the tooth to access the pulp chamber. The pulp is then removed, and the root canals are cleaned, enlarged, and shaped. The infected area is medicated, and the root canals are filled. Finally, the crown opening is filled with a temporary filling.
