The Lifespan of Dental Crowns

The Lifespan of Dental Crowns

When we at Innovative Dental talk to patients who need dental crowns, they almost always ask one question, “How long will my crown last?”   The answer is that dental crowns can last rather varied periods of time. In some cases they have lasted for several decades, but with poor care have been known to last just a few years. The lifespan of a dental crown is often dependent on you and the quality of crown you are given.

While no exact prediction can be made for how long a particular crown will last, Innovative Dental takes pride in being able to provide crowns that are able to last as long as possible, and we always strives to deliver nothing but the highest quality crowns for residents of Moonee Ponds and surrounds.

Because good information, good dentistry, and good aftercare are necessary to optimize crown life, we offer the following information and advice on keeping your crowns around for a very long time!

Root Canal Treatment And You - Moonee Ponds dentist

Root Canal Treatment And You

When most people hear the phrase “root canal”, they panic. The good news is that with today’s improved local anaesthetics, state of the art equipment, and advanced treatment root canals no longer have to cause fright. Root canals are now a common procedure, and at Innovative Dental’s Moonee Ponds office we are expertly practiced in the procedure.

Root canal is a procedure for damaged teeth that helps avoid extraction. Tooth damage can come from many sources –trauma, fracture from an injury, cracked fillings, or from a poor oral hygiene. While there are many things that can cause damage or decay to your teeth, there are also effective methods by which you can save those teeth, and one of those methods is root canal treatment.

The Importance Of Mouthguards

The Importance Of Mouthguards

Most sports have the chance of contact, and with contact can come dental damage. This damage can be debilitating, difficult to treat, and often cannot completely be repaired. That is why Innovative Dental stands with the Australian Dental Association and Sports Medicine Australia in believing that mouthguards are not an optional part of sports gear, rather they are one of the most important pieces of sports gear, and should always be used.

We oftentimes think of mouthguards as a necessity for hard contact sports including rugby league, rugby union, boxing, MMA, hockey and AFL. But the truth is all sports, even those that are supposedly non-contact, carry a real risk of strikes, collisions, and impacts
