Do you take good care of your teeth?

Where are they made?
As explained, crowns are mostly performed in the laboratory by a dental technician . Some works can benefit from a scanning technique (virtual model on screen created from a specific software).
The prices mentioned above are indicative. They vary by practitioner, city or region. It should be noted that the cost of the metal is extra and if precious metals are used, the price of these metals is indexed to the price of gold.
Each of these crowns is indifferently reimbursed 75.25 euros by the primary health insurance fund (CPAM).
Before starting the care, an estimate must be given to the patient in which the dentist will have to mention the type of prosthesis, the materials used and a possible alternative treatment in order to lead to the informed consent of the patient.
Do not hesitate to take a second opinion from another dentist.
The patient can also request a traceability sheet of the products that go into the composition of his prosthesis. This traceability must include the CE standard of the products and their batch number (European Directive 93/42).
Moreover, for financial reasons, non-metropolitan and non-EEC care is increasingly practiced. but with the risk of many problems in the follow-up of care.
Better information on oral hygiene and food hygiene has greatly reduced tooth loss problems, as well as the age of dental prosthesis placement.
It is strongly recommended to carry out check visits to your dentist every 6 months or at least once a year and not to wait to consult in case of doubt or pain. This can save you from heavy and expensive care. and in particular the laying of a dental crown.

The difference between a crown and a dental implant?
A crown makes it possible to reconstitute the visible part of the tooth (that comes out of the gum) when it misses a large part (and that it is impossible to treat and reconstruct with only one amalgam).
A dental implant is the complete reconstruction of a tooth. This solution is considered when there is more natural root and the bone mass on which the implant is based is sufficient.Do you want to share, share your experience or ask a question?
