Dental crowns and dental bridges are outstanding prosthetic restorations that allow the dentist to preserve severely damaged teeth. These restorations act as a cap that covers the tooth entirely. Therefore, protecting it from the mouth's forces while restoring its functionality and aesthetic aspect.
These restorations are meant to be permanent and shouldn't be replaced until there is an issue with them. Moreover, they usually last 20+ years.
For this reason, dentists bond dental crowns and bridges with highly durable cement. Therefore, the only way to remove a crown is by using a dental crown remover or cutting it in half.
A dental crown remover is a sturdy tool that allows the dentist to dislodge a prosthetic crown or bridge, regardless if it's a definite or provisional crown.
These tools are made of metal and function under a simple principle. The device applies percussion forces through its mechanism to the crown. This disrupts the bonding and causes the crown to dislodge.
The dental crown remover is large and heavy. This allows the dentist to apply enough force to comfortably dislodge the crown. Furthermore, it helps the dentist to do it effortlessly.
The crown remover can be equipped with different interchangeable tips. These tips have different shapes and sizes. Furthermore, they anchor under the crown to effectively remove it.
These tips are highly resistant. Therefore, they won't break regardless of how much force the dentist uses.
Additionally, these tips and dental crown removers can be sterilized on an autoclave sterilizer ug sa usa ka dry heat sterilizer.
To remove the crown, the dentist has to place the tip of the dental crown remover under the prosthetic crown. However, it is vital to find a spot where it anchors appropriately. This ensures that the tip removes the crown and will not slide out of its resting place.
It is usually recommended to place the tip on the proximal aspects of the tooth. If there is no good anchoring point in these areas, the dentist should rest it on the lingual or palatal side of the tooth.
Once the tip has been correctly positioned, the dentist must hit the rear end of the crown remover in an upward motion with the sliding metallic element.
This element slides along the large body of the tool.
The hit applies force to the tip that is placed under the crown. Therefore, causing it to dislodge.
Nonetheless, there are automatic dental crown removers that make the process easier. In this case, the dentist has to position the tip and press a button or a trigger. This activates the mechanism that dislodges the crown without manually hitting the rear device's end.
