I have had 5 crowns installed in rearmost upper right. Since it is the last tooth it likes to travel causing poor contact with forward tooth (a gap) and leading to food impaction etc. It is a root canal tooth that travels, with a non-root canal crowned tooth in front of it. Recent consults with new dentists want to redo the crown. I say if we keep doing what we are doing we will keep getting what we are getting. Is there a solution that will avoid continued gum disease between the teeth? Like a double crown that is connected? Thanks Steve

  • If the food impaction is there between the two crowns that means the contact between the teeth is not tight.As the last tooth has no other tooth behind so tha gap tends to develop between the two crowned teeth. The best option is to go for the combined crowns instead of separate crowns. In that case the gap will not develpo between the two crowns and the gum problem because of food impaction will be solved.
