Dentaltown - A close look at tooth eruption. Baby teeth are lost naturally due to pressure of the permanent teeth erupting from below. This process is called root resorption. Note the continued development of the permanent crown and root as it erupts.
Dentaltown - What can a dental crown do? • Repair broken or decayed teeth. • protect a weak tooth. • Replace a missing tooth (along with an implant). • Correct a misshapen tooth. • Beautify an unattractive tooth.
