Yes: You can break porcelain in the same way that you can break a tooth. While we have very strong ceramics today, excess force must be dissipated in some way. Teeth can be loosened, or become sensitive. So, the real question is how do I reduce the force in my mouth so none of these things occur. It is correcting a bad bite that is key, not stronger materials. ...Read more
Inflamation of gut: Anywhere from the beginning (mouth) to the end (rectum) of your eating system can be affected by crohn's disease. It has lots of ways it can effect you and many times it is hard to diagnose because it is so vague. If you think you have it, eventually you will need to have a doctor take of piece of tissue (called a biopsy) from a spot they think is crohn's to send to the lab and know for sure. ...Read more
Costs: Crowns are expensive because there are many costs that go into making one. First, there is the actual lab bill that the dentist must pay to have the crown made. Secondly, the dentist must use many expensive materials when the crown is prepped in the patients mouth. There is also the expense of the overhead of paying for the salary of the assistant(s) as well as the dentist's time. ...Read more
Cause of Conn's:
37F from PA "what causes Conn's Syndrome?"
Classically due to adrenal adenoma making excess aldosterone.

Gagging: Chronic gagging is due to a hypersensitivity on the pharynx. You could try to anesthetize the area to stop the feedback loop of feeling like there is something there. You can try viscous lidocaine. Your doctor can write for it. It is 2% solution. If this does not work you can try gabapentin. You will need a prescription for this and a doctor's visit. Good luck. Feel better. ...Read more

Tooth movement: What seems like slight movement to you could be 1 of 2 things. If the crowns are loose due to movement away from the supporting tooth, something is wrong & needs to be evaluated. However, the crowns may seem "loose" when in fact the teeth holding them may have some movement. Teeth are not like poles in cement. They may move slightly due to bruxism or food impaction. If due to gum disease->bad! ...Read more

Don't use superglue!:
If you mean "lose" as in cannot find, then you'll have to see a dentist to make a new one.
If you mean "lose", like came off the tooth while eating and i still have the crown in my possession, then don't use superglue to replace it. Drugstores usually have temporary glue you can use, but eventually you'll have to see a dentist to get it replaced properly. This is much less costly than a new one. ...Read more

If talking about chronic thromboembolism that leads to pulmonary hypertension then need to discuss with your lung doctor. As with most diseases, it depends on the cause and is the cause reversible or controllable or not. ...Read more

Astrology: This is a science and real-medicine forum. I learned about the various systems of divination as a kid, and discovered that astrology and so forth are actually just systems of lay counseling using the stars and planets and diagrams like the "natal chart" as props for showmanship. ("You have Mars in Libra and can get a better job if you work hard to retrain.") It has no predictive value by itself. ...Read more
Worsening Airflow: This describes the result of repeated pulmonary irritations. Impaired air exchange leads to other chronic problems too. So, it is not a pleasant diagnosis as it tends to worsen. People who address it asap can definitely slow, maybe even stop the progress. Lifestyle changes and chronic disease self-mgmt groups are very helpful - find one! http://patienteducation.Stanford.Edu/programs/cdsmp.Html. ...Read more
Some risk: The presence of the crown will protect the underlying tooth from further infection and decay. If you delay in getting it fixed, you may find that you need further tooth removal and a new crown. Better to find out sooner, rather than later. Also decay is a common reason that crowns will fall out so you might be beyond this point anyway. ...Read more

Losing more than 1/3: Of the tooth due to decay/fracture weakens it and needs either an inlay, onlay, or a crown depending on the extensivity of the lost structure. The remaining walls of the tooth usually requires a core build up with a resin material prior to preparation to receive a crown to protect and restore the normal anatomy and function of a tooth. Crowns like veneers are also used for cosmetic purposes. ...Read more
