What Are Implant-Retained Crowns?
Traditional crowns are placed over a decayed or damaged tooth to help support and protect it. An implant-supported crown may be used to replace a missing tooth. Most often, an implant-supported crown restores a single missing tooth, but in some cases, two teeth could be fused together and connected to the same implant. The implant helps hold the crown and makes it durable against grinding, chewing, and other factors. The crown is chosen to match the color and shape of your existing teeth to provide a beautiful and natural smile. As one of the latest advancements in advanced dentistry, Dr. Ernest De Paoli is pleased to offer implant-supported dental crowns to give his patients great results. Contact Advanced Smiles in Frisco, TX to learn more about implant-supported crowns as a means to restore missing teeth.
Who Is a Candidate for Implant-Retained Crowns?
The ideal patient for getting an implant-retained crown would be a person with good overall jaw and gum health who is missing one or more teeth. A missing tooth is more than just a cosmetic issue since it can make it tough to smile, eat, and talk. In addition, it can result in a shift in your other teeth that makes your bite uneven. An implant-retained crown could be an ideal choice to replace an old restoration if you'd like a more stable restoration with fewer dietary restrictions. Prior to recommending an implant-retained crown, Dr. De Paoli will go over all possible choices for tooth replacement and develop a treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.
What are the Benefits of Implant-Retained Crowns?
There are many reasons patients in Frisco, TX might choose to receive an implant-supported crown. They provide superior stability and functionality compared to conventional restorations since they are anchored into place. Dr. De Paoli also notes that implant-retained crowns provide a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Additional benefits include:
- Improved chewing and biting ability
- Long-lasting durability with proper care and maintenance
- Little to no discomfort during treatment
- Preserve the integrity of existing teeth
- Fewer food restrictions than with other restorations
How Do Implant-Retained Crowns Work?
The process of receiving an implant-supported crown generally occurs in two stages and might take a couple of months. The first step of the procedure involves the surgical placement of the implant into the jawbone. There is some recovery time required following this procedure, which could be about 2 – 3 months. Before the second stage, Dr. De Paoli will take impressions of your mouth so that your new crown can be made. After the implant has healed into your gums and jaw, the crown will be attached to the implant. If needed, Dr. De Paoli can make minor alterations to the crown and implant so that the fit is secure and comfortable.
