What Are Implant Crowns?
Implant crowns are artificial tooth that is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. The implant crown comprises a metal post and a visible, natural-looking crown. The posts are typically made from titanium and are designed to fuse with your jawbone over time. This process, known as osseointegration, helps secure the implant. Once the post is placed, a crown is then attached to it. These are custom-made to match your natural teeth and can be crafted from porcelain or ceramic.
Benefits of Implant Crowns
Implant crowns offer a more permanent solution to missing teeth and provide several other benefits, including:
- Improving appearance and self-confidence
- Preserving jawbone density and strength
- Enhancing the ability to chew foods more effectively
- They can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance
- They look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Implant Crowns Vs. Traditional Crowns: What's The Difference?
Implant crowns differ from traditional crowns in that they are placed directly into the jawbone. Traditional crowns, on the other hand, are placed over an existing natural tooth. Implant crowns provide a more permanent solution and last much longer than traditional ones. Additionally, because implant crowns are secured to the jawbone, they help preserve its density and strength.
Who Can Benefit From This Procedure?
Implant crowns are an excellent option for those looking to replace missing teeth or enhance their smile. Patients with good oral health and healthy gums are the best candidates for this procedure. If you have any underlying dental issues, Dr. Flores will assess them during your consultation to determine whether implant crowns are the right choice.
