Implant Crowns Simi Valley

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with strong, durable materials that enhance the smile. Implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth and can be used in conjunction with other procedures, such as crowns, to restore a healthy smile.

Dental implant crowns often look and feel like natural teeth and are fused to the bone to provide stability. They may be indistinguishable from natural teeth. The use of porcelain crowns creates a smooth, metal-free appearance that fits in seamlessly with the other teeth.

Benefits Of An Implant Crown

Tooth loss is often a result of tooth decay, gum disease, trauma or congenital effects. Missing teeth can cause low self-esteem, eating problems, speech problems, and further tooth damage. While dentures and bridges are also used to replace missing teeth, implant crowns have many benefits over these procedures. Some of the benefits of implant crowns include:

  • Improved appearance
  • Improved speech
  • Improved oral health
  • Durability
  • Convenience
  • Comfort

The Implant Crown Procedure

The implant crown process usually takes place over several phases.

First Phase

Implantation is a surgical procedure that requires healthy gums and bones to support the root and replacement material. Local anesthesia is used for the procedure. The implant procedure includes placing a titanium screw into the gum to serve as an anchor. After three to six months of osseointegration, where the bone heals and fuses to the anchor or implant, the implant process can continue.

Second Phase

When completely healed, a temporary crown is placed over the implant to let the gum grow naturally around it so the area is protected while a permanent crown is made. The permanent crown is placed shortly after. The crown is then bleached to match the color of the other teeth.

Using a crown with an implant restores the strength and physical appeal of the lost tooth without affecting any other teeth. Implant crowns require a commitment of proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits. With proper care, crown implants can last as a lifelong solution for missing teeth.

 


FAQ

What Are The Benefits of Implant Crowns?

Implant crowns are essential for patients who are missing one or more of their teeth. But rather than simply be a replacement, crown implants have benefits that you may not have expected. The first notable benefit is the cosmetic appearance of implant crowns. Implant crowns look almost identical to a natural-looking tooth.

This is because the color and shading of the implant crowns are made to match the rest of your teeth. Self-consciousness and embarrassment are common, but people should never feel bad about themselves when their teeth are not in the best shape. Due to the natural-looking appearance of implant crowns, no one will ever know the difference!

Another notable benefit is how implant crowns can help preserve your jaw’s bone. Bone loss is inevitable when someone loses their teeth. Having an implant crown installed can help preserve the bone. This is accomplished through a process known as osseointegration, which is when an implant and jawbone fuse together.

One of the best benefits of implant crowns is that they are an effective, long-lasting solution. Implant crowns can last for decades whenever someone needs extensive dental repair. However, that does not mean you do not have to take care of them. In order to preserve your implant crowns, proper oral hygiene is required.

Who Should Not Get Implant Crowns?

Despite the benefits of implant crowns, a select few people may be unable to get them. If you have bruxism, which is when a person excessively grinds their teeth, you may not be eligible for implant crowns. This is because grinding can cause significant damage to the implant, lowering its effectiveness.

Below are other reasons why you may not be able to have implant crowns:

  • You have diabetes
  • You have gum disease
  • You have jaw irradiation
  • You drink alcohol
  • You are a smoker

Make sure to tell Dr. Patterson during your appointment so he can determine the best course of action.
