Implant Supported Crowns

Implant supported crowns can be used in a wide variety of situations. They are an excellent option for people who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease.

How Does It Work?

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it integrates with the bone over time. Once the implant has fully integrated then, crown fabrication process is being started. The first step is taking an impression or digital scan over the placed implant post and sending it to a dental laboratory. In the lab implant supported crowns can be fabricated as either screw retained type or cement retained type based on the case. The next step is attaching the implant supported crown to the top of the implant either with a small screw or with the help of dental cement.

The result is a natural-looking, durable, and long-lasting replacement tooth that functions just like a natural tooth.

The benefits of an Implant Supported Crown?

  • Implant supported crowns offer several benefits over traditional bridges or dentures. Unlike bridges, implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support, so there is no need to file down healthy teeth to create anchors. Implants also stimulate the jawbone, which helps to prevent bone loss and maintain the structure of the face. They are also more stable and comfortable than dentures, which can slip or shift in the mouth, causing discomfort and embarrassment. With proper care and maintenance, implant supported crowns can last a lifetime, making them a wise investment in your oral health and overall wellbeing.
