Implant crowns: reliability, durability, and aesthetics

Modern dentistry can restore functionality and aesthetic appearance to the dentition. Lost teeth can and should be restored to avoid possible complications and regain confidence in their own irresistibility.

Crown or implant: which design should I prefer?

After a full examination, passing the necessary tests, you can go right to the next step – surgery and choosing a design for the future tooth. “What is better to put: a crown or an implant?”- this is a question the dentist hears many times from patients. Not everyone understands the intricacies of dental techniques, often people confuse these concepts, meaning “implantation” and “prosthetics”. What is the difference between an implant and a crown? The implant is a titanium root that is implanted directly into the bone tissue, it is also an artificial root and support. The crown is the visible part that is attached to the abutment (the transition element to the titanium rod). Implantation is the most reliable way to restore the functionality and aesthetic appearance of the dentition.

Installing the crown on the implant: stages of the procedure.

In dentistry, various methods are used to restore the beauty, naturalness and functionality of a smile. For each individual case, the methods of performing the surgery and the recovery period will differ. How long does it take to put the crown on the implant? Initially, the titanium screw itself is installed, after that it will take from 4 to 6 months to complete healing, and it will also take several weeks to form the contour of the gum around the future tooth. Placing the crown on the implant is the final step in restoring the dentition. This is the most anticipated moment for the client, because he will be able to enjoy the reflection of a perfect smile in the mirror, feel a new tooth to the touch, smile without hesitation and eat your favorite food.

How is the crown placed on the implant?

In order for the prosthesis to serve faithfully for more than one year, perform all functions on a par with the native teeth, it is important to listen to the recommendations of the attending doctor. The process requires professionalism from the dentist and trust from the patient. To form the gums and prevent soft tissue loss, it is recommended to install a temporary crown on the implant. In most cases, temporary structures are made of plastic, they are not designed for high chewing loads, and it takes from one to several days to manufacture.

How is the crown attached to the implant?

A transition element – an abutment-is installed between the rod and the visible part of the tooth. Cement fixation of the crown is the most reliable, strong and durable method. The advantages of this method of fixation are the simplicity and aesthetics inherent in non-removable products. Excess dental cement is removed, and the doctor gives instructions on oral care.

Does it hurt to put a crown on the implant?

The professionalism of specialists, the use of advanced techniques and modern painkillers make the treatment process painless and comfortable for each client of Sobolevsky dentistry. Can a person feel pain and discomfort after placing the crown on the implant? Pain may occur within a few days after implantation of the titanium root. As a rule, the attachment is performed without anesthesia, a person can feel a slight pressure in the gum area directly at the moment when the doctor fixes the entire structure on the cement.

Types of crowns on the implant: main differences and characteristics.

There are several options that differ in the duration of the term of service and the materials of manufacture:

  • Ceramic. Products made of pressed ceramics have excellent strength, do not differ in color from their native teeth, pass light, do not cause allergic reactions and darkening. These characteristics are very important for restoring the natural appearance of teeth in the smile area.
