Why do you need dental implant crowns?

Dental implant crowns can be used for patients who have lost one or more teeth. During this procedure, an implant is surgically placed in an opening made by the dentist in the jawbone. Generally, the placement of a crown on an implant is done in an anterior esthetic area or in the molar region. Once the implant is properly screwed or cemented, it acts as a new root for the crown to replace the missing tooth. The crown looks like a natural tooth. It is attached to the implant and fills the edentulous space.

How is a crown placed on a dental implant?

For this procedure to be successful, the surrounding teeth must be healthy and there must be enough bone in the jaw. In addition, the bone must also be strong enough. If necessary, your dentist may recommend a bone graft. The time required to complete the implant and crown depends on several factors. Traditional placement methods are completed within a period that can vary between 5 and 6 months, depending on the case. This includes surgical procedures and the placement of the permanent crown, but some other procedures may be faster. However, the process may take a little longer, especially if it involves a bone graft. Your dentist is the best person to ask about this.

Maintenance and post-operative follow-up

Following the placement of the crown on a dental implant, you will be able to take care of your implants in the same way as you take care of your natural teeth. It is recommended to brush and floss twice a day. Afterwards, you will probably need to see your dentist again for a follow-up appointment, which is usually done within 6 months of the operation.
