If you are missing a tooth and want a more definitive replacement, you may want to consider an implant crown. Implant dentistry is today’s gold standard for replacing missing teeth, touted by the American Dental Association (ADA) as one of the most significant advances in dentistry over the past 40 years. Your implant restoration will provide unmatched stability, durability, and aesthetics, only second to natural, healthy teeth.

What Are Implant Crowns?

Implant crowns are stable, reliable, and aesthetic restorations that provide an outstanding solution to replace damaged or missing teeth. An implant crown comes in three parts: the implant, abutment, and crown.

The Implant:

The dental implant is a small screw-shaped post made of titanium that Dr. Price places to replace the missing tooth root.

The Abutment:

The abutment is a connector that’s attached to the implant and holds the implant crown securely in place.

The Crown:

The crown is the tooth replacement that’s made to match your natural teeth, restoring your beautiful, healthy, and functional smile.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

When a tooth is lost, it’s usually followed by bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants are the only tooth replacements that mimic the function of natural tooth roots, providing bone stimulation and preventing bone loss in the area. Implant crowns look just like your natural teeth, delivering seamless results.

Because your implant crown is anchored to a firm foundation, you will be able to eat as you would with your natural teeth and speak clearly and confidently. Moreover, placing an implant crown will stop the surrounding teeth from shifting toward the gap, preventing crooked teeth and problems with the bite.

Implant dentistry provides a predictable and long-lasting tooth replacement solution with more than a 95 percent success rate. With proper care, your implant crown has the potential to last a lifetime!

Are You a Candidate for an Implant Crown?

Candidates for implant dentistry should have good oral and overall health, be willing to maintain a healthy oral hygiene regimen, abstain from smoking in the healing period, or prepare to completely stop smoking to ensure the procedure’s success long after placement. They must also have good bone density to support the implant. If you’ve been missing teeth for some time and have suffered bone loss, Dr. Price may recommend a bone graft to rebuild the bone in the area and allow you to enjoy the many benefits of implant dentistry.

What Is the Dental Implant Procedure?

Dr. Price will start with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the condition of your bone. He will also take impressions and match the color of your teeth to ensure your implant restoration looks just like your natural teeth.

The implant process will begin with the implant placement. Dr. Price will make a small incision and place the titanium implant post in your jawbone. During the healing period, which may take a few months, the jawbone will begin to grow around the implant and fuse to it in a process called osseointegration.

Once your implant is stable, Dr. Price will attach the abutment to the implant and wait for the gums tissue to heal. The last step is creating your artificial tooth or crown. The resulting restoration will leave you with results that are as close as you’ll get to having natural, healthy teeth.
