Crown on Implant

Why Replacement is Important

 

Once you lose a tooth, the immediate solution is to replace it, especially if it is a front tooth, but what happens, when you lose a tooth that is not visible when you smile? The tendency is to ignore it.

However, any missing tooth can have a negative impact on your quality of life, as well as dental and oral health. When we chew, a healthy tooth strengthens the quality of the bone; similar to how exercise protects against bone loss. Furthermore, when a tooth is missing, healthy teeth tend to shift position towards the gap due to bone loss, affecting how our upper and lower teeth meet.

This may affect how we place pressure on the teeth when chewing and have an impact on surrounding muscles and joints, resulting in pain and various other symptoms such as headaches or migraines. Hence, each tooth plays an important role in ensuring that teeth in front of and behind it stay in alignment as well as maintaining the health of the jaw bone.

How it Works

 

A ceramic crown on implant restores any tooth that is destroyed or damaged. It is individually made to match the shade and contour of your natural teeth, so practically no one can tell the difference.

If you are missing one tooth including the root, the dental crown is attached to a dental implant. The implant serves as a foundation for a dental crown. This method does not affect your other healthy adjacent teeth.

Advantages of Implants

 

  • Successful & Trusted- Dental implants are an accepted dental practice for over 40 years, and they are a successful and trusted method of tooth replacement.
  • Act Like Your Natural Tooth- You do not feel the difference between your natural teeth and the tooth implant. Your implant will provide stability and comfort, and can actually last a lifetime with proper care and good oral hygiene.
  • Minimally Invasive- Your adjacent healthy teeth are untouched, because, unlike conventional bridge, there is no need to grind down adjacent natural teeth.
  • Maintain Natural Bone- An implant will minimize further bone loss due to bone stimulation, which is one of their most important advantages.
