Tooth Implant & Crowning Job

Dental implants involve placing an artificial tooth root into the jaw in order to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Tooth implants are a popular option for people who have lost teeth due to injury, periodontal disease or for some other reason.

Good Candidates for Tooth Implants

Ideal candidates considered good for tooth implants will be in good oral & general health. They should also have adequate bone in the jaw so as to support the implant along with having healthy gum tissue free of periodontal disease. Dental experts are known as periodontists precisely specialize in dental treatments like tooth implants & from important members of the tooth implant team. Periodontists have special knowledge & experience of working with other dental professionals along with training & facilities for performing dental implant operations.

Types of Tooth Implants

There are two main types of dental implants which are mentioned below.

  • Endosteal Dental Implants – Embedded within the jaw bone, endosteal dental implants are the most common type of tooth implants. These come in various types including blades, cylinders or screws which are surgically placed within the jaw bone. Each dental implant is meant to hold either one or more prosthetic teeth. Endosteal dental implants are generally used as an alternative for people wearing removable dentures or dental bridges.
  • Subperiosteal Dental Implants – These types of dental implants are placed on top of the jaw bone. The subperiosteal metal framework’s posts protrude through bums in order to hold the prosthesis. Subperiosteal dental implants are normally used for people who are having minimal bone height & are unable to wear traditional dentures.

Tooth Implant Procedure

Dental implant procedure is a team effort between the patient, dentist & the periodontist. Dentist & the periodontist in consultation with the patient will determine as to how tooth implants should be placed. Subsequently, the periodontist will work out a treatment plan customized to meet requirements depending upon the type of dental implant chosen & the specific condition of the patient.

  • Replacement of Single Tooth – One tooth implant & a single crown can replace one missing tooth.
  • Replacing Many Teeth – Dental implant-supported bridges can replace when there are several missing teeth.
  • Replacing All Teeth – Dental implant supported full denture or full bridge can effectively replace when a patient is missing all teeth.
  • Ridge Modification – There may be inadequate jaw bone for placement of dental implants among patients with deformities in lower or upper jaw. Gum is normally lifted away from ridge to expose bony defect in order to correct such a problem. Subsequently, the defect is filled with bone or bone substitute in order to build up the ridge. Ridge modification greatly improves appearance while increasing chances of successful tooth implants which can last for many years to come.
  • Sinus Augmentation – Key to successful dental implants is the quality & quantity of bone available at the place where these are to be put. Conventionally, the upper back jaw has been one of the most difficult areas for placing tooth implants due to the fact that this region has insufficient bone quality & quantity due to close proximity to sinuses. In such cases, sinus augmentation will be helpful in correcting this problem involving raising the sinus floor alongside developing bone for placement of tooth implants.

Expectations Following Successful Dental Implant Treatments

Natural teeth require conscientious oral care at home & periodical visits to the dental clinic in order to keep healthy. Tooth implants are very much like natural teeth & therefore also require similar care. Brushing & flossing are also equally important so as to keep dental implants clean & free of plaque. Periodontists closely work with the tooth implant patient after treatment in order to develop the best plan for dental care. For this purpose, timely & regular follow-up visits will be scheduled for monitoring health of gums, teeth & dental implants.

Dental Crowns for Tooth Protection

Apart from a glowing smile, patients would require a crown to cover a tooth implant in order to help restore a normal size & shape. Crowns make teeth stronger along with improving appearance. Crowns are also helpful in strengthening teeth having large fillings in case there is little tooth remaining so as to hold fillings. Moreover, crowns are commonly used for attaching bridges, for protecting weak teeth from breaking or for restoring one which is already broken. It is a good procedure to cover teeth with crowns, especially when teeth are either badly shaped or discolored. Not to mention, it is also required for covering dental implants. Dentists commonly recommend crowns for correcting any of these above mentioned conditions.

  • Dentists Invariably Recommend Crowns Following Dental Implants

Primary concern of any dentist is to help the patient in keeping teeth healthy & bright. Crowns are commonly used for restoring appearance, shape & function of damaged teeth which are not yet lost. Therefore, crowns are routinely placed after a large filling of tooth, root canal treatment, over broken tooth & following tooth implants. Also known as a cap, crown is a hollow artificial tooth which is meant to protect the tooth from further damage

  • Crown Placement Procedure

At the beginning of the crown placement procedure the dentist will give a local anesthetic to the patient. The dentist will then file down the tooth which requires to be restored in order to make room for the crown. Subsequently, an impression of the filed tooth & nearby teeth is taken in order to make the final customized crown. Based upon this impression the new crown is made from restorative materials which are commonly used for fillings. The final shape of crown will be the right fit for the patient’s mouth.  However, the dentist may place a temporary crown over the tooth until a time the final crown is ready to be placed. Temporary crowns are generally made from impression of tooth taken prior to filing. This temporary tooth is basically meant to protect tooth until placement of the final crown. Temporary crown may however not have the same shape, or color of the final crown. The dentist will take off the temporary crown so as to place the final crown on the next visit to the clinic. They will also check so as to make sure that the final crown fits right, is of the right shape & color including bite. Lastly the dentist will cement the crown into place on completion of the crowning job following tooth implant.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are made up of various kinds of materials. The dentist will recommend a certain material or a combination of materials which is suitable for the patient depending upon which tooth requires a crown.

  • Porcelain Crowns – This type of crowns are closest to natural teeth. However, since they are more brittle in comparison with composite or metal crowns, they may chip more easily. Due to this fact, porcelain crowns are not normally placed on back teeth.
  • Metal Crowns – Commonly made of gold, metal crowns normally last a very long time & will not either chip or break. They also do not tend to wear down the opposing set of natural teeth. However, the only negative aspect is that the color of gold does not look natural, especially when they are visible on front teeth.
  • Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns – This type of crown is both natural & strong in comparison with composite or porcelain crowns. Moreover, they will not easily chip like ceramic or porcelain crowns. But then, depending upon the design, sometimes metal may show when gums shrink or thin down.
  • Composite Crowns – These crowns look very natural. Composite crowns will also not chip easily like porcelain crowns. However, they do tend to wear away more quickly because of chewing. Moreover, brushing of teeth also tends to remove the highly polished surface of composite crown & thereby also cause them to stain more easily.

Crowns are normally quite strong & last for about 10 years or more when properly cared for. Brushing & flossing crown should be performed daily just like it is done for natural teeth. However, crowns may not be so strong as to compete with natural teeth, therefore care must be taken not to bite down on hard objects or use them for cutting & opening things.
