However, the treatment options for a single missing tooth are different and include a fixed bridge, an implant-supported crown, and a removable partial denture. The best way…
6 Benefits of Implant Crowns?
As one of the more popular forms of tooth replacement, implant crowns have many advantages over other forms of treatment such as partial dentures or fixed bridges. It is helpful to be familiar with these benefits when determining whether implant crowns are right for you.
Implant crown advantages
Implant crowns are ideal for anyone who has one or several missing teeth and wants replacements that will last for decades, look great and preserve oral health. The following are six of the more notable benefits to choosing implant crowns to replace missing teeth.
1. Cosmetic appearance
Implant crowns look just about identical to natural teeth, and no one is likely to know the patient has replacement teeth unless they were to mention it. The shade of the crown matches the rest of the teeth, ensuring a natural appearance. This cosmetic advantage of implant crowns helps many in their daily life.
2. Increased confidence
The better someone looks, the more confident they are likely to be. Implant crowns often help patients achieve a smile they are truly proud of and enjoy showing off. The increased confidence leads many to become more social and pursue the things they love to do in life without fear of displaying their pearly whites.
3. Improved function
Some of the hardest adjustments to make after tooth loss occurs are in eating and speaking, which often become difficult. Many are forced to alter the way they eat, sticking primarily to soft foods that require little chewing. Fortunately, implant crowns allow patients to eat as they please and talk with clarity once again.
4. Preserving bone
Bone loss is inevitable once tooth loss occurs. Implant crowns work to preserve the health of the bone as the implant is placed into the jaw. A process called osseointegration takes place, which involves the jawbone and the implant fusing together, ensuring that bone deterioration does not take place. Dental implants are the only teeth replacement solution with this benefit.
5. Long-lasting solution
Implant crowns can typically last for decades before replacement or serious repair is required. Whereas dentures and fixed bridges may need repair more often, implant crowns can last for up to twenty-five years in many instances. Of course, proper care is essential to prolonging the life of implant crowns after placement.
6. Better oral health
Tooth loss often increases the risk of other oral health complications developing, such as oral infection, bone loss or gum recession. To preserve overall oral health, it is helpful to replace any missing teeth, and many cosmetic dentists consider implant crowns to be the most successful way to restore oral health back to an optimal level after tooth loss.
