A crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that is either decayed, damaged or cracked. Crowns are made of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin or a mix of these materials. Porcelain generally has the most natural appearance, although it is often less durable.
The treatment plan for a patient receiving a crown involves:
Once the procedure is completed, proper dental hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing, is required to maintain healthy, bacteria-free teeth, gums and crowns. This helps in the prevention of gum disease. Given proper care, your crowns can last a lifetime.
A dental implant is replacement of a missing tooth root. It is placed in the jaw bone and over a few months the bone grows and attaches to the implant. Once the area heals, an abutment and a crown are attached to the implant and the result is the most predictable, longest lasting replacement of a missing tooth.
While the base implant(s) remains the same, there are several different methods of replacing several missing teeth. In this situation, multiple implants need to be placed and tooth replacement options are fixed or removable. A fixed option replaces some or all teeth and stays in the mouth such that the patient can not remove them. A removable option replaces all missing teeth and is removed by the patient. There are several factors that determine which treatment option is right for a given patient including patient desires, patient's oral health, amount and quality of jaw bone, and budget.
