Dental Implant Crowns – Different Types
What are Dental Implant Crowns?
Implant crowns are dental restorations that are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They are designed to be permanently affixed to dental implants surgically implanted into the jawbone. Advanced Dental Clinic Delhi has different types of Dental Implant Crowns available.
The material for your implant crown will depend on several factors, including the missing tooth’s location, budget, and desired aesthetic outcome.
In the information provided below, we will briefly discuss the types and the aftercare required to maintain a long-lasting result- brought to you by Advanced Dental Clinic Delhi.
Types of Dental Implant Crowns
Porcelain or ceramic implant crowns
Porcelain or ceramic implant crowns are made from high-quality dental porcelain or ceramic material, shaped and colored to match the surrounding teeth. They are known for their natural appearance and are often used to replace front teeth because they can be color-matched to adjacent teeth.
Zirconia implant crowns
Zirconia is a type of ceramic material that is extremely strong and durable. Zirconia implant crowns are often used in areas of the mouth that require extra strength and durability, such as the back molars.
It is a brand of all-ceramic dental crowns made from lithium disilicate glass-ceramic material. These crowns are known for their high strength, durability, and natural-looking appearance.
The eMax crowns are popular because they can be used in various dental applications, including crowns, veneers, and bridges. They can be used to restore damaged or decayed teeth, cover stained or discolored teeth, and replace missing teeth.
One of the main advantages of eMax crowns is their high strength and durability. They are designed to withstand the normal wear and tear of everyday use, and they are less likely to chip or crack than other types of dental crowns.
In addition, eMax crowns are highly aesthetic and can be matched to the color of your natural teeth for a seamless and natural-looking result. The material’s translucency allows the crown to blend in with the surrounding teeth, making it virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth.
Aftercare of Dental Implant Crowns
Brush and floss regularly: Brushing and flossing regularly is essential to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent plaque buildup, which can cause gum disease and other dental problems. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste to clean your implant crowns gently.
Use an antimicrobial mouthwash: An antimicrobial mouthwash can help to kill bacteria in your mouth and reduce the risk of gum disease or infection around your implant crown.
Avoid hard or sticky foods: Hard or sticky foods can damage your implant crown or put pressure on the implant, which can cause it to become loose or fail. Avoid eating hard candy, popcorn, ice, and other hard or crunchy foods. Sticky foods like gum or caramel can also pull on the crown or implant and cause damage.
Quit smoking: Smoking can increase the risk of implant failure and other dental problems. Smoking can reduce blood flow to the gums and bone around the implant, making it more difficult for the implant to fuse with the bone.
Schedule regular check-ups: Regular check-ups with your dentist or oral surgeon are essential to ensure the health of your implant crown and identify any potential problems early on.
