Dental Implant Crowns

Tooth loss can be caused by various reasons such as genetics, gum disease, trauma, age, improper oral health care and poor eating habits. Dental Care of Nixa is with you every step of the way to help you protect your natural teeth and prevent decay and other dental problems. But sometimes, when your teeth have become too damaged for treatment, it may be necessary to extract non-restorable tooth and replace it with implant crowns.

Instead of using using a cemented bridge, you can opt for an implant and crown to replace multiple missing teeth. This type of corrective procedure retains the natural spaces between the teeth, allowing you to floss and brush easily. Dental implants are considered both as a type of prosthetic dental replacement and a cosmetic procedure to give you a more brilliant and perfectly aligned teeth.

How are dental implants placed?

A dental implant is actually a replacement for badly damaged tooth roots and crowns. The artificial tooth is screwed into the missing slot on the gumline to provide the patient with maximum strength and stability, even when they bite onto hard foods. Dental implants also maintain the jaw bone’s structure, helping keep your facial features properly aligned as well. A top-of-the-line dental crown is then capped onto the screw to make it look as if you have not lost the tooth at all.
