Can an Implant Crown Be Replaced?
Want to replace your Implant Crown? The difference between an implant crown and a dental crown is that implant crowns are placed over a dental implant that has been surgically inserted into a patient's jawbone due to a missing tooth, and a dental crown is a crown that has been placed over an existing natural that has been shaved down. Implant crowns are thus made for aesthetic reasons, and dental crowns are used to restore the integrity of a damaged tooth.
About implant crowns
Want to understand more about an implant crown? There are two different types of implant crowns: a cement-retained implant crown and a screw-retained implant crown. As the names imply, cement-retained crowns are held in place using a special dental cement and screw-retained implant crowns are held in place using a special dental screw. Since an implant crown can only be used for a dental implant, it is important to find an experienced dental professional when you are in need of a new implant crown.
Can an implant crown be replaced?
Yes, implant crowns can be replaced. The list below includes common reasons a dental patient would be in need of implant crown replacement services.
Because the crown is discolored
Even though crowns are stain-resistant, the older a crown gets, the more likely the crown will begin to discolor. All crowns come with a limited lifespan, making it a good idea to properly care for the crown so it will last for as long as possible. Crowns should be cared for the same way as natural teeth, which means brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day.
Because the crown has a chip in at
While crowns are made from strong and durable dental materials, it is possible for them to get chipped. Chips in crowns can occur because the crown was not properly placed when first inserted in the mouth or when someone has a bite problem, including temporomandibular joint disorder.
Because they can wear down over time
Implant crowns are made to resist everyday wear and tear, which means they are highly resistant when it comes to being worn down. However, there is a limited lifespan on all crowns, as they will eventually wear down over a period of time. Since implant crowns are made to last anywhere between 10 and 15 years, it is important to do everything possible to ensure that they last for at least this long.
