Discover the Benefits of Implant-Supported Crowns at Vail Family Dentist

Welcome to Vail Family Dentistry, your trusted dental care provider in Vail, AZ.  We’re excited to share with you the innovative solution of implant-supported crowns, a breakthrough in dental restorations. If you’re considering options for replacing a missing tooth, this information will guide you through the advantages of choosing an implant-supported crown.

Understanding Implant-Supported Crowns

The Limitations of Traditional Bridges:

Traditionally, a common solution for a missing tooth has been the fixed bridge. While effective, bridges often require the alteration of neighboring healthy teeth, which might otherwise not need any treatment. Additionally, the long-term costs can add up, as bridges may need replacement multiple times throughout your life. Research indicates a significant failure rate in the teeth adjacent to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture within just five to seven years.

A Superior Alternative:

Enter the implant-supported crown, a modern solution that addresses many of the drawbacks of traditional bridges. This advanced dental procedure involves a titanium “root” and post, which are surgically implanted into your jawbone. This acts as a sturdy foundation for the artificial tooth, cementing it securely in place.

Frequently Asked Questions About Implant-supported Crowns

What are the advantages of implant-supported crowns?

The Advantages of Implant-Supported Crowns:

1. Aesthetically Pleasing

Implant-supported crowns are crafted to match the natural shape, size, and color of your teeth, seamlessly blending with your smile. They offer a natural-looking solution that boosts your confidence.

2. Protects Oral Health

Unlike bridges, implant-supported crowns do not require the alteration of adjacent teeth. This means your healthy teeth remain intact, preserving your overall oral health.

3. Durability and Comfort

Due to their robust construction and integration with the jawbone, these crowns are incredibly durable and comfortable. They function just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile without any inconvenience.

4. Prevents Bone Loss

The implant plays a crucial role in preventing jawbone deterioration, a common issue with tooth loss. By stimulating the bone, it maintains your facial structure and oral health.

Am I a candidate for implant-supported crowns?

Implant-supported crowns are a fantastic option for many, but they might not be suitable for everyone. Factors such as jawbone density, overall health, and specific dental needs play a role in determining candidacy.

How to Find Out:

At Vail Family Dentist, we offer personalized consultations to assess your suitability for implant-supported crowns. Our experienced team will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your dental history and goals to determine the best course of action.

What is the process of getting an implant-supported crown?

1. Initial Consultation:

Your journey begins with a detailed consultation at our Vail, AZ office. Here, we’ll discuss your dental history, conduct necessary examinations, and create a customized treatment plan.

2. The Implant Procedure:

If you’re a suitable candidate, the next step is the implant procedure. This involves surgically placing the titanium post into your jawbone, which will serve as the foundation for the new crown.

3. Healing and Osseointegration:

After the implant is placed, a period of healing is required. During this time, a process called osseointegration occurs, where the implant fuses with the jawbone, ensuring a stable base for the crown.

4. Placing the Crown:

Once healing is complete, we’ll craft and attach the custom-made crown to the implant, restoring your smile to its natural beauty and function.

How do I care for my implant-supported crown?

Maintaining your implant-supported crown is straightforward and similar to caring for your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential to ensure the longevity of your implant.

5 Star Dental Patient Review

“An Awesome Experience!”

What an awesome experience! After having a horrible experience with another Vail Dentist Office, I decided to switch to Vail Family Dentistry. There was absolutely no comparison. Vail Family Dentistry had friendly knowledgeable reception staff, and the people in the back were wonderful as well. Dr. David was AMAZING. So nice and caring and NO UP SELLING. He looked at my X-rays, he proposed a cleaning, and that was it. He spent time with me discussing issues I had, gave me advice on how to handle them at home, game me supplies to use, and was kind to my 8 year old who I brought with me. I cannot thank them enough for restoring my faith in humanity, and alieving my fears of the dentist. The prices were fair, and I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Vail Family Dentistry. ~Chrystal Patterson
