A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is an artificial tooth used to cover damaged, decayed, misshapen, or discolored teeth in order to protect and/or restore it. Dental onlays on the other hand are restorations that are used for teeth damaged by vacaties, decays, or fractures.
Your dentist is the best person to help you determine whether you should get a dental crown or an inlay. Contact us today to book an appointment to see if you should get onlays or crowns.
The dental implant procedure consists of several steps. First, your dentist will examine your mouth and take x-rays to find out if dental implants are right for you. If your dentist determines that implants are suitable.
The actual surgery is often done in several stages to allow the jawbone to heal completely around the implant before the finishing work is done. In some cases, the jawbone must be grafted.
The next step is to place the tooth root implant into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The jawbone will heal around the root implant, keeping it securely within your jaw. This healing process can take between 6 and 12 weeks, depending on the individual.
After you heal, the next step will be to place an abutment – which is a small connector post – to the implant. The new tooth, or crown, which is made based off of impressions of your teeth, is then installed onto the abutment. At this point, your implant will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
