CROWN AND BRIDGES ON IMPLANTS
A single missing tooth can replaced with an implant above which crown which is fixed. Implant placement is a minor surgical procedure done under local anesthesia in a dental operatory. After the implant placement, osseointegration begins i.e. the association or union of dental implant with the surrounding bone. This process, can take several months, typically from 4-6 months depending on the bone quality and density.
When implants gets Osseo integrated the head of the implant is exposed and an impression is recorded. The impression is sent to a laboratory and a crown is fabricated. As per the choice of patient & area where prosthesis has to be given, a crown is fabricated i.e. either by metal- free lithium di-silicate or zirconia crown or PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crown. When more than one teeth is missing, then either joined crowns/ or a bridge is made with the help of implants.
We generally recommend a second visit to us after at least in a gap of 4-6 months as advised at the time of implant placement. But if the quality & quantity of bone along with other systemic conditions are fine, we can go for IMMEDIATE LOADING with Crowns during the same visit with a gap of 7-10 days from the visit of implant placement.
