Loose Dental Implant Crown


Loose Dental Implant Crown

There are "many" reasons why a dental crown may get loose (a cemented crown). The first thing our Denver dentist examines is to make sure it is the dental crown and not the entire dental implant that was fused to the bone is loose. Dental implants fuse to the bone through a process of osseointegration and verifying that this is still intact is important. "assuming" that the implant is still securely fused to the bone... other technical elements may be causing the crown to be loose.

The most common cause of loose dental implant crowns

Our Denver dentist have found over the years that the most common reason why dental crown appear loose is that the "abutment" screw has become loose. The abutment screw is the screw that fixes the abutment on top of the dental implant. The dental crown is fabricated to fit on top of this abutment.

The "easy" fix

There may not be an easy fix but if it exists the easiest would be to loosen the cement used to cement the dental crown to the abutment. This "most of the time" is the weak link in this chain. "If" our Denver dentist is able to remove the crown from the abutment then they can simply tighten the screw down and re-cement the crown back on. In some cases a new a abutment screw is needed and has to be ordered from the manufacturer.

More complex solution to a loose dental crown over an implant

The above scenario at times does not work. The next solution would be to drill through the dental crown to the access the abutment screw. "If" the abutment screw can be found relatively easy then tightening or replacing the screw is in order. In the worst case scenario the crown... abutment or dental implant can be damaged and starting over is the only solution.

The good news

The good news is complex crown removal is an uncommon occurrence. A vast majority of dental implant crowns need no maintenance and our Denver dentist have many dental implant crowns out 20+ years that have had no maintenance issue. In addition, dental implants help preserve bone that would melt away from the extraction site in time if the implant was not place.

  4. I've read an article recently about what to look for in a cosmetic dentist. I guess what's very important is the dentist's skills, education, and testimonials from past and existing patients. Just three months ago, I was able to get good dental implants. Lexington, like my friend said, is a good place here in SC for dental makeovers.

  5. Loose dental crowns are possibly a cause of concern not only for the patient but also fir the dentist. One should be very careful with the material used as it may make or mar the chances of the crown

  7. My dad has a loose dental crown, and he just had them a month ago. After that he immediately changed his dentist and replaced him with a very competent cosmetic dentist. Chicago business world needs to have an aesthetically appealing workforce to deal with other people. And my dad is in that world and he always see to it that he looks dignified every time. After having his new crown he tried painless laser dentistry (Chicago) to have his smile makeover and he totally loved the result.

  9. The tightness of a dental crown depends on how dentists measure the size of the treated tooth. Their measurements should be exact - not too tight or loose - in order for the crown to fit perfectly. It also depends on the material used for it. For me, the best materials are either ceramic or gold.

  10. Osseointegrated dental implants are the state of the art in modern dentistry. They are small titanium "fixtures" that take the place of the natural root of the tooth. Gently implanted into the bone, using local anesthesia, these very tiny titanium roots actually bond or integrate with a patient's bone, more securely than natural root would. Most often, the osseointegrated implant is more stable than a natural tooth's root. Upon these implants, we can build permanent teeth, custom designed and shaded to aesthetically suit each patient's distinctive facial requirements.

  11. When a tooth is fractured, has a large old filling, or is severely damaged by decay, your dentist may recommend the placement of a crown. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile.
