To have a fully capable artificial tooth made of an implant, it will take stages. After the implant is put in place, the process is finalized by placing an artificial crown. It is this crown that will act like the natural part of the tooth that is used for chewing. The crown that physically brings the smile that you display. While the metal screw part of a dental implant can last a lifetime, the crowns mostly likely won't.
How Long Do Crowns Last
To say the exact length of time implant crowns will serve you is not easy. Estimates show that implant crowns can last between 10 to 15 years. Sometimes, they can serve you longer than 15 years or shorter than 10 years.
Accidents and trauma can bring an end to implant crowns' function and integrity instantly. Usage over time may lead to the wearing down of the crowns, hence shortening their life. If taken care of well in a cautious manner, their durability may exceed 15 years.
To have crowns that will last a lifetime is near impossible. However, the period they will last in good working conditions will depend on the individual. People are not alike. So, how crowns work for you will be different from the way they work for someone else.
Factors That Will Determine How Long Implants Crowns Last
Proper care will prolong the crown's life. Regular teeth cleaning is essential for keeping infection-causing bacteria away. Always commit yourself to regular dental checkups, as it will allow the dentist to monitor your implant crowns. In case of a problem, detection is made early enough to tackle it and prevent premature implant crown failure or damage.
