Most commonly used are metal or zirconia crowns, or implant-supported dentures. Metal crowns are strong and durable and provide relatively good aesthetics at reasonable price, whereas zirconia is translucent similarly like natural human teeth providing extremely natural results.
Taking into account the number and site of the implants placed, different dental crowns or dentures can be used. Based on crown structures, implant-supported dental prosthesis can be divided into three cases: individual tooth, several lost teeth in a row, or edentulous jaw.
Prosthesis is most often performed under local anaesthesia, which is sufficient to prevent pain. For patients with dental anxiety or phobia, extremely sensitive teeth or uncontrollable nausea reflex, procedures can be performed using sedation – partial short-term narcosis which helps reducing anxiety, discomfort, and pain during certain procedures.
