Crowns on Implants are Loose: What Are My Options?

0 votes
I have 2 implants. The crowns have been in place for 5 years with temporary cement. They are side by side. Canine and tooth behind it. All of a sudden both crowns have become loose. My dentist keeps using temp cement but it will not hold as before. She does not want to use permanent in case I have a problem later on. Is this the best way to do this? What are my other options?

I am a german dentist with quite a lot of implant- expierience .There is an instrument
called Coronaflex,made by the german producer KAVO.With this device it is easily possible to take off permanently cemented crowns.
Good luck

The dentist can always cement the crowns with a stronger temporary cement, there are a great number of them.

An alternative is to cement the crowns with a hard permanent cement, which means that it would not inconvenience you because it gets loose.

The dentist may also need to check the bite. If your bite has changed in five years and those teeth are hitting hard and loosening the crowns, the bite may need to be adjusted before something breaks.

Hope this helps.
