Screw Retained Implants that Perform and Last

Header - Screw Retained - smallDeLux offers high quality screw-retained crowns that are much quicker to fit than a cement-retained crown.

The results speak for themselves!


An Implant Solution That’s Simple and Practical

The choice of a screw-retained versus a cement-retained crown is a complex decision involving many points of consideration. DeLux Dental Laboratory offers both options. A screw-retained crown or bridge secured onto dental implants is often a great alternative to a cemented restoration. This offers a more secure bond than cement and removes any possibility of the complications that excess cement can occasionally cause.

How Do We Decide Whether to Use Cemented or Screw-Retained?

Page Image - Screw Retained 2The screw-retained crown has both benefits and liabilities. The main advantage is retrievability. The crown is not only recoverable, but no damage occurs upon removal of the crown. In the event of loosening or fracture, the crown can easily be removed. Cleaning, screw replacement and assessment of surrounding tissue is also possible.

Many dental professionals consider a yearly cleaning and replacement of screws a prudent approach. The longer the span, the more important salvaging becomes. Most dental professionals believe a long restorative span, cantilever or full arch dictates screw-retained crowns.
