Commonly dental implants are made up of titanium which is completely safe in MRI. Metal or metal ceramic crown could be made of various metals like stainless steel or cobalt-chromium etc among them few are safe in MRI and few are not. So,if you are not sure about the material of crown it is better to avoid MRI on that region.

MRI not indicated with dental Implants. Regarding rootcanal cap it depends on the material of the cap. If the cap is metal or metal ceramic MRI is not indicated in that region.
