Dental Crowns vs. Dental Implants | Which is Better?

Dental Implants and Dental Crowns - both are options that can be utilized to fill up the space of missing teeth. The recommended advice depends entirely on your dentist, to what procedure can be your best option for ideal dental health. Dental Implants work by attaching new teeth to the jawbone, while dental crowns support the natural teeth in your mouth. Both of these procedures almost cost the same expenses, but the final choice will always be yours, which is why you need to know the difference in detail.

Dental Crowns
Most dental crowns these days are used for cosmetic purposes, and porcelain or ceramic materials are the first choice of everyone to fix over your pre-existing teeth. When teeth are missing, dental crowns work with the support of bridges. A fixed or cemented bridge fills the gap of the missing tooth. This protects your remaining teeth from breaking or falling off. In case of one missing teeth, two crowns are attached on the ends of a bridge, and replacement tooth is attached in the middle of the bridge for permanent and secure hold in the mouth.

Dental Implants
Contrary to the Dental Crown procedure, Dental Implants sound a bit more terrifying. When you hear about a titanium cylinder, blades and screws inside your jawbone, you feel afraid. This is one under anaesthesia, so there would not be any pain at the time, and implants are always recommended only in extreme cases of missing teeth and damage. After the procedure when the implants are fully attached to your jawbone, the dentist will attach a prosthetic tooth over the implant to create a natural feel as well as to maintain the health of the bone.

Dental Implants are pretty cemented in their place; meaning that they do not have the chance to slip or shift from their place. They are stable and rock hard at their place just like natural teeth, enabling you to eat, chew and speak normally and comfortably. Another advantage of dental implants is that they maintain the shape and contour of your face; because most people having missing teeth face the problem of face shape irregularity.

Implants vs Crown: Which is better?
When it comes to the big debate about dental crowns and implants, it can be pretty tough to figure out the winner. Dental crowns protect the teeth, whereas the dental implants work like natural teeth for regular functioning of the teeth. Implants are known to reduce any strain on teeth as well as offer a variety of combinations in the procedures and materials. Whereas dental crowns can feel a little straining as well as there is not much variety in combinations.

In case you are rooting for dental implants, you should know that in terms of maintenance, you actually might be right about it. This is because cleaning the dental implants is very easy, it works just like our normal teeth so we can clean them along with our regular toothbrush. These also demand less maintenance and are more functional in helping you to chew and eat food easily. This is one of the most prominent contrasts that Implants have with Dental Crowns. Dental Implants, if invested on high quality, can last over a lifetime! But Dental crowns need to be checked, maintained and even change after 15 years at most.

A little drawback here to point out is that dental implants have to be fixed by surgical methods, and dental crowns are relatively easier. So, a complete surgical procedure for a dental implant is necessary, whether you are comfortable with it or not.

Conclusion
In case you are suffering from significant damage such as missing teeth or jaw bone loss, dental implants are highly recommended as they are bound to fix your jawbone and fill the gap of missing teeth as well. This procedure will take about 3 to four appointments to the doctor. The dental implants need to be fixed along with healthy bone for good results and strong teeth set. In case you are suffering from chipped teeth or damaged teeth, dental crowns are ideal. These are less costly, easier to get, less painful and quicker to get done with. The dental crown procedure causes about 2 to 3 visits to the dentist at most. In case you are low on cash, you can go for the crowns, but other than that, dental implants are ideal as they function like natural teeth.
