Both have good effects and challenges. Here I will mention the very general effects of both and will mention how to avoid them. I will also mention the one, your dentist can sort out and the one he/she cannot.
Let’s start with the challenges of a dental implant
About the dental implants, your dentist can address almost all general issues, if he/she is enough expert in surgery, pre-surgery analysis, diagnose and enough experienced in this treatment.
Implants, in case are not placed well may cause some problem to the structures around, like the teeth beside it or vessels. You dentist must have a very good understanding of your body, bones and surrounding teeth before choosing the dental implant material, size, depth, etc. It is also quite critical to know where and how the dental implant is touching nerve. To avoid pain in gums or chin, dental implant must be placed very professionally on lower jaw. For sure, we have the same effects in addition to sinus problems, if dental implant is not placed well on upper jaw.
About the crown, things are not too similar
Dental crown is known as a less expensive treatment that gives the same visual result with different infrastructure. In case you do not do a dental implant treatment and choose crown, under the crown, where the tooth is touching the crown you may have cavity in future. It may also result to pain and your dentist may need to do a root canal therapy or may need to remove the tooth to clear the infection and remove any bacteria from the root.
One of the major effects of the crown is the change in gum's behavior to hot, cold, sour, sweet tastes. The gum, during the time may recede and this may cause infection, too.
If your choice is dental crown, visit your dentist frequently and make sure everything is all right with your crown, root, gums and the tooth under that.
If your choice is dental implant, choose an experienced dentist who meticulously takes care of each and any single attribute of your dental implant. Implant is a long-term treatment and must be done properly to give you a long-term good feeling.
