Dental implants and crowns

The difference between dental implants and crowns?

What’s the difference between dental implants and crowns?


Essentially, implants are prosthetic roots that function the same way as a natural tooth root does.
An implant is placed directly onto your bone, fusing with it so it lasts an entire lifetime. There, it serves as a platform for a whole new replacement tooth, a role fulfilled by the dental crown.
They’re separate processes but they’re very closely related, as they’re both one equal half of a successful treatment to replace a missing tooth.
A crown on its own can’t replace a missing tooth without the implant, but it can alter an existing damaged one.
