Root Canal or Implant

Updated: Mar 3, 2022

Some patients ask whether they should save their tooth with a root canal treatment and crown or get an implant.

Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements. Implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions for patients missing one, multiple or all teeth. The dental implants themselves are titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Why choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth – you may forget you ever lost a tooth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat in comfort and smile with confidence and speak clearly. Their teeth appear natural and the facial contours are preserved.

Root canal therapy is sometimes the only way to save a tooth; the only alternative is pulling the tooth (extraction). When the nerve of a tooth becomes abscessed or infected.A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy is very weak and must have a crown to restore it to strength and protect it against fracture
