The difference between the two is that the dental implant is an artificial metal root,and the porcelain tooth is fixed with its own root.

A person will only change his teeth once in his life.After the permanent teeth erupt,whether it is due to an accident or a disease extraction,the teeth will not regenerate.However,tooth loss will bring us a lot of inconvenience and health risks.At this time,tooth restoration is essential.How to choose? What is the difference?

1,fixed way

Porcelain teeth: It is fixed with its own roots,and a part of the adjacent teeth needs to be ground off and fixed by the support of the adjacent teeth.

  • Dental implants:The pressure of tooth chewing is transmitted to the alveolar bone through the root of the tooth,so the dental implant can withstand more powerful force,and the chewing efficiency and comfort are much higher than that of porcelain teeth.
