Hello Andrey! If we delve into the anatomy, then we know that the tooth has a periodontal ligament that performs many functions: barrier (forms local immunity), sensory (the ability to form a response to human actions and inflammatory processes), trophic, shock-absorbing, reflex - therefore when we chew, we feel it perfectly and can control the degree of pressing. The implant is installed tightly into the bone and has no mobility, sensitivity decreases due to the lack of innervation.
It is also necessary to understand what kind of tooth we are talking about, if it is a depulped, decayed tooth, then it is inappropriate to save it and it is better to install an implant. It is necessary to evaluate in person, after the examination and X-ray diagnostics, weigh the pros and cons, evaluate the prognosis of treatment. World statistics show only 30% of favorable treatment outcomes for previously depulpated teeth.

It is worth considering what kind of situation we are talking about. If a tooth needs to be covered with a crown so that it does not collapse, or an implant needs to be installed to preserve the integrity of the dentition, then these procedures are simply necessary. If we are talking about a situation where your tooth can be saved, then it is better to try to save it. Your tooth is a living tissue, natural for the body. A natural tooth has a number of properties that artificial teeth do not, so they require very careful care and regular monitoring by a doctor. Simply put, your own, natural is always better than any artificial elements, although the quality of dental materials is today at the highest level and, if necessary, any work in our clinic will be done to the patient perfectly well.
It is unclear which case we are talking about, but in any case, a living tooth receives nutrients from the body and will last longer than a "dead" tooth with a crown. It does not seem realistic to me such a choice - to leave a living tooth or to make an implant - what equipment for implantation if it is possible to save the tooth?
