As with all methods of tooth replacement, dental implants can help your smile look more attractive by securing a custom-made crown in the space left by tooth loss. Like bridges and partial dentures, dental implants will keep adjacent teeth from shifting into the hole left by a missing tooth, thereby preserving current bite tension and strength. However, dental implants alone are secured into the jawbone, allowing them to provide several unique and important benefits.
Advantages unique to implant dentistry include:
- Complete restoration of biting and chewing abilities
- Fully natural-looking results
- Prevention of jaw shrinkage and collapse
- No risk of slipping or falling out
- Limited to no impact on adjacent teeth
These are, of course, not the only benefits offered by implant dentistry, but they are some of the most important. During your initial consultation with Iowa implant dentist Dr. Blaine McLaughlin additional benefits offered by dental implants can be explored in detail.
Dr. McLaughlin takes care to personalize every treatment plan, enabling him to meet the specific needs of individual patients. If dental implants are not the best solution for your smile, he will be happy to discuss alternatives during your tooth replacement consultation.
