Austin Dentist Shares Advantages of Dental Implants as a Tooth Replacement Option
Dr. Jordan Slagter of Austin Dental Spa discusses the many advantages that dental implants have for those in need of a tooth replacement option.
Austin, TX – At Austin Dental Spa, Dr. Jordan Slagter performs a variety of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental procedures. Among these is dental implant surgery, for which she provides both the implant placement and the restoration. The Austin dentist explains that while other tooth replacement options, like bridges or dentures, can be a great option for many people, dental implants are highly beneficial for several reasons. Since the implant replaces the entire root and tooth, Dr. Slagter says patients can benefit from the following:
- Aesthetics and function similar to a real tooth
- Permanent solution
- Single unit that does not affect adjacent teeth
- Improvement in talking and eating
- Easier maintenance
Depending on the patient’s specific needs and goals, Dr. Slagter may recommend a single tooth implant or an implant-supported denture. She performs both the placement of the implant and the restoration of the crown or denture. Dr. Slagter says this added convenience for the patient is ideal because she is planning all aspects of the implant process. As a result, she notes that the overall procedure is more efficient.
For those in need of a tooth replacement, Dr. Slagter encourages patients to consult with a qualified dental professional to learn about their options and to find the best solution for their individual goals.
