Dental Implant Restoration
Most people don’t realize how important it is to have a full smile. In addition to creating an unsightly appearance, missing teeth can result in tooth and jaw misalignment, dietary limitations, and additional tooth loss. Also, research indicates that up to 20 percent of teeth adjacent to missing teeth will fall out over the next several years if lost teeth are not replaced.
Because Dr. Erpenbach understands the value of a healthy, complete, and fully functional smile, he may suggest bridgework, dentures, partials, or dental implants. Implant restorations enable patients to once again enjoy active living and a high quality of life. Constructed from biocompatible titanium, a dental implant is a small, metal post surgically inserted into your gum line. One post and crown are placed in each empty socket to act as teeth roots and crowns.
