A missing tooth is troublesome in many ways. Eating, chewing, talking, and interacting with other people can be challenging due to your lost tooth. The good news is that your Citrus Heights dentist offers several solutions for replacing missing teeth.
A dental bridge can replace one or multiple adjacent missing teeth. Bridges use crowns that anchor to healthy teeth with artificial teeth attached in between. Your bridge is made of porcelain restorations that are customized to match your smile.
Tooth implants offer an excellent solution for restoring single and multiple missing teeth. Dental implants replace both your tooth and its missing root, which is essentially giving you a brand new tooth. Your implant tooth looks and feels like a natural tooth and provides all the function you had before your tooth loss.
Dr. Erickson offers comprehensive implant dentistry at Citrus Grove Dentistry, which means he can complete both the surgical and restorative aspects of your treatment, and you won't be referred anywhere else. He utilizes Bicon implants, which are smaller and require less bone for support. This means that patients who have suffered bone loss can easily support these implants without the need for a bone grafting procedure.
