Some problems caused by missing teeth, such as a negative impact on your appearance and ability to eat and speak, are obvious. What is not so obvious is the loss of bone mass in your jaw that results from a lost tooth. To combat this problem, our dentists may suggest replacing not just the crown, but the entire tooth. Dr. Dina L. Nuhfer, Dr. Rachel B. Fleisig and Dr. Peter Dennis place and restore dental implants in North East and Erie, Pennsylvania. Call North East Dental Arts at 814-725-4700 to see if you are a candidate for this treatment.
