Chapman & Puderbaugh
This is the PERFECT dental office for your whole family! After relocating to this area, our family needed a new dental home. Dr Chapman & Puderbaugh were referred to me by a co-worker and I will be forever thankful! They take wonderful care of my whole families dental needs. My husband had some bad dental experiences when he was younger and those memories made him a big coward when it came to having dental work done. These doctors and their staff are so kind, gentle, and comforting at every dental visit. They explain everything in terms that we can understand. They are so knowledgable and helpful with our insurance and treatment questions. We have had better experiences in this office than any other office we have ever gone to. They make every visit a great one & we actually look forward to going to the dentist now!

Changed my view of dentists! I've never liked going to the dentist and generally have tried to avoid going. My sister convinced me to try here and this office goes way above what any other office I have been to has. They are friendly, helpful, and genuinely seem to care about me and my teeth. I have been going there for 3 years now and just had another great visit today. The office is clean and nice and they seem very up to date on technology. I see Dr. Puderbaugh and I've had nothing but positive experiences. And, best of all, they always run on time!

Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
