When our patients have lost numerous teeth, we know they are dealing with a stressful and painful situation. Replacing missing teeth shouldn’t add to their stress. We are happy to offer a wide range of dental restoration options to put the smile back on their faces. Following advanced tooth loss, we typically recommend a partial or full denture. By combining these custom restorations with dental implants, we can recreate the flawless natural appearance and function of patients’ smiles.
