Frequently Asked Question
What are my choices for teeth replacement once I have lost my teeth?
The choices range from a traditional denture which has minimal stability, to an implant secured denture which improves stability and preserves bone, and finally to a hybrid appliance screwed into the completely fixed implants that provides the most natural chewing function and stability.
