Rick has been missing his front four teeth for 30 years, a fixed bridge from right canine to left canine has replaced these teeth for 20 years. The left canine has failed and cannot be saved, thus the bridge fails also. All solutions involve removing the left canine.

Solutions to replace missing teeth

1) removable partial denture

2) fixed bridge

3) Implants with crowns.

Rick chose Implants. Note: implants need a certain amount of bone thickness to hold them in. In Rick’s case his bone had thinned over thirty years of not having teeth, this bone will need to be built up to hold in the implants. (614) 775-9300 or (740)427-2929

Tom has worn dentures for 27 years, and he has had three sets made over that time. This last set has really gotten loose, the upper drops down frequently when eating or laughing, the lower denture floats around and does not chew well.
