because he was having trouble keeping his lower partial (bridge) in place. It always moved around when he ate and he wanted a more permanent option. He went from having 3 teeth and metal partial to having 6 implants and 12 crowns within a period of 5 months. All his work was done here and he never had to leave the office saving time and money.The gold posts you see sticking out of his gums are called abutments, they fit directly into the implant which is hidden below the gums. Once the abutment is fitted into the implant we are able to literally re-build new teeth and cement them on top of the abutments. This option is by far the most natural way to replace missing teeth without the hassle of having a removable denture.
