- Cosmetic Denture + Fixed Bridge Replaces Old Denture and Partial
Denture and partial replacements are needed from time to time. Waiting too long however can cause jaw bone mass (quality and quantity) to melt away which can prevent, for some patients, the inability to replace teeth easily. See how lower jawbone, almost totally lost due to a poor fitting partial, was rebuilt to create 12 new teeth from 3 remaining natural teeth. Designer denture products and porcelain bridge cosmetics recreate a powerful bite and good looks the patient had not had in several years.
