People lose teeth for many reasons, including:
Whatever the reason you might be missing teeth, the team at My Rivertown Dentist will never judge you or make you feel embarrassed about that loss. Missing teeth is tough enough! We are here to help you get through the loss and find the best solution for your lifestyle and your budget.
Dr. Lee usually recommends dental implants to all of her patients because they are the most natural feeling and functioning option available. That includes implant-retained dentures and partials. These prosthetics are so special because the entire denture or partial is attached to implant posts instead of sitting on your gums. That means no more gooey adhesives, no more slipping, no more pinching, and highly minimized bone loss. If you are not a candidate for implant-retained dentures, don’t worry, we can fit you with traditional dentures as well.
