Richard had known for a long time that periodontal disease, commonly referred to as gum disease, was loosening his teeth. He knew that the looseness would only continue to get worse, and that teeth were beginning to fall out. He did not want to go through the slow process of teeth coming out one by one, and putting up with partial dentures that hang off the remaining teeth. Richard chose the teeth in a day procedure, in which he got a solid bridge right away, which would eventually be converted to solid teeth on implants. He is very impressed with the results and very happy that he made the decision.
