Missing Multiple Teeth – Plymouth, MA

Filling in the Gaps to Restore Your Smile

After osseointegration, he attaches a restoration to the top of the implants to replace the visible portion of the lost teeth. The number of implants needed, as well as the type of restoration that is attached to them, depends on how many teeth a patient is missing.
