People that suffer from tooth loss are forced to deal with several inconveniences and self-conscious feelings. It can be hard to enjoy life when it is difficult to carry on daily activities such as speaking or even chewing food. For those with severe dental complications, a smile with missing teeth is the last thing someone wants to show off.
To resolve these issues, Dr. Goodman has opportunities including full, partial, and immediate and implant supported dentures. These effective long-lasting options are customized for Kansas City patients who are missing most or all of their teeth. They are custom-fit and personalized by shade, size, and style to give the smile you've always dreamed of.
Dentures are designed for the upper as well as lower sections of the mouth. All of the teeth are needed to be removed for full upper or lower dentures. For those who have specific areas of teeth missing, a partial removable device will sufficiently replace the area or missing tooth. Either of these options can be immediate and available in as little as two weeks if there is the need for urgency.
Implant Supported Dentures
