Woman: Last year I had implants done on my lower teeth. Of course, I've always heard about having lower teeth, you know, false teeth, so I thought, "Oh, I can't stand that." He put in implants for me. Dr. Goodman: The implant has just completely revolutionized what we do. It's allowed us to place a titanium fixture inside where that tooth used to be and build a tooth on top of it that, when you look in there, you'd never see it. You can chew with it, you can floss it. You brush it and treat it just like any other tooth that you have. It can last your lifetime. In denture cases a lot of times we use the implants to anchor a restoration. We can anchor a denture, we can anchor a bridge, we can anchor a single tooth. They really can be used in several different ways, depending on the circumstances. Man: After I had this all done, I've told Dr. Goodman many times, "My, gosh. Why did I not do this long ago?" It's unbelievable, it really is.
