According to one estimate, 23 million people in the U.S. have lost of all of their teeth, while millions more have lost all of their teeth throughout one of their dental arches. Many of them choose to get traditional dentures. But is there a better solution? For most patients, yes. We invite you to contact Happy Smiles to learn about implant dentures in Westchase. This tooth replacement solution is strong, sturdy, natural-looking, and long-lasting.
