"If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, Dr. Girod has good news: dental implants that look and feel like your own teeth. You do not have to worry about wobbly dentures and messy pastes and glues. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures."
Speaker: Sabine Girod, MD, Standford University.
