At Greg Campbell DDS, we know that losing a tooth, or multiple teeth, can lead to difficulty eating, pain, risk of infection, and perhaps most importantly, can affect your smile. The embarrassment from loose dentures or gaps created by the missing teeth, can greatly impact your lifestyle whether you are dining at a fine restaurant, or simply visiting with friends. The fear of slipping dentures, or making a clicking noise when you eat, can prevent you from wanting to live your life to the fullest.
