Board Certified Prosthodontist and Board-Certified implant Dentist, Dr. David McFadden, discusses the important value of being able to see before and after dental photography cases with THE LIPS RETRACTED, so you can see beyond JUST the smile. When it comes to extensive dental treatments involving dental implants, particularly full mouth reconstruction cases, the make-or-break success of these cases relies on a solid foundation for good function. You’ll want to see how the prostheses meets the gums. Most offices’ photo galleries merely show a before and after smile. That’s the easy part! It’s imperative that the junction the between prosthesis and the soft tissues is most like natural teeth, to avoid speech and eating complications.
