Andrew Forrest

Periodontist*

ClearChoice Dental Implants Ft Lauderdale is here to guide you through the process, regardless of where you are in your journey. Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for missing or failing teeth because they provide a permanent base for fixed replacement teeth. Dental implants fit, feel, and function more like your natural teeth than dentures or bridges.

When left untreated, gum disease can increase your risk of conditions like stroke, heart disease, and cancer; therefore, it is important not to delay gum disease treatment. ClearChoice Dental Implants Ft Lauderdale looks forward to assisting you in finding a comfortable and permanent solution to your dental issues and putting you on a path toward renewed oral and overall health.
