You May Still Qualify
Your eligibility for dental implants should be determined by a board-certified oral surgeon. Do not hesitate to pursue other opinions from different surgeons. We find that many of our patients who qualify for New Teeth Now have been told by other surgeons that they are ineligible for implants or require bone grafting procedure due to bone loss in the jaw. If you’ve been turned away by an oral surgeon in the past, you may still qualify for New Teeth Now.
