Hi Dr. Moore. I have receding gums, but I see a hygienist regularly and have had a very expensive series of periodontal treatments. My 6 front upper teeth are elongated with obvious receding gums, and are held together by a brace on the back that maintains their awful position- would you recommend a bridge or implants? Could you also advise on me on the cost? My dentist is only interested in implants which worries me because of the pain, cost and whether I have enough bone to hold them. I am 50 and I am a smoker (I am trying to stop). I would be very grateful for your advice, thank you.
