Patient Review

“After living with an ill-fitting denture for several years (I even got a 2nd opinion about the fit and was assured that it was as good as it can get given my bone structure), I decided to give it one last try. I researched online and decided to try Dr. Rutledge. His staff is amazing. HE is amazing. They actually listened to my long dental history and really listened when I described what I was looking for. I told them I would appreciate them being totally honest with me and that this was my last attempt at a properly fitting upper denture that looked as good as it functioned. Dr. Rutledge didn’t even hesitate. He assured me it was definitely something we could do. And he was correct. I am thrilled with the results and relieved that FINALLY I have found a dentist I can have for the rest of my life. (Don’t even think about retiring Dr. Rutledge!!)” – Candy

Does your jaw lock or stray to one side when you open your mouth?
