Brooke's treatment was both out of necessity and a desire that nothing come in and out of her mouth; as well as a desire to be healthier. Brooke told us: “My teeth were rotting out of my head. I had periodontal problems (bone loss) and I had trouble eating. To expedite my treatment, Dr. Boccuzzi coordinated appointments with Dr. Frederic J. Norkin - a periodontist. Although the process felt time-consuming with appointments at both offices, I was was never uncomfortable. I now have feelings of beauty and grandness. I feel fantastic. My new smile and bite changed my life ... I can eat. I can smile. I feel beautiful."
