Permanent Solutions for Missing Teeth in Lady Lake, FL

Missing Teeth? Dental Implants Offer Lifelong Benefits

Losing teeth can alter everything from the way you enjoy your meals and your self-confidence to changes in your jaw density and the contour of your facial profile. While it may not seem like a big problem now, jaw bone loss has already started and will only continue if not addressed. Bone loss can cause a sunken-in facial structure and actually make you appear older than you are! To combat the effects of missing teeth and to improve your appearance we often recommend dental implants. As a comprehensive implant provider, Dr. Medina provides start-to-finish implant solutions for our patients. From traditional tooth replacement with dental implants to bone grafting and zygoma dental implants for our patients with severe bone loss, we’re able to provide in-house implant therapy for even the most complex cases involving missing teeth.

Permanent Tooth Replacement

With dental implants, our Lady Lake patients are able to enjoy the benefits of restorations that mimic natural teeth in both appearance and function. Using guided placement technology backed by over a decade of experience, Dr. Medina is able to help our patients with missing teeth who might not otherwise be a candidate for traditional implant treatments. As such, it’s easier to bypass and correct the side-effects that often accompany tooth loss.

Dental implants offer a number of advantages:

  • Preserve Tooth Spacing:
    With a dental implant, teeth adjacent to the missing one won’t tip inward or shift out of place.
  • No Loose Prosthetics:
    Implants permanently and securely support your fixed or removable restoration for added comfort and confidence.
  • Support for Non-Traditional Implant Patients:
    From bone grafting to Zygoma dental implants, Dr. Medina has the skills available to provide care to nearly anyone with missing teeth.
  • Improved Biting and Chewing:
    An implant can support even more weight than the healthiest of teeth!
  • A Smart Investment in Your Smile:
    Today’s dental implants can outlast and outperform nearly any other modern treatment for missing teeth. Choosing to invest in your smile with dental implants is something you can take with you for life.
