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.
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.
With so many options to replace missing teeth today, you don’t need to live with the effects of tooth loss any longer. While we most commonly recommend dental implants because of their permanency, health benefits and functional and aesthetic results, there are other options. If you are not a candidate for implants we may recommend another option. Why struggle with chewing on one side of your mouth, giving up your favorite foods or hiding your smile?
