“All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” maybe a catchy Christmas song but it can also be a source of shame and embarrassment to the millions of Americans who are missing one or more teeth. Those who are missing teeth report lower rates of self-esteem, higher levels of depression, challenges advancing their career, and high levels of social embarrassment. Even worse, a missing tooth can affect your bite, your speech, and your ability to eat certain foods. Many over compensate for their missing teeth and can prematurely damage the remaining teeth and/or experience headaches and jaw pain.
Don’t let the embarrassment of missing teeth be a source of frustration or shame any longer. Replace missing teeth or get a fixed solution to your partial or complete dentures today with the help of dental implants. Our periodontist can place a dental implant – an artificial tooth or root usually made from titanium – surgically in your upper or lower jaw. Dental Care of Mid Florida uses natural looking dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore a full, vibrant smile. We use the best quality, strong, durable implants that will last for years and only need occasional re-tightening or maintenance.
