Dental implants are revolutionizing the way our patients overcome the challenges of missing teeth. Their biocompatible design and long-term success make dental implants the go-to solution for tooth replacement. With a success rate of 98%, dental implants are the most predictable option to replace missing teeth. Dr. Carlos Medina has been placing implants in Lady Lake for over a decade, receiving his implant certification in 2007. We complete every dental implant case in-house, including the surgical placement and restorative phases; theres no need for you to be referred elsewhere for your treatment!
Using 3D CT scanning, we can replicate a digital model of your oral anatomy and create a special guide that allows for dental implants to be placed in a way that minimizes the need for other supportive therapies (such as bone grafting or sinus lifts.) Your procedure will be one thats streamlined, precise, and predictable. Plus, theres no need to send you to an outside surgeon for the initial placement of your dental implants. Everything is completed here in our Lady Lake practice.
Most dental implants are made of titanium, which is both biocompatible and hypoallergenic. When placed into the jaw, our bodies naturally develop new bone around the artificial root, fusing it permanently into place (a process we call osseointegration).
