Do teeth play a role in general health?
Teeth in later life are essential for nutrition. Denture patients often become disabled from poor nutrition. Teeth firmly attached to dental implants give patients a better quality of life even in the late stages of life. Many patients have shared stories of a loved one who would have had a much better quality of life if they had only had better teeth to chew with to contribute to better health.
Due to all these issues, many patients with significant mouth disease may qualify for medically needed procedures that Dr. Fernandez can perform to move them towards a disease-free and functional oral health.
