Video: Facial Atrophy & Rejuvenation
Robert, with so much charisma was most embarrassed about the appearance of his teeth. This affected his work and business. Robert never knew how much the new smile with fixed teeth would make such a difference in his life. The confidence and comfort, not to mention the quality of life! His case was completed 15 years ago.
Loss of teeth means loss of bone and lower facial scaffolding the lip and facial musculature and skin support. The face collapses, the chin and nose come close together. Increased facial folding and tipping of nose downwards. We get an accelerated aging effect: facial atrophy.

Thank you for taking the time to explore this patient's story. I hope this gives you an idea of what I can do for you if you are having difficulty and need help, because there is always hope.
