Naperville, IL (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
Dr. Kaz Zymantas specializes in placing dental implants for his patients in Naperville, IL as a lasting solution to the problem of missing teeth. An estimated three out of four Americans over the age of forty currently lives with one or more lost teeth. For those who have lost all of the top or bottom teeth, removable dentures are often the most common solution. But the truth is that temporary solutions to missing teeth often result in long term damage to the gums and bone that supports the teeth.
Those who have lived with a removable dental appliance know the challenges that come with that temporary solution, including:
- Slipping while eating or talking
- Clicking when not fully secure
- Reliance on messy glues and pastes to hold them in place
- Limited diet of soft and easy-to-chew foods
- Potential ongoing damage to gum tissue
- Weakening of bone structure in the absence of normal stimulation
While the denture may provide the wearer with replacement of the teeth that are missing, the truth is that dentures often do harm over the long run. The body reabsorbs the jawbone if it is not being used to anchor the roots of the teeth, from which it normally receives healthy stimulation. The result is a sunken appearance to the face that ages the look of the patient. The pressure of the denture on the gums can cause further damage to the gum tissue.
With the dental implants now available in Naperville, IL, ill-fitting dentures can be a thing of the past. Using titanium posts that naturally bond with the bone over time, the implants can provide a permanent solution with regular dental care and a healthy oral hygiene regimen. The teeth that Dr. Zymantas provides are attached to the implants and look and feel much like natural teeth. Even better, the implants provide stimulation to the bone much like real roots do.
