Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
Dr. Raymond A. Kenzik announces he will be accepting new patients this season with or without a referral, for dental implants. Dr. Kenzik’s office is located in Ormond Beach, FL and he recommends dental implants for those with missing teeth who are looking for a beautiful and natural looking smile in the New Year.
The thickness and height of the jawbone is drastically affected when a tooth is lost due to an extraction or an accident. A tooth’s roots stimulate bone health, and without that process the body begins to resorb the jawbone. Even when only one tooth is missing, the other teeth shift as their foundation changes, and they often become loose. Individuals who have lost several or all of their teeth are at risk for more severe health problems as the jaw bone disintegrates.
Dentures and bridges are poor solutions for missing teeth. Both types of tooth replacement rest on top of the gums, so bone loss continues uninterrupted. A dentist must file down surrounding teeth to attach a fixed bridge, which weakens them and makes them more likely to decay. Denture wearers use a sticky paste to secure a plate against the gums, so they may be dislodged by crunchy or chewy foods. The changes in the gum line due to the shrinking bone change the fit of dentures over time. They begin to slip and click, which can be both painful and embarrassing.
At his practice in Ormond Beach, FL, Dr. Kenzik offers dental implants as a permanent tooth replacement solution. An implant consists of three parts. The titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it fuses with the jawbone during the healing process. An abutment fits on top of the post and securely anchors the tooth’s crown to its titanium implant post. Bone stimulation helps prevent further shrinkage and patients enjoy unlimited food choices with the stable tooth replacement.
