First of all, when you don't feel comfortable with your smile, you're less confident and may be dealing with some self-esteem issues. Your smile is your first impression that you make on others. If you're missing teeth, you're probably not flashing your pearly whites as often as you should.
With the start of a new year, you owe it to yourself to live your best life. You deserve to feel confident with your smile, laugh more and eat your favorite foods without having to take into account missing teeth. Dental implants are your solution and Dr. Kenzik, a Periodontist in Ormond Beach, can help.
What are dental implants?
If you have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other cause, dental implants are the ideal solution. Different than dentures or other tooth replacement options, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone beneath your gums. This creates a permanent base for your replacement teeth and allows them to stand securely on their own without affecting nearby teeth.
The replacement teeth that go on top of your dental implants mimic the appearance of natural teeth. In fact, we even match the color of replacement teeth to your existing smile so that they blend in seamlessly. Because dental implants both look and function just like natural teeth, they allow you to chew, eat, speak, and smile with confidence. With this permanent tooth replacement solution, there's no need to worry about shifting or unnatural looking teeth that can occur with other solutions.
Dental implants can also help you to improve your oral health, contributing to positive oral hygiene, helping to fight bone loss, and allowing you to maintain your remaining teeth.
Don't let missing teeth prevent you from living your life to its fullest. Dr. Kenzik is an experienced and well-trained Periodontist that specializes in dental implants. We use the greatest dental treatment technology available and make your comfort our priority.

After all, you deserve to smile confidently, laugh more, and enjoy life in the new year.
