Meet the Doctor, Dentist Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, Scottsdale, Arizona

 

Ever wonder how your dentist got started, and why? Dr. Kevin B. Cebrynski explains how he got into dentistry and why he likes his job in this report.

 

When Dr. Cebrynski was signing up for college, he had to choose a major. He chose dentistry, because it had “good pay and good hours.” And it was better than digging ditches (something he had done in high school). He signed up for the pre-dentistry program, and it kicked off his career. Along the way, he got advanced training and has become a prosthodontist.

Now, his work involves the repair and reconstruction of his patients’ mouths. He replaces missing teeth, sometimes with a prosthetic device that replaces all of a patient’s teeth, or perhaps a crown, maybe an implant. Implants are a big part of his work. Whether it’s a small problem or a complete replacement, Dr. Cebrynski gets the job done.

The most rewarding part of Dr. Cebrynski’s work comes when he is finished with a case. “Someone who has been a dental cripple for years can now function properly and smile, and all they do is smile, because they haven’t done that for twenty years.” Sometimes, they walk out the door crying tears of joy. Days like those are great for the patients and great days for Dr. Cebrynski. He tells of one patient who got a lot of repair to the front of her mouth, and later said, “All I do now is smile.”

It is also rewarding to give a patient the ability to eat normally when eating normally has not been possible for years. Instead of eating mush, “Now they can go out and have a salad or a steak.”

Dr. Cebrynski’s philosophy of practice is to focus first of all on restoring a patient’s mouth to proper functioning. Every repair is probably a cosmetic improvement. But function comes first: “Giving patients the ability to function properly is really what prosthodontics is.”

"Catch Up" Dentistry and Second Opinions, Dentist Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, Scottsdale, Arizona

 

People who go to see dentists never start with prosthodontists, but they may end up there. In this report Dr. Kevin B. Cebrynski discusses the patients who come to him and what his practice entails, including second opinions.

 

Dr. Cebrynski says that, most of the time, the patients who come to see him have gone past the stage when simple rehabilitative measures are possible for them. Extensive work, up to dental prostheses, may be required. Many of the major repairs required could have been avoided had the patients come to see him years earlier.

Dr. Cebrynski notes that “It’s far too often that we see second opinions.” The patient may have work that was just completed but about which the patient is dissatisfied. Sometimes, patients have been looking for answers and not getting the help they are looking for, so they seek out a specialist. Those are the times when, Dr. Cebrynski says, he is able to guide them down a path that will hold them in good stead during the years ahead. Sometimes, a patient has work that has recently been completed, but incorrectly, so that the work must be redone.

Prevention is something that patients can do for themselves to make their dental problems less serious in later years. Patients should have routine visits to see the dental hygienist at a dentist’s office. The checkups can look for periodontal disease and oral cancer, among other things. Checkups two to four times yearly can help prevent long-term issues. Sometimes, patients will have a long course of medical treatment or cancer treatment that will keep them away from the dentist’s office for a long period. These patients often return with a lot of problems that require treatment.

If patients will see their dentists, follow good dental habits, wear occlusal devices when necessary, and deal with periodontal disease properly, many problems in later life can be avoided.

Profiles of Prosthodontic Patients, Dentist Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, Scottsdale, Arizona

Dentists see patients of all ages, but in a dental specialty like prosthodontics, a dentist might see some kinds of patients more than others. In this report. Dr. Kevin B. Cebrynski talks about the kinds of patients most like to visit a prosthodontist.

Dr. Cebryinski says that the majority of his patients are age forty and older. People who reach the age of forty are reaching the time in their lives when they will need prosthodontics—a crown, a bridge, or an implant. The group of patients age fifty and older are likely to be taking medications that will help extend their lifespans. However, a side effect of some of these medications is to dry up saliva in the mouth, and these drier mouths are targets for tooth decay. Cardiac medications are probably the number one cause for the drying up. Pain medications can also have a drying effect.

Decay is the most frequent cause of problems that bring patients to Dr. Cebrynski. The next culprit is lost teeth. Many patients have lost a tooth or more over the years. Some patients will be in a situation such that some remaining teeth will have to be removed and an advanced dental solution will be required. Another significant group is people who have worn their teeth down over the years. In addition to normal wear and tear, people in the Phoenix area have a dusty environment that contributes to the wear. Many of these people will need crowns on their teeth.

The short characterization of Dr. Cebrynski’s practice, he says, is to reconstruct the mouths of his patients to try to get them back to what nature gave them years ago.

Senior Smiles, Dentist Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, Scottsdale, Arizona

 

Senior Smiles is an educational effort of the American Dental Association. Dr. Kevin B. Cebrynski discusses the Senior Smiles program in this report.

 

Senior Smiles, Dr. Cebrynski explains, is an advertising campaign developed several years ago to focus on the older population. This is the part of the population that needs the majority of prosthodontic care. Older people are most likely to have worn down their teeth over the years, or to have missing or broken teeth. Sometimes, they will have incomplete dentures.

Dr. Cebrynski points out that properly functioning teeth are important to everyone in order for them to chew their food properly. This helps someone get proper nutrition, have good digestion, and create body energy. Patients who are not able to chew their food properly will experience deterioration in their general health.

Dr. Cebrynski emphasizes that good dental health is connected to a person’s overall health. And there are issues beyond just the ability to chew properly. For example, a broken tooth can be the site of a dental infection. A person may have such an infection and be unaware of it. Infections like this can create issues with heart valves. Fixing the tooth fixes the infection.

Prosthodontics, Dentist Dr. Kevin Cebrynski, Scottsdale, Arizona

 

Prosthodontics is a specialty within the field of dentistry with which many people are not familiar. Dr. Kevin B. Cebrynski is a dentist who practices in this somewhat unusual field. Dr. Cebrynski explains his specialty field in this report.

 

Prosthodontics deals with the replacement and restoration of teeth. Dr. Cebrynski points out that the field has a broad scope, from something as simple as a filling to “a full reconstruction of the oral environment.” The reconstruction could involve implants, removable appliances, or full crown bridges. The goal is to recreate a patient’s original dental function.

The teeth may be worn down by years of bruxism (grinding the teeth). In these situations, the prosthodontist is trying to recreate the bite the patient originally had before the years of wearing down. Dr. Cebrynski says that the work can be very difficult, but there is great reward in getting a good outcome for a patient and seeing the happy smile again.

Patients usually find out that it is time to see a prosthodontist “when it has really gone too far.” At that point, a major amount of work will be required. A lot of patients come to see a prosthodontist after a referral from a general dentist who realizes that the patient’s situation is beyond what the general dentist can do. Unfortunately, Dr. Cebrynski says, most of his cases are major ones.

By way of illustrating his daily practice, Dr. Cebrynski explains that a frequent problem will be the replacement of missing teeth with dental implants that take the place of the missing teeth. Also, crown or bridge work will often be required to work with the implants to give them a stable bite and restore their function. Implants perform a number of functions, and Dr. Cebrynski says he uses them as an everyday routine.
