What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems eating. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a new Aetna dentist in Des Moines, IA who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, providing lifelike results. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Des Moines area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
