What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As kids, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an experienced Aetna dentist in Schofield Barracks, HI who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your alveolar bone and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Schofield Barracks area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
