What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a skilled Aetna dentist in Wahiawa, HI who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with 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 Wahiawa area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.
