What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. 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 problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Halawa, HI who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Halawa‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
