What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As children, we lose our baby teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a professional and friendly Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Waterloo, IA who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Waterloo area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
