What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an experienced Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Lake Hiawatha, NJ who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Lake Hiawatha area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
