What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Maywood, IL who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Maywood area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
