What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a skilled Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Maywood, NJ who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Maywood area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
