What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a skilled Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Overland Park, KS who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a friendly dentist near you. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For mild 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 address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Overland Park area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you 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!
