What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties eating. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled Cigna dentist in Brookdale, NJ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, 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 missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be secured with dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Brookdale‘s neighborhoods and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you 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!
