What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As children, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced Cigna dentist in Davenport, IA who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Davenport 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 lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
