What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent Cigna dentist in Peoria, IL who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Peoria area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
