What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum 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 with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a permanent Delta Dental dentist in Ellisburg, NJ 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 a dentist in your area. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Ellisburg area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.
