What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced Delta Dental dentist in Kailua, HI 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 location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your alveolar bone and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Kailua area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
