What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent Delta Dental dentist in Leonia, NJ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, providing lifelike results. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Leonia area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
