What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your youthful features. You need an excellent Delta Dental dentist in Rockford, IL who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
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 understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Rockford area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
