What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled DentaQuest dentist in Ocean Grove, NJ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist near you. Then, your new dentist can examine 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 several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Ocean Grove area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
