What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As children, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties eating. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an amazing DentaQuest dentist in Waikele, HI who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be supported with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Waikele area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
