What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As kids, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a new in-network dentist in Broseley, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your area. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Broseley‘s proximity and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
