What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a dedicated private dentist in Centralia, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jaw and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Centralia area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
