What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need an excellent in-network dentist in Chaffee, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Chaffee area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
