What To Do About Missing 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 is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Eagle Rock, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your area. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Eagle Rock‘s proximity and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
