What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an awesome in-network dentist in Exeter, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, 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 set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Exeter‘s neighborhoods and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
