What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a new in-network dentist in Fordland, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most fulls 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 mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Fordland 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 lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
