What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. The advanced stage of gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent in-network dentist in Fortuna, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, 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 prescribed. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Fortuna‘s neighborhoods and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
