What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our deciduous 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 issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a dedicated in-network dentist in Hutchinson, MN who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Hutchinson area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
