What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly in-network dentist in Lake Hiawatha, NJ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Lake Hiawatha area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
