What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need an excellent private dentist in Normandy, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a friendly dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Normandy area and have lost your natural teeth, 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 edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
