What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our baby teeth over time. 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 difficulties eating. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent in-network dentist in Odessa, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to an awesome dentist in your area. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Odessa area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.
