What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need an experienced in-network dentist in Park City, IL 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 skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Park City area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
