What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a dedicated Guardian dentist in East Franklin, NJ 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 near you. After that, your new dentist can examine 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 crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the East Franklin area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
