What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need an excellent Guardian dentist in Notre Dame, IN who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate 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 several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Notre Dame area and need a solution for tooth loss, 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 complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
