What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an experienced Lincoln Financial Group dentist in Jamesburg, NJ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to an experienced dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Jamesburg area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
