What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a new Lincoln Financial Group dentist in Neptune City, NJ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Neptune City area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
