What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a dedicated Lincoln Financial Group dentist in Victory Gardens, NJ who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Victory Gardens area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
