What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties eating. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a new Medicaid dentist in Cedar Rapids, IA who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Cedar Rapids area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
