What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled Medicaid dentist in Merrionette Park, IL who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist near you. 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 several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Merrionette Park area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. 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 years have gone by since that happened!
