What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced United Healthcare dentist in Davenport, IA who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist near you. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild 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 set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Davenport area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
