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 means poor oral health. The advanced stage of gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need an excellent United Healthcare dentist in Highlands, NJ who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Highlands area and have lost your natural teeth, 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!
