What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need a new United Healthcare dentist in Wichita, KS who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, providing lifelike results. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be secured with dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jaw and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Wichita area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dental surgeons in Nashville, TN with us this week.
