What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled Cigna dentist in Anchorage, AK who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor 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 restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Anchorage area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
