What To Do About Missing Teeth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. 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 oral health complications. You could have problems eating. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need an experienced in-network dentist in Briarwood, AR who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Briarwood area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
