What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our baby teeth over time. 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 problems. You could have problems eating. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a skilled private dentist in Burlington, VT who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to an awesome dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can examine 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, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jaw and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Burlington area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
