What To Do About Missing Teeth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly private dentist in Chicago, IL who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Chicago‘s neighborhoods and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
