What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties eating. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a permanent private dentist in Portage Valley, AK who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your missing teeth. For mild 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 rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Portage Valley area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
