What To Do About Missing Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need an awesome in-network dentist in Rochester, NY who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to an awesome dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Rochester area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
