What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced in-network dentist in Sand Lake, AK who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate 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 several gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Sand Lake area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you 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!
