What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an awesome private dentist in Scottsdale, AZ who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Scottsdale area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
