Losing one tooth to untreated tooth decay or a severe dental trauma can certainly cause discomfort while also impairing the natural function of your mouth. Losing multiple teeth in one area can be even more bothersome, especially if the teeth were in the front of your mouth. This can significantly alter the appearance of your smile, limit your basic oral function, and even impact the clarity of your speech.
In a situation like this you should consider scheduling a consultation appointment at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas in Charlotte, North Carolina. After a thorough examination Dr. Hoffmann and his team of oral care specialists will provide you with the most appropriate recommendations for restoring the basic function and appearance of your mouth.
If you’re not comfortable with the extended timeframe and oral surgery associated with a dental implant restoration Dr. Hoffmann and his team might recommend fitting you for a removable partial denture.
This is a basic oral appliance that will mimic the size, shape, and location of the original teeth. They will be founded into a pink medium that closely resembles natural gum tissues. Depending on the size and location of the partial denture, it might also include some hardware components to help marry it to the neighboring teeth.
If you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area and you have lost multiple teeth in one area of your mouth, you should call 704-364-3770 to schedule an appointment at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas.
