The loss of multiple teeth can sometimes be traumatic and distressing. Beyond any potential changes to your appearance and clarity of speech, the impaired function of your mouth could make it difficult to efficiently chew food for safe swallowing.
In a situation like this you should consider scheduling an appointment at the dental offices of Morrison Dental Group to help you understand your options for restoring the basic function of your teeth.
If a dental implant supported bridge is counter-indicated, Dr. Robert Morrison and his team might recommend fitting you for a removable partial denture. This type of removable dental appliance will be designed to closely replicate the missing teeth. It will also be set into a pink material that mimics the appearance of your gums.
While the dental appliance will closely match your gum structure for a snug fit, you might want to also use a little a little denture adhesive to lock the partial denture in place. This will give you extra hold while also helping to block out stray food particles from invading the base and irritating your gums.
If you live in the Williamsburg, Virginia, area and you have multiple missing teeth, you should call (757) 220-0330 to explore the treatment options available at Morrison Dental Group’s dental offices.
