Poor oral hygiene habits can cause multiple cavities to develop on neighboring teeth. If you put off having an examination and treatment at Dr. Kurt Seidler’s office, the tooth decay will continue to spread. In time, this could lead to the loss of multiple teeth.
To treat a mouth in this condition Dr. Seidler might recommend extracting the remnants of the teeth. This will help to ease the pain and prevent further infection from developing in your gums.
When you’re ready, Dr. Seidler can present you with options to restore your smile.
A pair of dental implants inserted in your bone structure can provide sufficient structure to anchor a dental bridge. However, this takes time and might call for more than one oral surgery.
If you are uncomfortable with the dental implant process, Dr. Seidler might suggest fitting you for a custom partial denture. This is a removable dental appliance that acts like an abbreviated form of a complete denture. It will be designed in a professional dental lab to fully replicate the presence, function, and appearance of your original teeth.
It will be designed to fit tightly with the surrounding structure or your teeth and gums. A little denture adhesive will also help lock the denture in place while also helping to prevent food particles from infiltrating the space between the denture and your gums.
If you live in the Carrollton, Texas, area and you have lost multiple teeth to untreated cavities, you should call 972-492-0411 to schedule an appointment at Kurt A. Seidler DDS.
