Failing to maintain consistent good oral hygiene practices can promote cavities on multiple teeth. If you further opt not to have the tooth decay professionally treated, it could lead to multiple cases of tooth loss.
Of course, this can significantly impair your ability to bite and chew food. If the teeth were located in the front of your mouth, it could alter the appearance of your smile, as well as influence your speech.
If you find yourself in a situation like this, you should strongly consider scheduling an appointment with Dr. Gemma Dalton and her team. After performing a basic assessment of your mouth and the available structure, Dr. Gemma Dalton will present you with a treatment plan designed to restore your full oral function.
Any existing teeth with cavities can often be repaired with dental fillings or a dental crown restoration. Sometimes a single missing tooth can also be restored with a dental bridge.
If you have lost multiple teeth in one location and you’re not comfortable with the idea of a dental implant supported bridge, Dr. Gemma Dalton might recommend a partial denture. This removable dental appliance that will be created in a special dental laboratory to mimic the basic appearance and function of your missing teeth.
If you live in the Bedford, Texas, area and you have lost multiple teeth to untreated cavities you should call 817-571-1667 to schedule an appointment at Gemma Tanglao Dalton, DDS.
