How To Manage Multiple Teeth Loss
2
Tooth loss can cause negative effects to the
total well being of an individual. It affects the
persons ability to eat, speak and even smile or
laugh.
3
People with multiple teeth loss often judges by
others to be unhealthy, unhygienic and are not
able to take care of themselves. This kind of
negativity can influence the persons self
confidence and his/her ability to land a good job.
4
Losing multiple teeth can be attributed to
different factors such as trauma, dental
diseases, and bad dental habits such as bruxism
or teeth grinding.
5
A tooth or multiple teeth can be knocked out from
accidents such as falling where your face hits
the ground, colliding to a person or objects in
sports, or in vehicular accidents and trauma,
where someone hits you on the face.
6
The most common cause of tooth loss among adults
and children is dental diseases. Dental disease
if left untreated, will not only cause decay to
the tooths structures but it will also damage
the tooths surrounding tissues (gums) and
supporting structures (jaw bone) which can
eventually lead to tooth loss.
7
Lastly, bad dental habits such as teeth grinding
when angry and stressed may wear out and fracture
a tooth in a way that it cannot be saved and must
be extracted.
8
With the advancement in dental technology, there
are many options in replacing missing teeth.
Among these options, using dental implants prove
to be more advantageous.
9
They are more stable and resistant to decay.
Since they function as a dental root, they help
prevent bone loss which is caused by a missing
tooth. After an implant is placed, a dental crown
is used to cover and protect it.
10
In dealing with multiple teeth loss, usually a
dentist would advise his/her patient to replace
the teeth with the use of a fixed dental bridge.
A traditional fixed dental bridge would make use
of the remaining healthy adjacent teeth to serve
as abutments.
11
These teeth undergo grinding to fit the crowns
present in the bridge. However, if you choose to
have dental implants, you can save these
remaining teeth from being manipulated. The
implants will serve as the abutments in lieu of
the adjacent teeth.
12
Adjacent teeth used as abutments in a dental
bridge are often at risk for tooth decay. Since
dental implants are usually made from titanium
alloy, the risk for decay under the bridge is not
possible.

If you consider dental implants as the method of
choice in managing multiple teeth loss, ask your
Oakbrook dentist about it. He/she will offer you
Oakbrook dental implants that will best serve
your needs and budget. http//myoakbrookdentist.
