Maxillofacial injuries can sometimes impact the mouth with such force that badly damages multiple teeth. In some of these scenarios emergency treatment might call for extracting the remaining teeth while immediately treating other traumatized oral tissues.
After all the wounded tissues have fully healed you should consider setting up an appointment with one of our skilled dentists. After a comprehensive examination, we can help you understand your options for restoring the essential function of your missing teeth.
If you have lost a significant amount of bone structure in the affected area our dentist might recommend fitting you for a partial denture. The removable dental appliance that will be created to specifically mimic the basic appearance and function of your missing teeth.
The size and intended location your partial denture might also call for including special hardware components to help marry its relationship with the adjacent natural teeth.
Even with a firm and comfortable fit many people with a removable partial denture will also apply a small amount of denture adhesive when installing it each morning. A small bead on the base can help securely marry the oral appliance to the underlying gums while also helping to block out stray food particles.
