Reasons You May Lose All Your Teeth and Plans for Replacing Your Teeth
Posted on 9/6/2021 by Shiv Sharma, DDS
Losing your teeth is traumatic, whether you lose them slowly throughout the years or suddenly because of an accident. We want to help you in any circumstance to have hope by knowing that we have solutions for what seems like the worst thing that could happen in your mouth.
What is Happening to my Teeth?
Perhaps you were in a car wreck or playing a contact sport when you were hit in the face. Sometimes the result of a major collision is losing several teeth. You can also lose your teeth because of an illness. If you have an autoimmune disorder or disease, your teeth can fall out as bacteria overcomes your gums. Similarly, some patients have periodontal disease, which is also called gum disease. This is another situation in which patients frequently lose their teeth. Lastly, habits can cause you to lose your teeth. If you are a smoker, your teeth will most likely be stained a dark yellow. In addition, the chemicals from the cigarettes may cause your teeth to fall out.
What Can I do to Replace My Teeth?
Several options are available to replace your missing teeth. The treatment depends on the location of your missing teeth as well as your budget. The first option is to get dental implants. Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that looks like a real tooth. They are a permanent solution and should last for a long time. Another option is to have a set of dentures made for your mouth. With dentures, you have less cost and a nice product.
