Individuals who skip their dental checkups or do not brush and floss on a regular basis are at increased risk of suffering from tooth decay and gum disease. In some of these cases, untreated cavities can lead to the loss of multiple teeth.
Rather than trying to live with lost teeth, you should consider scheduling an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Bruce Speake. Our dentist can address any active oral health problems and fit you for a removable partial denture This is a special dental appliance that will be created in a dental laboratory to mimic the basic appearance and function of your lost teeth. Some partial dentures also incorporate simple hardware components to help hold them in place. Some people with a partial denture may also apply a small amount of denture adhesive when putting them in each morning. Not only can this help bond the denture to your gums, but can help to keep stray food from irritating your gums.
If you live in the Topeka, Kansas, area and you have lost multiple teeth to untreated cavities, we invite you to call us at 785-783-6890 to schedule an appointment with our Bruce Speake DDS PA team. We look forward to helping you with all of your oral care needs!
