Long-term problems with gum disease can lead to concentrated bacterial deposits deep within your periodontal tissues. In time severe gum disease can ravage the roots of multiple teeth leading to tooth loss, or multiple teeth in one area that are on the brink of failure.
In a situation like this you should consider scheduling an appointment at Berryville Dental Associates in Berryville, Virginia. Our dentists will start by examining the health of your gums and the remaining structure of your existing teeth. In some of these cases chronic gum disease can also lead to a loss of healthy bone structure, which could counter indicate a dental implant restoration.
In a case such as this Dr. Gina Kaiser and Nicole Malony might advocate a treatment plan that includes extracting multiple teeth to prepare the area to host a partial denture. The sophisticated oral appliance can be removed and installed in under a minute and will fully replicate the physical function and appearance of the previously compromised teeth.
Our dentists will provide you with some basic care and maintenance instructions. Thoroughly rinsing, lightly brushing and remembering to soak your partial denture in a special solution each night will help preserve the oral appliance as well as the gum tissues in the area.
