Untreated Cavities That Cause the Loss of Multiple Teeth Might Be Replaced with a Removable Partial Denture

Posted .

If you struggle with severe dental anxiety or dental phobia, you might have given in to the temptation to skip your routine dental checkups. This can prove to be a serious error in judgment with long-lasting consequences.

Without professional cleaning, examination, and possible preventive care from a dentist like Dr. Thomas Ouellette you could be placing your teeth at extreme risk of suffering tooth decay. In time multiple teeth might be too severely compromised for Dr. Thomas Ouellette to treat them with a root canal. This will require total extraction, to alleviate the pain and prevent a dangerous periodontal infection.

Once any infection concerns have passed and the local gum tissues have healed, Dr. Thomas Ouellette can help you understand your options for restoring your missing teeth or replacing their basic function and appearance.

If you have lost significant bone structure to tooth decay and gum disease, or the void is too large for a dental bridge restoration, Dr. Thomas Ouellette might recommend fitting you for a removable partial denture.

It is essentially an abbreviated form of a complete denture designed to replicate each of your missing teeth. It will be created in a professional dental lab to closely mimic the shape, appearance, and presence of the original teeth.

If you live in the Denver, Colorado, area and you have multiple teeth suffering from cavities, you should call 303.296.1402 to set up a consultation at Thomas E Ouellette, DDS, PC’s dental offices.
