Contact sports and automobile collisions can sometimes impact the mouth with extreme force. The resulting oral trauma can cause severe harm to teeth, gums and soft oral tissues.
Emergency treatment in some of these instances might involve extracting the traumatized teeth and suturing the gums.
After all the wounded oral tissues have healed, you should consider scheduling an appointment with one of our dentists, Drs. Chiru and Suryadevara. After examining the void in your mouth they can help you understand your options for restoring the basic function of your missing teeth.
In many of these cases patients find a partial denture convenient. It is essentially a miniature version of a complete denture. The removable oral appliance will closely mimic the appearance your missing teeth while comfortably meeting the natural teeth in your bite pattern.
The partial denture will need to be thoroughly rinsed and lightly brushed each evening to clear away plaque and residual food particles. It should then be soaked in a denture solution before storing it someplace safe.
Make sure to also brush your teeth twice each day to help prevent cavities on your remaining natural teeth. It’s also important to floss at least once per day, including remembering to floss the gumline or the teeth surrounding the partial denture.
