Causes Of Tooth Loss In Adults

Tooth loss can be a severe indication that there is something going on with your oral health. However, tooth loss can occur for a number of reasons, and it is vital that you find a solution as soon as possible to prevent any further damage. Restorative dentists Dr. Lynn Morgan and Dr. Alec Dancy offer a range of missing teeth replacement options in their Severna Park, MD dental office. During your visit, Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy will examine your teeth to determine which replacement options will best suit your needs. Depending on your case, we may suggest dental implants, dentures, or a dental bridge as your restoration solution.

Reasons For Adult Tooth Loss

Patients can lose teeth for a number of reasons. It is important for your dentist to perform a thorough comprehensive exam to determine the reason for your tooth loss or catch any early signs of complex dental problems that may lead to tooth loss. General dentists Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy take the time to analyze your smile and address any problems to help promote a healthy, functional smile.

We have listed some of the most common ways to lose teeth in hopes that patients will take charge of their oral health and avoid adult tooth loss.

  • Gum Disease: In an advanced stage of gum disease patients can lose their teeth. Gum disease is an infection of the gums that breaks down the connective tissue that supports the teeth. Patients with gum disease may notice bleeding gums, halitosis, swollen gums, shifting teeth, or tooth sensitivity. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other complex dental problems.
  • Tooth Decay: Maintaining a proper oral hygiene routine and scheduling regular visits to our Severna Park dental office can reduce your risks of developing tooth decay. When patients aren’t regular brushing and flossing, plaque can form on the teeth and eventually lead to tooth decay. If tooth decay is left untreated, patients may have a higher risk of tooth loss.
  • Accidents: An accident may occur that may leave you with a cracked or fractured tooth. It is important to visit the dentist to avoid a more complex dental problem from occurring. You may even experience a knocked out tooth, which requires immediate attention.

Schedule A Visit

If you have lost a tooth, schedule a visit to our Severna Park dental office. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy will work with you to provide the dental care you need to restore your smile. If you haven’t scheduled a biannual routine dental exam, take the time to schedule an appointment to ensure your teeth are healthy and function. Patients can schedule an appointment online or call our office 410.415.9015

Create Your Dream Smile With Invisalign

Invisalign Severna Park, MDDo you want straighter teeth, but don’t want to bother with traditional braces?

Traditional braces can be a great solution for patients who want to achieve a straighter smile. However, in recent years, invisible braces have quickly made their way to the forefront of orthodontic treatment. Invisible braces can be a convenient, discreet way to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth for patients of all ages. As dentists, we understand that traditional braces may not fit into your lifestyle, so we offer Invisalign as a way for patients to get the results they want without compromising their lifestyle or dental goals.

Dr. Lynn Morgan and Dr. Alec Dancy are passionate, dedicated cosmetic dentists in Severna Park, MD, who offer a range of cosmetic, restorative, general, and orthodontic services to help patients achieve their ideal smile. If you would like to explore your treatment options, visit our Severna Park, MD dentist office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Morgan or Dr. Dancy.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign are clear, removable aligners that adjust your teeth over a period of time. Invisalign can be used to correct a variety of tooth alignment issues. During your consultation, Dr. Morgan or Dr. Dancy will examine your teeth to determine if Invisalign or another orthodontic treatment may be right for you. If Invisalign is the ideal solution for your smile, we will begin the treatment planning process. Using digital imaging, we take 3-D impressions of your teeth to create an accurate model of your smile. Using your impressions, we will create custom-made aligners that fit comfortably and securely on the teeth. Each aligner should be used for two weeks at a time. Unlike traditional braces, patients can remove their aligners to eat, brush, and floss. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy will give you aftercare instructions, schedule future visits, and discuss the length of treatment.

What dental problems does Invisalign Address?

No two cases are alike, so it is important to find a dentist that takes the time to plan a personalized, practical treatment depending on your needs. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy take the time to examine each patient, address their dental concerns, and plan an appropriate treatment. If you are suffering from crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign may be the solution for you. Invisalign can address a range of alignment issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bite
  • Overcrowded teeth

Not only does Invisalign correct a variety of dental concerns, but it can also be an excellent solution for children and teens. Wearing traditional braces may require years of treatment. However, with Invisalign, the treatment time is usually shorter. With Invisalign, teens and children can reap the benefit of straighter teeth without dealing with the social effects traditional braces may cause.

Schedule A Consultation

Straightening misaligned or crooked teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue, it is a vital part of maintaining optimal oral health. Misaligned teeth are harder to clean, which leaves your teeth more susceptible to developing tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Our goal is to help patients achieve a healthier smile through patient-focused, comprehensive dental care. If you would like to discuss your treatment options, contact our Severna Park dental office. We look forward to meeting you and getting your smile back on track!

Replacing Your Teeth

When replacing missing teeth, it is imperative that your dentist considers factors like the location of missing teeth, the number of missing teeth, your dental goals, budget, and your lifestyle. Although we offer a full range of tooth replacement options, each replacement option provides different benefits for each patient. Depending on your needs, we may provide dental implants, dentures, or a dental bridge as your tooth replacement option.

Depending on your needs, dental implants can secure a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. To receive dental implants, patients will need to have an adequate amount of health jawbone structure. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Dancy will perform a comprehensive exam to determine if dental implants are the right choice for you.
  • Dentures can be used to replace the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. Dentures can be fixed or removable depending on your individual needs. We take the time to create dentures that fit comfortably and securely in the mouth. However, for a long-lasting, durable solution, dentures can be fixed into place using dental implants.
  • A Dental Bridge can be used to replace one or more teeth. A dental bridge can help close the gap between teeth and may rely on neighboring teeth for support. If needed, patients can receive an implant secured dental bridge.
