What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems talking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly Aetna dentist in Little Rock, AR who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to an awesome dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Little Rock area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
