What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Anchorage, AK who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Anchorage‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
