What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly in-network dentist in Basher, AK who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a friendly dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Basher‘s proximity and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
