What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a new private dentist in Geyer Springs, AR who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Geyer Springs area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
