What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems eating. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a new in-network dentist in Minneapolis, MN who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Minneapolis area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
P. S. Please celebrate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.
