What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. The advanced stage of gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties eating. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a professional and friendly in-network dentist in Northeast, AK who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Northeast area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.
