What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly in-network dentist in Portland, OR who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Portland area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
