What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced private dentist in San Francisco, CA who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can inspect your smile to assess your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the San Francisco area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
