What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent in-network dentist in Scenic Foothills, AK who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jawbones and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Scenic Foothills‘s proximity and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
