What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. 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 a permanent in-network dentist in Sturbridge, AR who can correct your tooth loss. 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 understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jaw and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Sturbridge area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
