What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems eating. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly Blue Cross Blue Shield dentist in Union, NJ who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Union area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
