What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a skilled Cigna dentist in Iowa City, IA who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be stablized with titanium implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Iowa City area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
