What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. 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 this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent in-network dentist in Bejou, MN who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Bejou‘s neighborhoods and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
