What To Do When You Lose Natural Teeth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties eating. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a permanent in-network dentist in Bemidji, MN 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 skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind 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, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Bemidji area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
