What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontitis could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a professional and friendly private dentist in Blooming Prairie, MN who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your jawbones and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Blooming Prairie area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
