What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth means poor oral health. The advanced stage of gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a dedicated in-network dentist in Chesterfield, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. 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 dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jawbones and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Chesterfield area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
