What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties eating. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a professional and friendly in-network dentist in Elmore, MN who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For several missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Elmore‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
