What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, 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 clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Glyndon, MN who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to an experienced dentist in your area. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be stablized with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Glyndon area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. 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 years have elapsed since that happened!
