What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your youthful features. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Highlands, NJ who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to a skilled dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jaw and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Highlands‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
