What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a new private dentist in La Grange Park, IL who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the La Grange Park area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dentists in Nashville, TN with us this week.
