What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a professional and friendly private dentist in Lafayette, IN who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can examine your smile to assess your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. 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 fulls and partials are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants act as natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Lafayette‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
