What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontal disease is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent private dentist in Nevada, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be prescribed. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Nevada area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
