What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent private dentist in Raymore, MO who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a dentist near you. After that, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Raymore area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
