What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an experienced private dentist in Renick, MO 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 a dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several gaps, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Renick area and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. The smile of your dreams is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
