What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have problems consuming solid foods. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a new in-network dentist in Rives, MO who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Rives 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 complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
