What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our baby teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need an experienced private dentist in Royalton, MN who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to assess your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Royalton area and have lost your natural teeth, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
