What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our baby teeth as our smile develops. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means oral health complications. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a dedicated in-network dentist in Stephen, MN who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your jaw and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Stephen area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, 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 elapsed since that happened!
