What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need a dedicated in-network dentist in Strafford, MO who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will help connect you to a friendly dentist near you. Then, your new dentist can inspect your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete set of dentures could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Strafford area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
