What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an excellent in-network dentist in Westbrook, MN who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an experienced dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your jawbones and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Westbrook area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
