What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. However, as adults, losing teeth is often due to injury. Periodontitis is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems talking could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need an experienced in-network dentist in Woodbury, 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 a friendly dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and address complicated tooth loss. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Woodbury‘s neighborhoods and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
