What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth means poor oral health. Gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems speaking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent Guardian dentist in Summit, IL who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help find a local dentist.
First, we will help connect you to a friendly dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate 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 missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be supported with multiple dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Summit‘s proximity and need a solution for tooth loss, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. 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!
