What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Gum disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need a permanent Lincoln Financial Group dentist in Olathe, KS who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
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 understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your alveolar bone and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Olathe area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. Model-worthy teeth are within reach, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if many years have gone by since that happened!
