What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As kids, 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 is the number one cause. Since losing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk damages to your smile alignment, or even your youthful features. You need a dedicated Medicaid dentist in Nampa, ID who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will help connect you to an amazing dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For less severe cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most fulls and partials are removable, they could be secured with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following missing a tooth.
If you live in the Nampa area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can help you get started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
