What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our primary teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. The advanced stage of gum disease is the number one cause. Since missing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems eating. Problems speaking could occur. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a new Medicaid dentist in Park City, IL who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can examine your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be secured with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Park City area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can get you started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if many years have elapsed since that happened!
P. S. Please congratulate our dental surgeons in Nashville, TN with us this week.
