What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, as adults, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontal disease could be responsible as well. Since missing teeth at this age isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems speaking are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a skilled United Healthcare dentist in Prospect Park, NJ who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a skilled dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be placed, restoring smile function. For multiple gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partial dentures are removable, they could be secured with tooth implants. Dental implants essentially look and function like natural teeth, and preserve bone density in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the Prospect Park‘s neighborhoods and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. 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 years have gone by since that happened!
