What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our primary teeth as our smile develops. 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 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 new United Healthcare dentist in Summit, IL who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to an awesome dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be prescribed. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with long-lasting dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Summit area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can get you started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered complete tooth loss, and even if years have gone by since that happened!
