What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our deciduous teeth as a natural part of growing up. 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 issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties eating. Problems articulating could occur. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even your facial structure. You need an excellent United Healthcare dentist in Waimalu, HI 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 a friendly dentist near you. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be placed, addressing one to three missing teeth in a row. For multiple missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture or CD could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be stablized with dental implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and stimulate bone preservation in your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Waimalu‘s proximity and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving the tooth replacement you need. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
