What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As adolescents, we lose our baby teeth as a natural part of growing up. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is often due to injury. The advanced stage of gum disease could be responsible as well. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties with nutritional intake. Problems articulating are a common consequence. Finally, you could risk impacting your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an excellent United Healthcare dentist in Waipahu, HI who can provide prosthetic dentistry. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help you on the road to a full smile.
First, we will connect you to a dedicated dentist in your area. Then, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For minor cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For several missing teeth, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with tooth 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 Waipahu area and have lost your natural teeth, let us help. We can get you started on receiving bridges or dentures. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve suffered edentulism, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
