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. Periodontitis leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means issues with smile stability. You could have difficulties consuming solid foods. Problems articulating clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile alignment, or even smile’s stability. You need an experienced United Healthcare dentist in West Belmar, NJ who can replace missing teeth. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to a friendly dentist in your area. Once we do, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to understand the factors behind your tooth loss. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, addressing one to three lost teeth in a row. For multiple gaps, partials could offer a solution and restore bite function. Finally, a complete denture could be custom-made. While most complete dentures and partials are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your maxilla and mandible and facial structure following losing a tooth.
If you live in the West Belmar area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us help. We can help you get 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 elapsed since that happened!
