After Tooth Loss: Why You Shouldn’t Give Up

Do you feel like you’ve lost some of your get-up-and-go after experiencing tooth loss? We understand that it can be very challenging to spring back from losing a tooth or multiple teeth. However, you will be happy to find out it’s something that happens to people every single day, both men and women, and to people of nearly every age. Fortunately, you can control how you respond to this challenge (with our help) and you can look forward to a restored smile. Let us offer some sage advice.

A Healthy Mouth Is Still Important

Let’s say you become very upset about your missing teeth after tooth loss. As a result, you wonder why you should even bother brushing and flossing your teeth anymore. Avoiding dental hygiene will most definitely result in decay and probably gum disease. When these problems are left untreated, you quickly steer yourself away from the ability to easily replace your teeth. Why? We will first need to address the new oral disease. Any remaining teeth that may have provided support to certain prosthetics may become too damaged to do so. You may also experience jawbone deterioration and additional tooth loss. Care for your smile to avoid these complications and remember that help is around the corner.

About Your Options

You might feel like there’s no hope for your smile after tooth loss. This might be because you have lost a lot of teeth, because you are unfamiliar with your tooth replacement options, or because you feel like the road ahead is quite long. While it’s true that replacing teeth requires a bit of a lengthier journey than coming in for a filling, for example, it’s not excruciating. In fact, it’s easy! We will talk with you about options, such as dental bridges or dental implants, and help you by setting up a care plan that focuses solely on your needs. Don’t give up!
