4 Reminders About Treating Tooth Loss

The idea of treating tooth loss might be something that’s very new for you. As a result, you may realize that you’re not feeling entirely sure about its benefits, about when to get started, and the list goes on. Then again, even if you have dealt with replacing teeth in the past, it’s still possible to deal with a lot of hesitation, particularly if you are new to our Ankeny, IA practice and don’t know how to begin. Wherever you are with your current “I need my teeth replaced, please” journey, we happily remind you that we’re here to make sure you get the full support and the treatment that best fit your needs! Start with some reminders (and remember to call us!).

#1: The Sooner The Better

When you’re treating tooth loss, it’s important to keep in mind that though you do not have to feel rushed, it is still best to see us as soon as you can. Remember that the missing teeth in your smile leave openings. It’s easy to assume that each tooth has its own designated spot in which it will continue to stand but that’s not exactly true. The teeth that are still present can begin to slowly inch their way toward openings. As you have noticed, this issue can lead to misalignment. In addition, openings make for more difficult hygiene and can promote jaw damage. Come in!

#2: It Offers You All Sorts Of Benefits

When you treat your tooth loss, you’re doing a lot of good things for yourself. As we just mentioned, you’ll be completing your smile, which means helping to keep your smile in its usual alignment, you’ll enjoy easy and effective dental hygiene that helps you avoid oral health problems, and of course: You’ll restore your smile’s function.

#3: We Offer A Variety Of Solutions

Another very important reminder about treating tooth loss is the fact that it’s not a bad experience. Instead, it’s a very nice one, when you visit our team!
