Moving On From Tooth Loss: Helpful Vs. Unhelpful

We know that no matter the reason you’re missing teeth and regardless of your age, it’s easy to feel very shaken by tooth loss. The good news is that there’s a way to move forward and move on (such as by considering dental implants), so you’re feeling wonderful again. Take a moment to consider helpful approaches (and not so helpful approaches), so you can get your smile and your confidence in your oral health back with ease!

Unhelpful: Ignoring Your Missing Teeth

We know that what may feel like the easiest thing to do is to do nothing at all! Perhaps you aren’t sure how to approach tooth loss, you don’t know anything about dental implants or other prosthetics, and so you figure you’ll just wait a while or pretend nothing happened. Unfortunately, this can lead to problems with hygiene, misalignment, jaw tissue loss, and more!

Helpful: Choosing Dental Implants

A very good approach to moving on from tooth loss is to consider dental implants and other prosthetic solutions. With implants, you can replace the entirety of your tooth or teeth. You can also look forward to the preservation of your alignment and jaw tissue (while hygiene is easy and effective again).

Unhelpful: Feeling Guilty

Feeling guilty will make you feel bad. However, it won’t actually do anything for your smile. We say, consider saying goodbye to guilt and instead, take a more positive approach.

Helpful: Becoming Proactive

Getting motivated and putting decisions into motion for your smile, such as visiting us to learn about dental implants, will help you feel good. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, your smile will be restored, and if you care for it, there will be nothing to worry about!
