Group Health Dental Can Help You With Your Missing Tooth
“I thought the tooth fairy was a very creepy concept as a kid. ‘Put your tooth under the pillow.’ I was like, ‘Why does someone want my teeth?” –Guillermo del Toro
What did you think about the Tooth Fairy when you were a kid? Most kids loved her and were astonished that they could get money for simply losing a tooth. It was magical. A kid that lost her tooth and has the toothless grin is adorable. It’s like a rite of passage for all kids, and celebrated by the money under the pillow placed there magically by the sparkly Tooth Fairy.
As an adult, a lost tooth is an entirely different story. It is certainly not a fairy tale, and definitely not something that is celebrated or commemorated by anything. Quite the opposite happens. Fear of embarrassment for the way it looks sets in. Concern about the fact that there is no other adult teeth waiting in the gums to replace the missing tooth. Pain and discomfort may settle in as you try to navigate your usual function of your mouth with a missing tooth in there.
