Often, we encounter people with serious oral health concerns, but who have avoided treatment for years. The rational was that they required so many different treatments, they were beyond help, but eventually broken down and saw a dentist due to discomfort. Fortunately, in these cases we can address multiple problems with a full mouth reconstruction. Do you need a full mouth reconstruction?
Frequently Asked Questions About Full Mouth Reconstruction
Question: How do I get started?
Answer: Schedule a visit! We will discuss your goals and the areas of your smile you wish to improve. We will carefully examine your smile to identify the causes of your problems and assess their severity. From there, we can create a customized treatment plan.
Question: How extensive is a reconstruction?
Answer: That depends on the severity of your oral health concerns. Some reconstructions can be conservative, while others can be rather extensive. Each one is unique to the patient and the patient’s oral health.
Question: What if I have missing teeth?
Answer: In addition to correcting damaged teeth with crowns or veneers, we often encounter situations where a patient has lost one or more of his/her natural teeth. Fortunately, we can offer several options to replace these teeth and restore a patient’s ability to eat and speak without difficulty. We can replace one or more missing teeth with a dental bridge or a dental implant. We can address more serious cases of tooth loss with a full or partial denture. For added stability, we can even offer fixed dentures using dental implants.
Question: Does procedure also address esthetics?
Answer: Yes. In addition to the general and restorative procedures meant to address function, we can offer cosmetic treatments to address esthetics. Using teeth whitening, we can remove discoloration. Veneers allow our team to reshape the teeth or address permanent discoloration. Bonding and contouring can address minor issues with chipped teeth or pits/grooves in the tooth surface.
