A Solution to a Damaged Smile
Your mouth should never cause pain, frustrations, or leave you unable to perform everyday function. If it is causing you problems, we offer full mouth reconstruction services that include one or more dental procedures with the end goal of restoring your mouth to optimum health. This collection of treatments can take anywhere from months to years to complete, but patients typically experience a rejuvenation to their mouth and an enhanced quality of life after treatment.
Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Dental Reconstruction?
Candidates for full mouth reconstruction can be those who suffer from one or more of the following conditions:
- Multiple missing, loose or failing teeth
- Badly damaged or broken teeth
- Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned bite
- Jaw bone loss
Dental Implants Can Replace Damaged or Missing Teeth
For those who are missing one or multiple teeth, or those with uncomfortable, ill-fitting dentures, we offer dental implants as the ideal alternative to missing teeth. With a full-arch dental implant procedure, we can add four or more implants into your jaw bone and attach a natural-looking tooth prosthesis. With proper care, this can be a permanent solution to tooth loss that can completely restore function and appearance to your mouth. For those who have dentures already, we can add two or more dental implants to your jaw and denture appliance to create a more stable and comfortable denture experience. This is an ideal and affordable solution to loose or ill-fitting dentures.
Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.
Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.
Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses a number of dental implants (as few as four) surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.
Repair Damaged Teeth and Jaw Bone Loss
If your teeth are badly damaged or even broken, we can restore their function and appearance with dental crowns. Made of high-quality porcelain, dental crowns cover damaged teeth, protecting the tooth and allowing it to be used as normal once again. If a tooth is beyond saving, we may perform an extraction to preserve the surrounding area. After tooth extraction we commonly need to restore the jaw bone with a bone graft to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting and to prepare the jaw for dental implants.
Realign Your Bite
In some cases, a patient’s jaw may be misaligned and cause pain or discomfort when opening and closing the mouth. We offer occlusal adjustments for those who have a misaligned bite. This typically involves gently filing down teeth that are hitting at improper locations to create a more harmonious bite alignment. For those with crooked, misaligned teeth, orthodontics may be the best option to straighten your smile. With traditional orthodontics or Invisalign® treatment, we can align your teeth to improve your bite and improve your overall oral health.
