About Mouth Reconstruction
Tooth loss, gum disease, decay, and other issues can cause serious damage to your oral health. Full mouth reconstruction restores the structural integrity of dentition that has been plagued by multiple oral health problems. Our comprehensive treatment plans can also be an excellent option for patients who have suffered dental trauma from an accident or injury. The goal of dental reconstruction is to reinstate good health and function to your smile by using the latest technology to create natural-looking restorations that function like healthy, natural teeth.

To determine your full mouth reconstruction treatments, your doctor will perform a complete exam of your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite. The evaluation will include x-rays and potentially other imaging and tests. Once your doctor develops your treatment plan, he will discuss it with you in detail to make sure you are fully informed. Based on your individual needs, your treatment plan will include some combination of the following procedures.
A dental bridge fills the space where one or more teeth in a row are missing. The teeth (or pontics) in dental bridges are usually made of porcelain, especially for teeth in the front of the mouth, as porcelain has a very natural look. Traditional dental bridges are secured with dental crowns placed on the teeth that neighbor the space left by lost teeth. As an alternative to crowns, dental implants can also support a dental bridge. Implants are placed into the jaw, thus they don’t require altering healthy teeth with dental crowns.
For a filling, your doctor removes decay, then uses composite resin to fill cavities. Tooth-colored composite fillings blend in with natural tooth enamel and restore the structural integrity of decayed teeth.
When tooth decay or a deep fracture is not repairable with a filling, a dental crown is the next option. Crowns are created from various materials, with porcelain being the most popular. Dental crowns are made to match the exact shade of surrounding teeth for an aesthetically desirable look.
Root Canal Therapy
When the inner tooth is compromised by decay or trauma, a root canal is a corrective alternative to extraction. Our dentists first remove infected pulp and then clean and reshape the root canals. The sterilized space is then filled with a man-made material. This enables the tooth to be retained in the mouth instead of extracted.
A dental implant is a small metal post surgically placed in the jawbone to replace a missing tooth’s root. Implants can support a crown, bridge, and even full dentures for patients missing all of their teeth. The benefit of dental implant treatment versus other prosthetic options is that implants halt bone loss, look and feel natural, and provide the strongest, most permanent type of restoration available.
