05 Jan Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures
When it comes to enhancing the overall health and appearance of your smile, the best option to consider is a full mouth reconstruction. This will involve the combination of multiple dental care procedures in order to restore and enhance the overall condition of a person’s mouth. When you meet with a Scottsdale oral surgeon and dental health specialist, you will be able to learn more about full mouth reconstructions in greater detail. Right now, we’d like to look at some of the basics of full mouth reconstruction treatment so you understand what to expect and how it can help you.
Custom Comprehensive Dental Treatment
We should note that every full mouth reconstruction is customized to the patient. Since each patient has different needs, we want to make sure that these individual needs are met. If you would like to learn more about how a customized treatment would work, the team at our Arizona facial rejuvenation and oral surgery centers would be more than happy to discuss these matters with you. Below are some basic treatments that can prove helpful to most patients.
For cavities (dental caries), the best solution is dental fillings. These will help restore any missing tooth structure and improve overall bite strength of the tooth in the process.
Inlays and Onlays
For tooth decay and tooth damage too severe for a traditional dental filling, the best option to consider is an inlay or an onlay. Inlays and onlays are like larger dental fillings designed for major portions of tooth structure.
When inlays and onlays are no longer viable options for addressing tooth decay, the best option to consider is a dental crown. These are caps that fit over the damaged/decayed tooth, improving its strength and protecting it from further damage.
When you are missing a few teeth, a great option to consider is a dental bridge. Dental bridges latch onto your remaining teeth adjacent to the tooth gap, allowing you to smile with confidence and eat just as you normally would.
When you are missing many teeth in a row, a dental bridge is no longer a viable option. In such cases, the best treatment to consider is a denture. These are held in place by bracing around remaining gum and jawbone structure.
For the most secure hold of dental bridges and dentures, it’s important to consider Scottsdale dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into a person’s jawbone and gum tissue. They provide a hold that is comparable to natural tooth roots.
Other Options for Aesthetic Enhancement
Having a great smile is not the only option out there for enhancing your overall appearance. In addition to undergoing a full mouth reconstruction, undergoing facial plastic surgery can give you the look that you’ve always wanted. We’d be more than happy to discuss all your options for enhanced aesthetic enhancement in greater detail during your visit to our practice.
