When you need dental treatment, it’s very simple to only look at the surface level issues. Commonly, there are a few issues that should be examined to that deal with parts of the mouth that you can’t normally see. These can sometimes be both cosmetically and medically important to have a solid and beautiful smile. A full mouth reconstruction evaluates every aspect of the different dental treatments required for recreating a healthy smile. Tooth decay, tooth loss, gum illnesses, and bone deterioration are all issues that might have to be addressed and managed before the completion of a mouth reconstruction.
Dependent on the severity of your dental issues, several smaller restorative procedures may be included in your treatment plan. On your first consultation visit, Dr. Miller will offer recommendations for a treatment plan, address any of your concerns and explore all your options. These are based on your goals, underlying causes of dental health problems and your expectations. Here are some of the procedures which may be discussed:
- Dental crowns which preserve the health of the teeth and enhance your appearance
- Dental bridges for when you are missing teeth
- Inlays or onlays protect a tooth from further decay or damage and look more natural than metal fillings
- Dentures, both partial and full
- Dental implants, a permanent solution for tooth loss
- TMJ therapy
The entire full mouth reconstruction can take anywhere from a few months to a year to complete. Even though the wait can be a hassle, the outcomes can transform you and is well worth the wait. A healthy mouth not only looks better and gives you more confidence, but it also is better for your physical health. Gum disease is associated with tooth loss and decay, and it has been correlated with other chronic health issues, such as diabetes, stroke and heart disease. Complete dentistry looks at your whole health, evaluates your needs and creates a plan for results.
