We offer a host of cosmetic, restorative, and prosthetic dental treatments, all designed to help you maintain your natural teeth and enjoy improved oral health. However, in some cases a single procedure may not be enough to address the problems with your smile. We may suggest a full mouth reconstruction to address the health and appearance of your smile.
The Dangers of Poor Oral Health
When we suffer from poor oral health, a number of uncomfortable issues can develop. First, tooth decay can be painful and eventually lead to serious infections. You can also lose one or more of your teeth as a result of injury or possibly disease. Jaw joint disorders, such as TMJ disorder or bruxism, can lead to discomfort and potentially wear down the teeth. Problems with alignment or your bite can cause pain when you eat or speak. Misalignment can also increase the risk of gingivitis and cavities. Correcting misalignment means protecting your smile from tooth loss.
What Happens During a Reconstruction?
That will depend on a number of different factors. Each reconstruction is personalized; we will examine your smile to assess the state of your oral health and pinpoint the problems affecting your smile. We will then recommend cosmetic, restorative, or even prosthetic dental procedures to address the problem and improve your smile. As a result, a reconstruction could be conservative or rather extensive.
How Do I Keep My Reconstructed Smile Healthy?
Afterward, be sure and take steps to protect your smile. Avoid tobacco products and take time to properly brush and floss your teeth as often as the dentist recommends. You should also see your dentist about once every six months for a thorough checkup and cleaning.
