Full mouth reconstruction involves one or several restorative dental procedures to restore and replace the teeth in a person's mouth. Full mouth reconstruction is a specialty service offered at Dentist of Miami and Orthodontics.
People with multiple oral health issues such as tooth decay, missing teeth, or damaged teeth may benefit from full mouth reconstruction. No matter the cause, people will find it incredibly challenging to live without a full set of functional teeth. Fortunately, we can use full mouth reconstruction to restore both the functionality and appearance of teeth.
Instead of only focusing on one aspect of the mouth, we can help address multiple aspects. Along with ensuring that the teeth are customized to fit each patient's unique needs, we will replace missing teeth to create a uniform smile. This way, they can enjoy the benefits of a functional and sturdy set of teeth that also provide a great, natural appearance.
In many cases, the patient may have experienced a traumatic accident and be in need of repairing a chipped tooth, while also simultaneously replacing another tooth that fell out. Since accidents can happen at any time, it is difficult to prepare for the possibility of damaging more than one tooth. Through full mouth reconstruction, the dentist will be able to repair the mouth, while also repairing the appearance and functionality of a patient's teeth.
In other cases, a patient may lose multiple teeth to dental caries (tooth decay), gum disease, or other infections. Upon infection, the dentist will do everything in his or her power to prevent spreading. However, some patients may not visit the dentist at least once every six months and allow the infection to spread. If the infection spreads to the tooth, then there is a possibility that an extraction will be necessary.
When a patient has an infection, a root canal is one option to treat the tooth. A root canal allows the dentist to remove the infected pulp and clean the area. Following a root canal, we will plug up the hole with a dental filling. In the cases where the tooth is removed due to infection, we may recommend a dental implant. The dental implant is a titanium post that bonds with the jaw bone through osseointegration. We will also place a dental crown on top of the implant to create a sturdy and natural-looking tooth.
For some people, proper dental care is not a common part of daily life. When one chooses to not practice proper dental care, the teeth wear down more quickly as a result. Acid from certain foods, types of citrus, beverages, acid reflux, grinding and more are all causes for a patient to lose his or her teeth more quickly.
At Dentist of Miami and Orthodontics, we can monitor the teeth at least once every six months and help patients remain healthy.
At Dentist of Miami and Orthodontics, we will ensure that each patient receives the best full mouth reconstruction for his or her needs.
