With all that modern dentistry has to offer patients have more choices than ever before when it comes to full mouth reconstruction. For those with severely damaged as well as diseased or traumatized teeth, reconstructive dentistry can help. One example of reconstructive related dentistry that offers full mouth repair includes replacing all missing teeth with individual dental implants. This is a surgical process that essentially replaces missing tooth roots with a titanium rod. The rod is inserted directly into the patient’s jawbone and then acts just like a natural tooth.
A Crown Can Be Placed Over A Damaged Tooth In Order To Add Strength
As an alternative to multiple individual dental implants, just a few dental implants strategically placed can be used as a way to snap in a permanent denture. When it comes to redesigning a smile, there are more options today than ever before. Those with severely damaged teeth may choose a full mouth type reconstruction using dental crowns or dental veneers. Dental crowns are unique because they can make teeth that are weak much stronger. A crown can be placed over a damaged tooth in order to add strength, improve functionality and improve appearance.
A Wide Range Of Reconstructive Procedures
In addition to full mouth reconstruction, restorative dentistry includes everything from placing bridges to adding fillings, inlays and onlays. Cosmetic dentistry plays a key role in reconstructive dentistry as well. Porcelain veneers, teeth whitening as well as dental bonding and other similar procedures are often used as a way to supplement a wide range of reconstructive procedures. In addition everything from orthodontics to oral surgery and periodontal treatments can also be combined with reconstructive dentistry to produce the best possible results for the patient.
