Full mouth reconstruction uses various procedures to repair or replace damaged, decaying, or missing permanent teeth.
You might be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction if you’ve lost teeth because of general wear-and-tear or oral health problems. Full mouth reconstruction can restore your smile and reduce your risk of potentially serious problems, such as gum recession and bone loss.
At Tropical Dental Care, the team tailors full mouth reconstruction to each patient’s needs and oral health history. They might recommend:
Dental implants are small metal screws that replace your natural tooth roots. Your dentist inserts them into your empty tooth sockets, and they integrate with your bone. Implants provide a foundation for crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
If you have a severely decaying or damaged tooth or you’re only missing a single permanent tooth, the team might recommend a crown or a bridge.
A crown is a cap bonded on top of your tooth. It restores your tooth’s size and shape while preventing additional damage.
A bridge fills a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth. The bridge is held in place with two crowns or a metal framework.
If you have gum disease or a receding gum line, Tropical Dental Care might recommend periodontal treatment, such as flap surgery or a bone graft.
During flap surgery, your dentist removes a piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth and stitches it over your receding gums. The tissues fuse together after surgery, restoring your gum line to a healthier condition.
Your dentist might prescribe orthodontic treatment with SureSmile® if you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth. Orthodontic appliances can quickly treat alignment problems without surgery.
Dentures are removable prosthetics that replace some or all of your permanent teeth. They rest on top of your gums and restore your biting and chewing abilities. Tropical Dental Care offers partial, complete, and implant-supported dentures.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded to your permanent teeth. They mask oral imperfections, such as stains or unusually shaped teeth.
Bonding repairs damaged tooth enamel, including chips and cracks. It can even fill gaps between your teeth. The bonding material dries quickly and can withstand the forces of daily activities like biting and chewing.
Full mouth reconstruction and a smile makeover are often mentioned together, but they aren’t the same. A smile makeover is an elective procedure that involves various types of cosmetic treatments. Full mouth reconstruction is different in that it’s necessary. If you’ve lost permanent teeth, it’s crucial you replace them.
