Common Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures
A full mouth reconstruction treatment plan can include any two or more restorative procedures. The specific procedures included in your personalized plan will vary, as they are selected to meet your individual needs.
Dental implants are considered the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Implant-supported restorations replace the entire tooth structure from root to crown. By mimicking the role of dental roots, dental implants can prevent bone loss and other complications. They are also incredibly versatile. Dental implants can support an array of restorations, from dental crowns to full dentures.
For patients missing most or all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures are the most secure option. They offer countless benefits over traditional, removable dentures. Because the implants are permanently affixed in the jaw, the denture can secure attach to the implants. In this way, patients never have to worry about their dentures slipping out of place.
Dental bridges are ideal when just one to three consecutive teeth are missing. Our doctors high-quality, tooth-colored materials to ensure a beautiful and lifelike appearance. Traditional dental bridges are secured with dental crowns, but implant-supported bridges offer greater stability.
A full mouth reconstruction may include our porcelain and zirconia crowns. These restorations can repair and strengthen teeth that have suffered decay or damage without affecting the aesthetics of the smile. Porcelain and zirconia are precisely shaded to match the natural color of your teeth.
Tooth loss causes the surrounding bone to deteriorate. To help ensure all interested patients can qualify for implants, Dr. Damon can perform bone grafting. This procedure uses natural or synthetic bone material to rebuild the jaw and provide a strong foundation.
Patients suffering from gum disease may require periodontal therapy. Procedures like scaling and root planing can eliminate gum disease and restore your gum health.
