Keep reading to learn more about how full-mouth reconstructions work with the help of dental implants, bridges, and/or dental crowns in Fox Chapel.
When Is a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Necessary?
There are a number of factors that could occur to necessitate a full-mouth reconstruction. Because this treatment method rebuilds or replaces all or many of the teeth in the mouth, a full-mouth reconstruction is typically reserved for the most significant dental damage. Some patients who require this treatment may be:
- People who are already missing many teeth or have several failing teeth
- Patients with numerous old fillings and prior dental work
- Teeth that are worn down due to teeth grinding and jaw clenching
- Patients who have had their mouths altered due to oral cancer
- People with certain congenital disorders affecting the mouth
What Are the Procedures in a Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
If you could benefit from a full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Voller will carefully evaluate your teeth and gums while also considering your health, lifestyle, and personal smile goals to determine a treatment plan that will help you achieve success.
Some of the treatments which are commonly used in a full-mouth reconstruction include:
- Dental implants in Fox Chapel: A comprehensive tooth replacement that rebuilds a missing tooth from the root up.
- Dental crowns: Tooth-shaped restorations which can be placed over a severely decayed or damaged tooth. Or, when supported by a dental implant, a dental crown can replace a single missing tooth.
- Dental bridges: A method of replacing several missing teeth.
- Dentures: Good for significant tooth loss. Dentures can be retained by dental implants for additional security.
There is no single treatment plan for a full-mouth reconstruction. Yours may combine any number of treatments depending on your needs.
