Routine dental cleanings and exams can get a lot done, but sometimes people can develop major dental health issues. It's for that reason that full mouth reconstructions are performed. A full mouth reconstruction is essentially a combination of restorative dentistry and cosmetic procedures that help restore the overall health and beauty of your mouth. Your Boston cosmetic dentist can go over these matters in full detail when you come in for a visit.
Determining the Best Treatment Plan for Your Needs
Every patient who undergoes a full mouth reconstruction is likely to have different needs. During your meeting with our cosmetic and restorative dentistry team in Boston, we'll assess your current situation and create a treatment plan just for you. Below are some of the most popular procedures performed as part of a full mouth reconstruction.
Inlays and Onlays
For severe tooth decay, it's important that you get a more substantial dental restoration than a dental filling. That's where inlays and onlays come in. These large dental restorations are ideal for the cusps of the teeth (the biting surfaces) and will help improve the strength and appearance of your smile.
When inlays and onlays are not enough, there are dental crowns. These dental restorations will cap your decayed or damaged tooth, protecting it from further harm and providing a much more appealing appearance in the process.
When you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, it's important that you have the tooth gap filled. Getting Boston dental bridges will help restore the appearance of the smile and allow you to chew normally.
Dental bridges may not be enough for some instances of tooth loss. For patients who are missing many teeth, dentures are more ideal. Partial dentures or full dentures may be used to help restore a person's ability to chew normally and smile with confidence.
If you are missing a tooth, dental implant can be used to hold dental bridges, dentures, or even individual dental crowns in place. These artificial tooth roots provide a solid hold and are great for maintaining gum tissue and bone density.
Invisalign® Invisible Braces
For teeth that are crooked, a great option to consider is Invisalign® invisible braces. These transparent plastic aligners will help keep your teeth in proper position without anyone realizing they are in place.
Gum disease can be a major dental health issue, affecting the soft tissues in your mouth as well as your teeth. There are numerous periodontal treatments that we can perform to ensure your gum health is enhanced.
Root Canal Therapy
When the interior tissue and pulp of a tooth is infected by bacterial decay, it's important that root canal therapy be performed. This will help reduce tooth sensitivity and prevent more serious dental heath issues from developing.
TMJ Disorder Treatments
Locking, popping, clicking, and crunching in the jaw joint are signs of a TMJ disorder. This could be caused by poor tooth alignment and/or tooth grinding at night. We have many different ways of identifying the cause of a TMJ disorder and alleviating it.
