Multi-Stage Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Repair Major Damage and Completely Restore Your Smile
Leading Dental Solutions offers personalized full mouth reconstruction at our Lansdale, PA, practice. This treatment combines multiple restorative procedures to address significant or widespread dental damage. Dr. David M. Kaffey and Dr. Mark S. Weinstein are specially trained in restorative dentistry, and they offer meticulous, gentle care. In this way, they can address even the most severe dental problems, and they can fully restore your oral health. Additionally, as aesthetic experts, they can often perform cosmetic dentistry treatments following your reconstruction, allowing you to enjoy complete oral function as well as a beautiful smile and a healthy sense of self-confidence.
Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is appropriate for patients with severely compromised oral health, particularly following gum disease, facial trauma, or extensive decay. You could be a candidate for reconstruction if you want to correct a number of oral problems at once, including:
- Numerous missing teeth
- Multiple cavities
- Loose teeth
- Weakened teeth
- Pronounced dental erosion
- Jawbone degeneration
- Gum recession
Full mouth reconstruction can often provide better results than you would experience if you went to multiple practices for different restorative treatments.
What Happens during Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction can combine any of our restorative treatments. The process will be completely tailored to your needs. At your comprehensive consultation, you will discuss your goals for reconstruction as well as your treatment options. Possible procedures include:
- Scaling and root planing: Also known as a deep cleaning, this is the most common treatment for mild to moderate gum disease. Your dentist will need to remove bacteria and compromised tissue before placing any restorations.
- Bone or gum grafting: We may refer you to an oral surgeon who can restore lost tissue. Grafting procedures can also restore your candidacy for dental implants.
- Fillings: Tooth-colored fillings can strengthen and seal decayed teeth. At the same time, they will blend in with your smile. Composite fillings also offer practical advantages for your oral health.
- Dental crowns: A crown is a larger restoration designed to strengthen a severely decayed or weakened tooth. We will carefully design the “cap” to match your tooth’s natural shape and color.
- Inlays and onlays: Inlays and onlays are similar to dental crowns, but are typically placed on the back molars to help prevent further decay from compromising the structure of the tooth. We will typically recommend this type of restoration if your cavity is too big for a routine filling.
- Root canal treatment: If you are suffering from a dental infection, we will include a root canal in your treatment. During this therapy, we will eliminate diseased tissue and restore your tooth with a crown.
- Dental bridges: A dental bridge can replace one to three missing teeth. Like a crown, it will fit over your natural teeth, and the lab will craft it from state-of-the-art materials.
- Dentures: We offer traditional full and partial dentures as well as implant-supported prosthetics. These restorations can replace all or a large portion of your teeth.
- Implant-supported restorations: We do not place dental implants; however, we can refer you to and collaborate with a trusted oral surgeon. Then we can attach a permanent, stable, and highly realistic restoration.
Once we have restored your dental health and oral function, we can provide any desired cosmetic care. We offer a wide selection of procedures including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, two of the most popular options after full mouth reconstruction.
