Replacing missing teeth and adding bone through grafting restores underlying facial structure. Furthermore, it prevents that “sunk-in” look that ensues when teeth are missing and the jawbone recedes.
What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction (sometimes called full mouth restoration) is a term which refers to a combination of dental procedures that restore a smile for people with numerous damaged or missing teeth. Treatment may include any combination of the following procedures: crowns, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, white filling replacement, tooth implants, porcelain veneers, implant-anchored dentures, gum contouring, soft tissue grafts, bone grafts, and teeth whitening.
Options for Patients Suffering from Tooth Pain in Arlington
Dental implants are usually the best tooth replacement for Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry patients with missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. If there is not enough bone to anchor an implant, bone grafting may be completed to augment existing bone. The post integrates with the bone to provide a secure foundation for the abutment and beautiful crown. Dental implants are indistinguishable from previous teeth in both form and function.
If you currently have dentures, speak with us about implant-anchored full or partial dentures. Significant improvements can be made even if you only get two or three tooth implants.
Crowns (sometimes called caps) are used when there is enough viable tooth structure that the tooth doesn’t need to be extracted. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured. A crown can fix a bite misalignment and is usually required after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.
