TREATMENTS INVOLVED IN A FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
When a person has a dental reconstruction, the dentist will evaluate the teeth, gums, and jaw. They will then see which procedures are needed to correct the problems. Your dentist will recommend the following procedures. Not all patients need every treatment. The necessary treatments depend on the patient’s condition.
Tooth filling and root canal: If you have tooth decay to one or more teeth, it causes a cavity. In order to save the tooth, the cavity would need to be filled. If the decay of the tooth is very extensive, a root canal may be necessary.
Mouth guard or night guard: If you tend to grind your teeth while sleeping, you dentist will recommend a night guard to prevent further damaging your teeth.
Veneers: Veneers are very thin caps, which are permanently affixed over your existing teeth to make them look more attractive. When you have veneers, you need to keep them forever. This is because the dentist will file your teeth down so that the veneers fit perfectly, and your teeth do not look too large when the veneers are placed.
Dental crown: A dental crown is placed on a tooth which is chipped. They are also used on the tooth following a root canal.
Dental implants: Dental implants are a great way to replace a missing tooth. They are very convenient, as they are attached into the root and never need to be removed. Dental implants are filed and colored to match your existing teeth.
Teeth whitening: Caffeine, wine, and cigarette smoking are just a few of the many things which can cause your teeth to become discolored. To fix this problem, and make your smile white again, the dentist will whiten your teeth.
Dental braces: Dental braces are used if you have an overbite, underbite, or if you have gaps between your teeth.
Scaling and root planing: Over time, dental plaque can get beneath the gum line, forming pockets between the teeth and gums. This can cause gum disease. Over time, dental calculus fills the pockets and your gums, and needs to be removed. Once the calculus has been removed, the area is scraped. When the area is scraped, it leaves a jagged appearance. This is when planing is done. Planing is done to smooth the tooth’s root.
Dental bonding: Dental bonding is used to repair chipped, broken, or discolored teeth.
