Dealing with any level of dental impairment, discomfort, or aesthetic issues can be quite discouraging and bothersome in. These can include seriously harmed teeth, missing teeth, misalignment of the teeth, overbites, or jaw disorders such as temporomandibular jaw (TMJ) disorder. As such, you may be very interested in finding out the best solution to remedy any of these issues you may be experiencing. Dental restoration can bring back a renewed sense of self-confidence, beauty, and functionality. Fortunately, a dentist in Saratoga Springs, UT can guide you to the best restorative option for you, as there are several to choose from, including a full mouth dental reconstruction with dental implants.
What Does A Full Mouth Restoration Entail?
Full mouth reconstruction is highly complex and can be applied via several different methods and procedures, including tooth extractions, occlusal adjustment, scaling and root planing, dental implants, and full or partial dentures.
Some of these procedures associated with Full Mouth Reconstructions are:
While it is always best to save dental tissue, sometimes the only solution is to remove a badly decayed, infected, cracked, or failing tooth and replace it with a bridge or dental implant. Sedation dentistry may also be offered to ensure your comfort during this procedure and other full mouth reconstruction treatments. Depending on the location of the tooth that needs to be extracted and your anxiety level, you can choose between nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV moderate sedation.
Scaling And Root Planing
If you have gum disease, this is treated first before initiating any type of restoration procedure. This non-surgical treatment involves a two-part deep cleaning. Scaling removes all the plaque and tartar above and below your gum line, down to the bottom of the gum pocket. During root planing, plaque, tartar buildup, and bacteria are removed from the roots of your teeth, smoothing any rough surfaces.
Dental implants permanently replace one or more missing teeth. The titanium post is surgically placed in your jawbone and functions like a natural tooth root. After the post fuses with your jawbone, a customized restoration (tooth crown) is attached to the post with an abutment. Dental implants restore 99% of normal function, beautify smiles, and improve oral health and confidence.
