Dental Trauma

When an unfortunate circumstance results in severe damage or even loss of a tooth, it’s important to visit your dentist immediately. Acting quickly enough in some instances may even save that tooth.

While you should absolutely visit the emergency room in the event of a serious or life-threatening emergency, they will only be able to temporarily assist with any dental issues – not fix them in the same way a dentist can. That’s why we suggest you visit us as soon as possible. 

A variety of ways to save or replace a tooth exist, such as dental implants, dental bonding, dental crowns, dental veneers, dental bridges, and more – all of which can restore a tooth’s functionality and look.

Dental Infection

Extreme tooth decay can lead to tooth loss, gum disease, or even more overall health issues. Infection can be treated if caught promptly – which is why both good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are extremely important. 

In some instances, a root canal may be performed to treat teeth that have become infected. This involves removing infected pulp directly from a tooth, and sealing the inside with a dental filling. In other cases, especially where there is extreme, untreatable decay, an extraction and/or dental implant may be suggested.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Long-Term Wear

Over time, our teeth wear down due to our daily routines. Not keeping up with good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing can and will cause this issue to progress more rapidly. Other factors, such as a high sugar or acid diet, or excessive grinding, also play a role. 

While your regular visits are important in maintaining your long-term oral health, we’re proud to provide full mouth reconstructions for those who particularly need a new lease on their smile. 

Reconstruction methods

Each patient deserves a smile they can be proud of, and that’s exactly what we aim to provide. A full reconstruction may involve any or all of the following procedures:

  •       Dental implants
  •       Dental crowns
  •       Dental veneers
  •       Dental bridges
  •       Dentures
  •       Root canal

The difference between a full reconstruction over more aesthetic treatments is simple – the former is a necessity, while the latter is often a choice. 

While a full mouth reconstruction may sound expensive, we’re proud to offer several payment options and work with your insurance to make the service more manageable. But in the end, the longer you wait the more painful and severe your issues become – and so too does treatment become more expensive. 

A full mouth reconstruction takes several visits to achieve optimal results and address different needs throughout the mouth. But the end result is worth the time and effort – a truly beautiful and functional smile.
