For Full Mouth Reconstruction, Gowanus Residents Trust Dr. Sapienza
To rebuild your smile with full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Sapienza will create a treatment plan. This plan essentially becomes the blueprint for how your smile transformation will happen. Chances are your transformation will necessarily combine general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments. The secret to success is the step-by-step process by which your full mouth reconstruction will happen. You may need full mouth reconstruction to:
- Replace missing teeth that have been lost due to severe decay, traumatic injury or periodontal disease
- Repair teeth that have been chipped, severely cracked or fractured
- Rebuild teeth that are extensively worn because of teeth grinding and clenching or acid reflux
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Adjust a bite (occlusion) that is causing jaw or headache pain
At a scheduled consultation with Dr. Sapienza, he will thoroughly examine your mouth in order to determine the problems you have and what treatments are required. Then, he will plan your reconstruction in an orderly fashion that not only allows one treatment to build on the one prior, but also considers your budget and time constraints.
Full Mouth Reconstruction 11205 Can Depend On
Your full mouth reconstruction may begin with any number of restorative procedures. For example, decaying teeth that have cavities may need repair with white fillings or ceramic inlays and onlays. These restorations are not only designed to repair cavities, but also to blend in with the natural color of a tooth. The result is a restored tooth that shows no visible signs of rehabilitation. More severely damaged teeth may require porcelain crowns. Also called a dental cap, a crown completely covers a tooth in order to restore form and function.
For missing teeth, Dr. Sapienza may recommend a number of tooth replacements:
- Dental implants can replace a tooth from root to crown. With these, Dr. Sapienza inserts a small biocompatible post in your jawbone beneath the open socket of a missing tooth. Once healed, this post becomes a firm setting to which we’ll attach a lifelike tooth restoration, most likely a porcelain crown.
- Dentures and partials are oral prosthetics that Dr. Sapienza designs to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial will fit between or among your remaining teeth much like a puzzle piece. Teeth are attached to a gum-colored base that is held in place by brackets or clips. A full denture rests comfortably on your gums in order to replace all of the teeth on your upper or lower arch.
Last but not least, we may use a combination of cosmetic treatments to provide the finishing touch to your smile. These can include porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding or teeth whitening.
