If you are missing teeth or have severely damaged teeth, your oral functions drastically diminish. With teeth vital for maintaining proper dietary requirements, oral functions, and quality of life, full mouth reconstruction is needed to replace or fix damaged natural teeth. As a cosmetic dentist in Pomona, we provide full mouth reconstruction to regain oral and overall heath with a new, beautiful smile.
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is a rehabilitation of the mouth to restore oral functions. Essentially, it involves specific dental procedures that are needed to rebuild or restore all of the teeth on the upper and lower jaws. The process to restore the mouth often involves a variety of dental specialties, such as general, restorative, and cosmetic dentists. In some cases, oral surgeons, periodontists, and even orthodontists may be needed.
While there are various reasons for needing full mouth rehabilitation, the most common reasons are due to tooth loss from decay or trauma, severely injured or fractured teeth, or teeth that are significantly worn from acid erosion or tooth grinding.
Services for Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction can include the use of several procedures. Your dentist in Pomona will perform an extensive examination to determine the extent of your problem to establish appropriate treatment options. The options used will enhance the health and function of your teeth, while also ensuring the gums are healthy. The occlusion, temporomandibular joints, and jaw muscles will also be evaluated to determine how the bite relates to your oral health. The treatments used will coincide with esthetics to ensure the correct color, shape, size and proportion of your teeth.
Dental Crowns—Dental crowns are used to restore the health and function of damaged teeth, while also aiding with the correct size of a tooth. Often, crowns are used in combination with dental bridges to replace a missing tooth. This is a simple process that requires little time to complete.
Dental veneers—Dental veneers, such as porcelain veneers in Pomona, are used to hide cosmetic flaws while also giving the teeth a shapelier and proportionate appearance. Receiving veneers only requires two appointments to achieve drastic results.
Dental Implants—Dental implants in Pomona are a popular option to permanently replace missing teeth. Using a surgical procedure, dental implants are implanted into the jawbone to hold prosthetic dental crowns in place. Depending on the severity of tooth loss, this process can take several months.
Dental Bridges—Dental bridges bridge the gap between missing teeth. Often used in combination with crowns to anchor the bridge in place, the procedure in fairly noninvasive for treating tooth loss.
Periodontal Care— If the gums have been damaged by gum disease, periodontal therapy is used to enhance the health and function of the gums. In some cases, gum countering is used to store the gum line to protect the teeth roots.
