Ideal candidates for Dental Restoration
Dr. Nancy Gill and Dr. Dallas Kenson may perform this procedure on patients who have missing or severely damaged teeth caused by:
- Injury or fracture
- Acid erosion
- Tooth grinding
Missing teeth can cause difficulty eating and speaking and may even lead to more serious dental problems. It is important to seek restorative treatment for any missing teeth, but especially when most or all of the teeth are damaged or lost.
Full Mouth Restoration Options
Full Mouth Reconstruction involves multiple different treatment options, from veneers or crowns to implants or dentures. Multiple treatments may be combined to complete a full mouth restoration depending on your individual needs. Dr. Nancy Gill and Dr. Dallas Kenson will review your options and choose the best treatment plan that helps you achieve your desired results as well as restore your oral health. Depending on your needs, they may replace individual teeth, a few teeth or all of the teeth. Some of your restorative options include:
Before Crown Placement
After Crown Placement
Dental bridges replace missing teeth with a short row of prosthetics that rely on the strength of surrounding teeth and help stabilize the bite. Bridges also help keep surrounding teeth from moving into the open space of the missing tooth. The surrounding teeth are prepared for the bridge, which is then attached to the teeth. Bridges can be permanent or removable and provide a restored function and appearance.
Dentures are for people who have lost many or all of their teeth and usually replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures can be removable or fixed, and partial or full. Dr. Nancy Gill or Dr. Dallas Kenson will choose the best type of denture depending on each patient’s needs and preferences. Dentures can be treated just like natural teeth but require special care and adjustment when they are removable.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are drilled into the jaw bone to replace missing teeth. At our practice, we use full-arch implants which replace multiple teeth in a row. They can be covered by a crown, bridge or dentures to provide a natural-looking replacement for the missing teeth. The full-arch implant is first placed into the jaw and then allowed to fuse with the bone before the prosthetic is placed on top. Full-arch implants provide long-lasting support that most closely replaces the individual strength and stability of the natural teeth.
What to expect From Restorative Dentistry
Full mouth restoration is a complicated procedure that involves multiple office visits and can take up to a year or longer to complete, depending on each patient’s individual case. Dr. Nancy Gill & Dr. Dallas Kenson will develop a customized treatment plan for each individual patient to help regain a healthy smile.
