Full Mouth Restoration
Full mouth restoration entails repairs to the functional structures of the mouth; functions that are responsible for chewing, speaking and maintaining a relaxed and aligned bite. Dr. Hetal Amin-Patel develops treatment plans for individuals that wish to rehabilitate teeth and gums to a functional and aesthetically pleasing state.
Restorative dentistry addresses problems including broken, chipped, cracked, or missing teeth and infected teeth or gums.
Common Components of Full Mouth Restoration
Dental implants are an effective solution if you are missing a tooth. Dental implants are permanently secured into your jawbone and affixed with a replacement tooth, such as a dental crown. Implants are secure and aesthetically pleasing and they prevent painful shifting in your mouth.
Dental crowns are used for severely damaged or decayed tooth. A dental crown provides a protective cover to strengthen your tooth and reinforce your jaw.
Dental bridges are used when there are one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge works by “bridging” the space created by missing teeth. It anchors to two crowns that are placed on the teeth to either side of your empty space.
Full Dentures and Partial Dentures
Dentures are ideal when multiple teeth are missing. Dentures from Beautiful Dentistry are now more comfortable than ever before, dentures have advanced in recent years and look more like your natural teeth than models in years’ past.
If the root or pulp of your tooth is damaged and becomes infected, it can cause severe pain and ultimately lead to tooth loss. Endodontic or root canal therapy works by removing the infected tissue and pulp inside your tooth, and the sealing your tooth in order to save it. In many cases, a badly decayed tooth can be saved with a root canal and a protective dental crown.
Gum disease is characterized by swollen, tender, or bleeding gums. Periodontal Disease is serious, and is responsible for adverse health impacts beyond the mild symptoms it may cause in your mouth. Periodontal Disease is now linked to Cardiovascular Disease, and could require surgical treatment if left unchecked.
