Perhaps because of disease or an accident, your bite has significantly changed. You may even have lost some teeth. A complete reconstruction will help get your smile back to a level of ideal health and beauty.
It will take more specialists than your dentist alone to help you reach your oral health goals. Here are some of the individuals you might end up working with.
For tooth extractions and surgical reconstruction, you will probably be referred to a qualified surgeon. Surgeons specialize in these procedures and are prepared to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
An endodontist treats teeth from the inside. Nerve problems and root canals are a couple areas that fall under the expertise of an endodontist. This treatment is critical for treating and preventing dental abscesses.
Getting your teeth back into proper alignment is essential to having a healthy smile. Orthodontic care will make sure your bite is properly adjusted, too. An orthodontist will work out with you a treatment plan that suits both your dental needs and your lifestyle.
Your gums cannot be overlooked in reconstructing your smile. If you’ve had damage to gum tissue because of trauma or gum disease, then a periodontist will help get you back on track. A periodontist will provide services such as gum grafts and deep root cleanings. Healthy gums provide a solid foundation for healthy teeth!
Primary Dental Care Provider
The finishing touches such as crowns, bridges, and cosmetic treatment will probably be available right there in your main dental office. Restorative work usually comes last after all other major dental problems are addressed.
A full-mouth reconstruction can be an exciting project! Call your dentist for more information on beginning your journey to a new smile.
