What to Expect From a Full Mouth Reconstruction
There are a variety of different issues that can affect your mouth and the amount of work that it will take to give you a smile that you have always wanted. One of the first steps that you should take for a full mouth reconstruction is scheduling an appointment with our office. We can give you a complete evaluation that will help you understand exactly what procedures you will need to get your perfect smile.
At Dr. Sam’s Premier Dentistry, we put our patients first by ensuring that we keep our staff up to date with the latest knowledge and technology available. That means that you won’t get better service anywhere else, and you can rest assured that we can provide you with the right procedure for you.
Understanding the Process
During an initial evaluation, we want to hear about your expectations too. This can help to inform our staff of specific areas that you may want to focus on. Once we have talked to you, reviewed your patient and family history, and conducted your exam, we can work up a customized plan for you. Every time that we conduct a full mouth reconstruction, it is uniquely tailored to each patient. Every patient has different needs and requirements to complete the process.
What Procedures are Used for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction can use a variety of different approaches. There are a number of techniques that we can use. Some are straightforward and simple procedures, while others may require surgery or months to complete. Most patients want some level of tooth whitening to be included. Professional tooth whitening is a simple, in-office procedure that is done in under an hour. Our professional formula can also have much better results than products that you can purchase for use at home.
Many patients also would like to straighten or correct gaps in their teeth. There are a variety of different options that can help correct these issues. One of our most popular options is the use of Invisalign. This system utilizes a number of customized aligners that are designed to straighten your smile gradually. The process can be completed in as little as six months, but often takes around 18 months to complete. Straightening your teeth not only improves the appearance of your smile but also helps to keep your mouth clean by eliminating areas that bacteria and plaque can hide.
There are a variety of other options that can be used for our patients. Some people may require simple fillings, or need a root canal with a dental crown. Veneers, inlays, and onlays are other options that are commonly used to help create a better smile.
Gum disease is an increasingly common issue that we see in our patients. There are a series of different treatment options that we can use to help you improve your overall oral health and improve the appearance of your smile. Some of our patients may feel that their smile is “gummy,” meaning that the gums have covered too much of the tooth. There are a number of different procedures that we can use to help bring the gums back down to their proper orientation and improve the appearance of your smile.
Gums that have receded too far down the tooth can also create issues with the appearance of your smile. This can expose the vulnerable root of the tooth to infection. Deep cleanings can help remove any buildup in these areas and allow the gums to attach to the tooth again naturally.
If you are considering necessary dental work that can also improve the appearance of your smile, call Dr. Sam’s Premier Dentistry in Sherman, TX today. We can work with you to develop a treatment plan that will achieve the results that you want.
