You look in the mirror and you don’t even see your smile anymore, you just see a series of problems. You haven’t been to the dentist for a long time, and it shows. As the days and weeks pass, you get more and more nervous about going in, afraid they will tell you that nothing can be done. Fortunately, even the most damaged smiles can be fully restored thanks to a full-mouth reconstruction. How is this possible? Your dentist in Easton, PA, Dr. Jeffrey DeMartino can explain.
What Is A Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
If someone hasn’t been to the dentist in years, or has suffered a traumatic injury, their dental issues often cannot be resolved with just one treatment. It is probably going to take an array of procedures working in perfect harmony to give them back a smile that is both functional and beautiful. This is what constitutes a full-mouth reconstruction in Easton, PA. It utilizes all the tools and techniques of dentistry to help the smiles that need it the most. Each reconstruction is different depending on the patient, but they all follow the same basic flow.
How Does It Work?
It all has to start with a plan, and in order to put one together, I or Dr. Garcia-DeMartino will give your teeth, mouth, gums, and jaw a thorough examination. We need to have a full grasp of their current condition before we can figure out what needs to be done. Our team will then take a series of digital scans and x-rays to help us create a model of your mouth. This will help us determine which treatments to use, as well as the order they will be performed.
Firstly, the functionality of your teeth and jaw must be restored. Broken and missing teeth can be repaired and replaced using dental crowns and bridges. If you have a healthy amount of jawbone, dental implants can restore your missing teeth while providing it essential support from the inside. These treatments will not only give you your teeth back, but also help realign your bite.
The appearance of your smile is our next concern. We offer a variety of cosmetic services that can improve everything about your teeth: shape, size, color, alignment, and spacing. A complete smile needs to be aesthetically pleasing as well. Restoring your smile means restoring your confidence, and we go the extra mile to make sure that happens.
From beginning to end, a full-mouth reconstruction usually takes multiple visits spread out over the course of a few weeks. If dental implants have been used, a few months will be allowed for healing time. The key is to make sure each treatment harmoniously fits with the others, so a deliberate approach will give you the best, long-lasting results. Afterward, you simply need to brush and floss your teeth every day, as well as get regular check-ups and cleanings to maintain your new smile.
Your smile doesn’t need to be in the past anymore; it can be in your future as well. With the right plan and time, we can give you a smile to be proud of again.
