Manhattan, New York City
When you have a dental problem, you can surely count on your dentist to address it in an effective manner. But what if you suffer from several dental problems at once? Life isn't always so neat, so the chances are likely that this is bound to happen. Never fear, though. When you meet with a skilled Manhattan cosmetic dentist, you can have all of your dental health problems addressed in an efficient and effective way thanks to a full mouth reconstruction. Since there are many misconceptions about full mouth reconstructions and what they involve, we'd like to look at them in basic terms right now.
What is a full mouth reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction refers to a combination of multiple dental care treatments performed in order to improve the overall dental health of a patient. The treatments are done deliberately so that the most pressing dental health issues are addressed first.
How is a full mouth reconstruction different from a smile makeover?
Full mouth reconstructions and smile makeovers are somewhat similar, but with full mouth reconstructions, there is a greater emphasis on dental health. With smile makeovers, the emphasis tends to be more on aesthetics. In any case, a healthy smile looks great as well, which is why dental aesthetics are considered alongside dental health.
Fixing Minor to Severe Tooth Decay and Tooth Damage
Tooth decay and tooth damage are two of the most common dental problems that people need addressed. There are different degrees of treatment to meet patient needs. For minor tooth decay, there are dental fillings. More serious problems with tooth decay and damage can be fixed using inlays, onlays, and dental crowns.
How We Address Problems Related to Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can result in many major dental health problems, and we have many options for filling gaps left behind as a result of tooth loss. Dental bridges and dentures are the most commonly known treatments for this dental health issue, though they can both be anchored in place by Manhattan dental implants (surgically placed artificial tooth roots) for the best possible hold.
Restoring the Health and Appearance of Your Gums
The gums should never be taken for granted when it comes to dental health, which is why full mouth reconstructions also account for problems with gum disease and gum recession. Grafting and augmentation of the soft tissues in your mouth may be key for lasting dental health.
Solutions for Other Dental Health Concerns
Whether it's problems with the teeth, issues with the structures of the jaw, or severe dry mouth, our New York City cosmetic and restorative dentistry team will help you address these issues in order for you to achieve optimal dental health.
