Full Mouth Restoration


What is full mouth restoration?

Full mouth restoration involves reconstructing all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws through the use of restorative materials like crowns, bridges, veneers and dentures. Full mouth reconstruction can be a necessary treatment to preserve the patient’s oral health.

 


Candidates for Full Mouth Restoration

Patients can receive this treatment if they have missing teeth or severe damage due to:

  • Decay
  • Injury or fracture
  • Acid erosion
  • Tooth grinding
  • Malocclusion

Missing teeth often lead to serious dental problems and can significantly inhibit a patient’s ability to eat and speak. It is important to seek restorative treatment for any missing teeth, but especially when most or all of your teeth have damage.


Full Mouth Restoration Options

There are many different treatment options available for patients requiring reconstruction. Full mouth restoration is a complicated procedure that involves multiple office visits and can take up to a year or longer to complete, depending on each patient’s individual case. To help regain a healthy smile Prosthodontics of New York will create a custom treatment plan for each individual patient.

There is a wide variety of prosthetic materials that our staff can use to replace missing teeth or those with damage. These materials may be permanently implanted or glued to the mouth or can be removable and temporary. They may replace individual teeth, a few teeth or all of the teeth. Some of these options may include:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Dentures
  • Implants

Crowns

Dental crowns are individual prosthetic teeth used to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Prosthodontics of New York implant crowns into the jawbone with a titanium implant root or place implants with cement as a cap over an existing tooth. The actual crown can be metal, porcelain or a combination of the two and provide a natural looking and feeling replacement. Crowns provide a strong, sturdy, aesthetically pleasing replacement that can withstand the same pressures as a regular tooth, letting patients enjoy the convenience of eating, speaking and smiling without any problems.


Bridges

Dental bridges replace missing teeth with a short row of prosthetics that rely on the strength of surrounding teeth and help stabilize the bite. Bridges also help keep surrounding teeth from moving into the open space of the missing tooth. First, our staff prepares the surrounding teeth, then they attach the bridge to the teeth. Bridges can be permanent or removable and provide a restored function and appearance.

Veneers

Veneers are shells made from composite or porcelain that fit over the natural teeth to provide a white, even, full smile and can cover up crooked, chipped or discolored teeth. After we buff the tooth in preparation, we use an etching solution and special light to allow the veneer to then bond to your teeth. Veneers typically last for 10 to 15 years and are more durable and less expensive than other materials. Veneers are a cosmetic enhancement and cannot replace missing teeth.

Dentures

Dentures are for people who have lost many or all of their teeth and are usually used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Depending on each patient’s needs and preferences dentures can be removable or fixed, and partial or full. Patients can treat dentures just like natural teeth but require special care and adjustment when they are removable.

Implants

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are drilled into the jaw bone to replace missing teeth. The implant serves as the root of a replacement tooth so the patient can receive a crown, bridge or dentures. This provides a natural-looking replacement for the missing tooth. First, our staff will place the implant into the jaw and then allow it to fuse with the bone before placing the prosthetic on top. Implants provide long-lasting support that most closely replaces the individual strength and stability of the natural teeth.
