At Brown and Baran Family Dentistry, Seaford and Wilmington restorative dentists, Dr. Paul E. Brown and Dr. Christopher S. Baran are committed to providing exceptional full-mouth reconstruction treatments.
Our cutting-edge technology enables us to combine various restorative procedures, resulting in significantly improved oral health and a rejuvenated, more youthful smile. This comprehensive approach effectively addresses concerns like fractured or missing teeth, periodontal disease, and more.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction is designed to address your specific needs, including current oral health concerns, cosmetic goals, and budget. Note that full mouth reconstruction and smile makeovers are different. Though both will combine various treatments in a multi-stage process, smile makeovers are primarily intended to enhance the aesthetics of your smile.
In contrast, while full mouth reconstruction will also improve your appearance, its primary purpose is restorative. Your dentist will choose treatments to repair dental damage and renew oral function.
Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
If you’re struggling with any of the following issues, you’re likely a candidate for full mouth reconstruction:
- Numerous missing teeth
- Multiple weakened or cracked teeth
- Widespread decay
- Tooth erosion
- Jawbone recession
What Is Involved in the Reconstruction Process?
The first step towards full mouth reconstruction is a thorough dental examination conducted by our experienced dentists, Dr. Brown and Dr. Baran. During this evaluation, they will carefully assess your dental health, identify existing issues and concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This comprehensive approach ensures that all aspects of your oral health are considered for an effective full mouth reconstruction.
Full mouth reconstruction encompasses a range of procedures that can be performed in different stages. Driven by state-of-the-art technology, your dentist will skillfully combine multiple restorative procedures to achieve remarkable improvements in your oral health and help you attain a brighter, more youthful-looking smile.
In many cases, you have the flexibility to address your most pressing concerns, such as missing teeth, as a priority. Moreover, there are often various treatment options available for each specific issue. Your practitioner will carefully design a full mouth reconstruction plan that aligns with your budget and fulfills your health goals.
Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatment Options
Full mouth reconstruction may involve a variety of procedures, including:
Dental crowns are an integral part of full mouth reconstruction, as they help restore damaged or weakened teeth. Through a precise and minimally invasive procedure, our skilled dentists will place your custom dental crowns, protecting and enhancing the strength and appearance of your teeth. Oftentimes, Dr. Brown and Dr. Baran can provide same-day crowns thanks to our latest technology.
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental bridges can effectively bridge the gap and restore your smile. Dental bridges are composed of two crowns which are placed over teeth on either side of the gap, and restorations called pontics to replace the missing teeth in between. We’ll carefully place the dental bridge, ensuring a comfortable fit and seamless integration with your natural teeth.
For patients missing a significant number of teeth, dentures offer an excellent solution. Dr. Brown and Dr. Baran can create custom-fit dentures that not only restore your ability to chew and speak properly but also provide a natural-looking smile. They will take meticulous measurements and impressions to fabricate dentures that fit comfortably and enhance your facial aesthetics. Our dental team will also provide guidance on the maintenance and care of your dentures for long-term satisfaction.
For restorations that combine both realistic appearance and secure fit, our recommendation is dental implants. These innovative treatments involve surgically placing titanium implant posts into your jaw, effectively replacing tooth roots. Dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures. In many cases, we can even offer Same-Day Dental Restoration® options, allowing you to restore your smile in a single appointment.
In cases where the jawbone lacks sufficient density or volume to support dental implants, bone grafting may be necessary. If you have suffered bone recession as a result of tooth loss, your dentist can replace the tissue during bone grafting surgery. During the procedure, we’ll strategically place the bone material to stimulate new bone growth and create a stable foundation for dental implants.
