Severely Worn or Broken Teeth
There are several reasons why you, as a patient, could benefit from a full mouth reconstruction. The biggest reason you may need this service is because, your teeth are worn, broken or your bite has collapse. Maybe you were in an accident that caused damage to your teeth. Maybe decay or gum disease have caused you to lose teeth. Maybe inadequate early dental care has left your teeth in poor and severely worn condition.
Lately, we have noticed a lot of new patients coming in for evaluations with these issues. These patients are frustrated at their unsuccessful attempts to restore individual teeth. We asked Dr. Singh to comment about why severely worn or broken teeth and collapsing bite are an issue:
What Is Involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction typically combines a number of techniques to rebuild your bite and individual teeth, improve their functionality, and restore the esthetics of your smile. Some of the techniques we often use include:
- Removing hopeless or severely infected teeth
- Reestablishing your natural bite
- Dental implants
- Porcelain crowns
- Partials or dentures
- Braces, such as Six Month Smiles
The process is different for every patient. The first step is to call for a consultation with Dr. Singh to discuss your goals and find out which steps would be right for you. We will work together with you and provide advice about which steps should be prioritized. Restoring functionality is a top priority, especially when missing teeth are involved since missing teeth can start a chain of ongoing damage and deterioration in your gum and bone tissue.
What’s Holding You Back?
Many patients who come to us for a full mouth reconstruction have put off caring for their teeth for one of three reasons:
- Concern about the time involved
- Worry about how much it will cost
- Fear of the dentist
At Apollonia Dental, we take your concerns seriously. We are proud to offer solutions to all three of these worries.
While a full mouth reconstruction can take a while to complete, we will break the process down into individual treatments. Extended office hours are available to make sure you can get the care you need at a time that’s convenient for you.
The investment in a full mouth restoration can be significant. Costs can range from a few thousand dolars to the cost of a premier luxury car for complex implant reconstructions. However, unlike a car, you will constantly feel the benefit of a new bite and smile with an improved appearance and a better ability to eat. The cost of your case will vary based on your goals and expectations.
If you are motivated to get treatment and restore you bite and smile, please talk to us about our financing options. We have a range of plans available to help you get the care you need – even when you are on a budget. Some of the procedures performed in a full mouth reconstruction may be partially covered by dental and/or medical insurance since they restore the functionality of your teeth. An investment in a full mouth restoration can improve your ability to chew and smile and can have an extremely positive impact on your life!
It’s been estimated that approximately 1 in 7 Americans are not getting regular preventive dental care because of dental fear and anxiety. Unfortunately, this may mean that by the time they finally see a dentist, they are in pain and coping with extensive decay and gum disease. We want to change this.
Apollonia Dental offers sedation dentistry options to calm your fear, reduce your anxiety, and make dental appointments a relaxing and comfortable experience. If dental fears are preventing you from getting the care you need, please give us a call so we can work with you to create a treatment plan that includes sedation options.
