If you’ve lost one or more teeth, have remaining teeth that suffer from malocclusion (misalignment), and exhibit problems with your periodontal health, then you may be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Everett and Dr. Morgan will consult with your general dentist and other oral health specialists to devise a custom rehabilitation plan that will address your various oral health issues with minimal, conservative treatments.
Designing Your Full Mouth RehabilitationReestablishing Periodontal Health
To support and protect your teeth, restoring your periodontal health is one of the most important building blocks of full mouth rehabilitation. If you exhibit signs of periodontal disease, or if you’ve already suffered tissue, bone, and/or tooth loss from the condition, then Dr. Everett and Dr. Morgan may recommend periodontal treatment as the first step.Realigning Crooked Teeth
If one, several, or all of your teeth are crooked (a condition known as malocclusion), then orthodontic treatment will likely be a part of your full mouth rehabilitation plan. If an impacted canine, or severely crooked tooth interferes with orthodontic treatment, Dr. Everett and Dr. Morgan may extract the tooth before your braces are bonded in place.Replacing Lost Teeth
Whether you lost a tooth to periodontal disease or dental trauma, or you’ve had a tooth extracted because it could not be restored, tooth replacement is necessary to restore your bite function. The right procedure can also help prevent future tooth loss, such as dental implants that replace the root and provide the stimulation needed to keep the alveolar bone strong and healthy.Current Dentures?
If the mobility of your lower denture is problematic for you or a loved one, Dr. Everett and Dr. Morgan may recommend several implants to help anchor the lower denture to the lower jaw. Ideally, four implants are placed for stability on the lower jaw, but many times, two implants can provide adequate retention. Since the bone of the upper jaw tends to be less dense, more than two implants are often needed for proper retention.
Every case is unique and only after a comprehensive exam with radiographs can Dr. Everett and Dr. Morgan custom-tailor a treatment plan to your needs and desires.Tired of Having to Remove Your Dentures Daily?
