It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally there is such damage within one’s mouth that multiple dental procedures are required.
It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally there is such damage within one’s mouth that multiple dental procedures are required. Perhaps you have been remiss in regular dental care for quite some time, or maybe a traumatic event has deemed an entire reconstruction of the mouth necessary.
Regardless of the reason, reconstructive surgery is an incredibly intensive surgery that demands the highest levels of expertise.
Dr. Huynh and his experienced team at Eastport Dental have been the leading provider for dental reconstruction surgery in Mesa, Arizona with their phenomenal skill, careful attention to detail, and a gentle, experienced, and steady hand.
It truly is a two-part process – there is the removal, and there is the redesign. It is a kind of restorative dentistry that is far from just cosmetic, although there is no denying the visual beauty of a perfectly designed smile.
A healthy mouth also promotes better health!
Patients are finally able to enjoy solids again. Chewing is not a problem, and the bite is corrected, providing immeasurable relief to the jaw bones and muscles.
Full mouth reconstruction is, quite literally, a lifesaving technology, and it is one that we have perfected here at Eastport Dental.
Candidates for this rigorous treatment often suffer from the following ailments:
- Multiple missing teeth
- Several fillings that have become broken, damaged, or ineffective
- Extreme trauma
- Advanced disease and decay
- Teeth that are terribly worn down from bruxism, or grinding
- Acid erosion from long-term exposure to foods and beverages high in acidity, or acid reflux
- Jaw, muscle, and head pain from an improper bite
As the American College of Prosthodontists notes, Ectodermal Dysplasia, Dentinogenisis, and Ameliogenesis are all chronic health conditions that routinely attack the mouth and often demand an entire reconstruction of the patient’s mouth at one point in time or another.
A notable, and often attractive, highlight of this surgery is its finality – unlike other options, this is a permanent fix that offers patients an entirely new start on their whole dental health.
This treatment utilizes a unique combination of dental technologies such as dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, and/or dentures, completely customized to each patient in order to create the perfect personalized fit.
Dr. Huynh was schedule you for an in-depth consultation in our Mesa, Arizona office so that we can become better acquainted with your dental goals and preferences.
Given the scale of the procedure, we hand pick an experienced team of dental professionals who will advise and collaborate on the entire process to ensure you have the best team surrounding you at all times.
Based on your case, you may benefit from the expertise of the following professionals:
- Periodontists, specializing in the gums
- Orthodontists, specializing in tooth placement
- Endodontists, specializing in tooth pain and root canals
- Oral surgeons, handling a variety of intricate surgical procedures to include full reconstruction
We begin with a thorough examination at our Mesa, Arizona offices. We will need to document the ins and outs of your mouth, using photography, X-rays, and dental impressions to record the details of your existing teeth, gums, and bite.
Dr. Huynh will pay particular attention to a few areas:
- the teeth, which may require veneers or same day crowns;
- the gums, which may show signs of advanced periodontal disease and require scaling or grafts;
- the joints and jaw, which can be severely impacted by a poor bite, or occlusion.
Occlusion is particularly important to the mouth, often taking precedence over other dental procedures. A poor bite can not only cause extreme pain, but it can also significantly hasten decay and damage of the teeth. Depending on your particular case, Dr. Huynh may recommend orthodontics to treat the bite before moving forward with any other reconstructive procedures.
Together, we will create a custom treatment plan for your mouth. This step-by-step process will detail all of the current damages, as well as the steps and procedures to fix each one. The entire process can take up to a year or more depending on the severity of the case.
Popular procedures for full mouth reconstruction can include any of the following:
- Periodontal care and prophylactic teeth cleaning
- Crown adjustment
- Orthognathic surgery for the jaw
- Contouring gum tissue
- Orthodontics to fix tooth placement
- Bone and/or tissue grafting
Of course, if you are going to have something as intensive as reconstructive surgery, you should also take the time to consider your perfect smile.
This presents the perfect opportunity to create that perfect smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Huynh will work with you to achieve the perfect color, shape, size, and placement of each and every tooth in order to custom-create your perfect smile.
