Many of our patients go years without visiting the dentist; experience trauma that leaves their smile less-than-perfect; or have severely decaying teeth. When one patient has a number of restorative, cosmetic, and oral-health problems, a full-mouth reconstruction can often bring their smile back to life. Ridgewood Dental Associates has a methodical and thorough reconstruction process that results in astounding results.

Understanding the Procedure
Each of the full-mouth reconstructions we perform are unique to the patient we see. The pre-planning phase of a reconstruction is essential to the success of the treatment, and your doctor will spend quality time with you discussing your expectations and goals. Although your care plan will vary based on your own needs, some of the services provided during a reconstruction are:
- Dental implant surgery and placement
- Periodontal treatment
- Dental crowns and bridges
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
How it Can Help
Missing teeth are one of the oral health problems that cause the most trouble. Once you lose a tooth, the structure of your entire jaw begins to change - your remaining teeth can shift out of place, and your jawbone will start to deteriorate. The exposed gums left behind can trap dangerous bacteria that can cause gum disease, decay of the surrounding teeth, and even further tooth loss. Replacing these teeth during reconstruction will protect your jawbone, while also protecting your gums and teeth.
Broken, chipped, cracked, or infected teeth can all be detrimental to your health and comfort. These various ailments can cause pain when you eat and may be especially sensitive to the temperature of food and beverages. Breaks in your teeth that go untreated can also trap harmful bacteria, putting your teeth at risk for further breakage. With crowns or dental bonding, these complications can be corrected.
Freely smiling, laughing, and speaking is often dependent on how comfortable you are with the way your smile looks. Discolored, misaligned, and overlapping teeth can make you feel embarrassed or self-conscious. At Ridgewood Dental Associates, we understand that a full-mouth reconstruction should be just as focused on aesthetics as it is on health and function. Your smile will never look better than after this treatment.
