We’ve spoken extensively about the various cosmetic dental procedures that can improve your smile’s appearance. Even if various blemishes afflict multiple teeth, a smile makeover can change their shape, color, and symmetry to restore your smile’s appeal. In some cases, however, your smile may be afflicted by serious issues that require more than cosmetic attention. Miami dentist, Dr. Arun Garg, explains how a full-mouth reconstruction can restore your smile’s health and function, as well as improve its beauty.
A Total Smile Overhaul
Foundation and Alignment
Before your smile can look its finest, it must function at its best. The first step to a full-mouth reconstruction is to ensure that your smile’s foundation is strong and healthy. If gum disease is present, Dr. Garg will develop a personalized plan to treat gum disease and restore any damage that may have occurred. The alignment of your jaw and teeth must also align properly for your dental work to be successful. If your bite is imbalanced, your jaw will have to work overtime to keep your teeth straight as you bite, chew, and speak. If you suffer from malocclusion, or a misaligned bite, then you may require orthodontic treatment to realign your teeth and jaws before you can proceed to your smile’s visage.
Filling the Gaps
If you’re missing one or more teeth, replacing them is vital to your smile’s function and appearance. Depending on the number of teeth lost, dental bridges and dentures can offer excellent solutions to filling the gaps left in your smile. By anchoring your dental prosthetic to one or more dental implants, you can help ensure that your replacement teeth are securely fastened for ultimate stability. Replacing your lost tooth roots can also help prevent jawbone deterioration, which follows after a tooth root is lost.
