If you are missing teeth due to disease, decay, or injury, you are familiar with the challenges that come with an incomplete smile. Having your full smile restored will make speech, chewing, and swallowing easy again. Here at Millennium Family Dental, we can save your smile, while making it stronger and more aesthetically pleasing.
Our most common restorative dentistry services include dental bridges, dental crowns, dental implants, dentures, and full mouth reconstruction that could involve more than one procedure.
Dental bridges are restorations that can replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of two dental crowns that are placed over natural teeth on either side of a gap and a pontic, which is the replacement tooth or teeth that will fill in the gap. Dental bridges will prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place and becoming crooked.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over the visible portion of a tooth above the gumline. When a tooth is cracked, broken, decayed, worn down, or misshapen, crowns can be the solution to make the tooth look and function better.
When you lose a tooth, you have a noticeable “hole” in your smile. Dental implants are now one of the most popular methods to restore a smile.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to a missing tooth. They involve the insertion of a titanium post into the jaw bone. Once the jawbone heals, your dentist places an abutment on the gums and attaches a porcelain crown.
A dental implant looks and functions like a traditional tooth with a 98% success rate. To ensure success, you’ll need to hire an experienced Meridian dentist. Dental implant procedures can also help if you have many missing teeth. They are also are beneficial to your oral health because they strengthen the jaw bone, preventing the bone from deteriorating.
We offer fantastic dentures at Millennium Family Dental, including traditional and implant-supported options. Our traditional dentures include a base that seals to the gums and blends in with them. Attached to the base is a set of replacement teeth.
Implant-supported dentures are a great tooth replacement option because they can stay in your mouth at all times like natural teeth do. They consist of dental implants that are placed into the jaw and a set of dentures that click into the implants. They promote a natural appearance and the same feeling as real teeth.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction, also known as full mouth restoration or rehabilitation, is a comprehensive dental treatment that involves restoring or rebuilding all of a person’s teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. This extensive procedure is typically recommended for individuals with multiple dental issues affecting their entire mouth.
The treatment plan is customized to address the specific needs and conditions of the individual patient. Procedures may include dental crowns, dental implants, dental bridges, dentures, orthodontic treatment, cosmetic dentistry, or a mix of these treatments.
The goal of full mouth reconstruction is not only to address oral health issues but also to improve the overall function, aesthetics, and comfort of the patient’s mouth. The treatment plan is usually phased over time. The duration and specific procedures involved are based on the individual’s needs.
