Prosthodontic reconstruction is a term used to describe any dental procedure that is used to replace or repair teeth. Crowns, braces, root canals, and implants are a few of things that classify as prosthodontic reconstruction.
On their own, each reconstructive procedure is used to fix a single problem found in one or several teeth. Occasionally, a person suffers from multiple oral health issues which affect several or all of their teeth.
In these cases, dental patients should consider complete oral prosthodontic reconstruction.
The need for complete oral prosthodontic reconstruction may result from one or more of the following:
- Severe tooth decay
- Worn teeth caused by long-term acid erosion or tooth grinding
- Fractured teeth
- Pain caused by one's bite
Complete oral prosthodontic reconstruction means that multiple reconstructive procedures are needed to restore oral health and repair teeth. Reconstruction may include two or more of the following procedures:
- Dental Implants: To replace missing teeth
- Tooth Restoration: Fillings, crowns, and bridges
- Surgery: Tooth extractions and root canals
- Cosmetics: Whitening and veneers
- Orthodontics: braces, tooth alignment, and retainers
Complete oral prosthodontic reconstruction is fully comprehensive. Each patient is treated according to an individualized plan to resolve their specific oral health problems and concerns. Following full reconstruction, patients enjoy all the benefits of having a healthy mouth.
