Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Fully Restore the Health and Beauty of Your Smile
When a single treatment is not enough to fully restore a patient’s smile, we recommend a full mouth reconstruction at our Fishers office. Combining different restorative and cosmetic procedures can completely restore the health and appearance of your teeth and gums. If you are suffering with a compromised smile, please contact our office to make an appointment with Dr. David Taler.
Combining Procedures for Customized Treatment
A full mouth reconstruction can comprise several treatments:
- Periodontics – Before the health of the teeth can be addressed, we must address any health issues affecting the gums. Treatments can include traditional cleanings, laser cleaning, scaling, root planing, or periodontal surgery.
- Bone Grafting – In the absence of tooth roots, the jaw can begin to atrophy, or shrink. This can also occur because of severe tooth decay and other factors. A bone graft can restore lost bone mass, laying the foundation for dental implants.
- Dental Implants – Designed to replace tooth roots, dental implants are small, threaded titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw. They are designed to support crowns and dentures. In fact, the support they provide allows you to use your dentures to eat all the chewy, sticky, and crunchy foods you love without worrying that they will slip out of place.
- Dental Restorations – Crowns are tooth-shaped restorations used to support teeth following treatment for damage or decay, or restore a dental implant. Dentures can replace most or all of the teeth on an entire arch, and can either rest on the gums or attach to dental implants. Our restorations are custom-crafted to provide a natural appearance.
- TMJ Disorder Treatment – Problems involving the temporomandibular joints (jaw joints) can be addressed as part of your customized reconstruction plan. Treatments are aimed at reducing pain, correcting malocclusions, and restoring function.
- Orthodontics – Invisalign® or traditional braces can be used to correct crooked or misaligned teeth.
Many patients will also choose teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or other cosmetic treatments to enhance the appearance of their smiles as a part of their full mouth reconstruction.
Relax through Treatment with Sedation
To ensure our patients’ comfort during full mouth reconstruction or any other procedure, we offer sedation dentistry. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety can now relax through their procedures with the help of nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral conscious sedation, and IV (intravenous) sedation. We also offer general anesthesia in a hospital setting to our patients who suffer from severe anxiety.
Insurance and Financing
Our office accepts most dental insurance programs and we will work with you to maximize your benefits and ensure that any remaining balances are discussed with you beforehand. We also offer CareCredit℠ and Springstone℠ financing options to give our patients flexibility in their payments. We will be happy to perform a complimentary insurance evaluation and find a payment plan that fits your budget. Give us a call at (317) 849-1223 to find out more.
