With our modern tools and experience, we can provide minimal discomfort treatment and beautiful results.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction can be completely customized to meet your goals. This treatment is designed to address widespread, severe dental damage, including multiple missing teeth and bone recession. Dr. Diamond or Dr. Schlesinger may recommend several treatments to restore your smile and dental function. Full mouth reconstruction can also improve your overall oral health and prevent future problems.
Treatment Options for Full Mouth Reconstruction
Dental implants are often fundamental to full mouth reconstruction. These titanium posts integrate with your jaw. They replace your tooth roots and become a permanent part of your oral structure. Typically, Dr. Diamond or Dr. Schlesinger uses our advanced Waterlase® YSSG laser to perform implants surgery. We are the first periodontal practice in Manhattan to use this technology. The laser can dramatically reduce discomfort and recovery time. Once your jaw has healed around the implants, you will receive a custom-made restoration. Implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement. They are permanent, stable, and lifelike. Implants can also prevent jawbone recession.
Along with implants, your full mouth reconstruction could include soft tissue grafting or tissue regeneration.
Along with implants, your full mouth reconstruction could include soft tissue grafting or tissue regeneration. These procedures can reverse gum or jaw recession. Drs. Diamond and Schlesinger use a variety of techniques to perform these treatments. They employ state-of-the-art lasers and other advanced technology for effective care with lasting results.
Are You a Candidate for Full Mouth Reconstruction?
If you have lost multiple teeth, or if you have suffered tissue recession, you may be a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. This multi-stage treatment can be especially beneficial if you have developed gum disease. However, before beginning restorative care, Dr. Diamond or Dr. Schlesinger will first need to treat periodontitis, tooth decay, or other conditions affecting the foundation of your smile. There are a number of ways to address this condition. Common treatments include scaling and root planning and local antibiotics. We can also use our Waterlase® laser to sterilize your gums and remove diseased tissue.
Implant surgery and related procedures are generally safe for the right candidates. Conditions such as cancer, an autoimmune disease, or a blood disorder can affect your body’s ability to heal. In such cases, we may refer you to a colleague who is better equipped to meet your needs.
