Preparing for Your Treatment
When you first consult with Dr. Stahle, you will discuss your functional and aesthetic goals. Dr. Stahel will evaluate the overall health of your smile. She will use advanced tools, like digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, to take a closer look at areas that require treatment. Once she has a thorough understanding of your oral health and your goals, she will recommend a combination of treatments. Before any restorative treatment can begin, Dr. Stahle will ensure that your gums are healthy. Many patients require scaling and root planing or other periodontal treatments, which we can perform in our office.
Dr. Stahle uses the latest technology and highest-grade materials for full mouth reconstruction procedures. Common treatment options in a full mouth reconstruction include:
- Dental Implants – Dental implants are biocompatible titanium posts, surgically inserted in the jaw where a patient is missing teeth. Once healing is complete, implants mimic the function of your natural tooth roots. This provides unparalleled stability for restorations and stimulates the jaw bone to prevent it from resorbing (a common side effect of long-term tooth loss).
- Dental Crowns – Dental crowns are single-tooth restorations. A traditional dental crown fits like a cap over a natural tooth that has been damaged by decay or undergone root canal therapy. Implant-supported crowns are single prosthetic teeth that are secured by a dental implant.
- Dental Bridges – This type of restoration literally bridges the gap left by one or more consecutive missing teeth. A traditional dental bridge is supported by adjacent teeth capped with specialized crowns. An implant-supported bridge is supported by two or more dental implants that hold it firmly in place.
- Dentures – Dentures are partial or full-arch restorations suitable for patients with widespread tooth loss. Like bridges and crowns, dentures may be traditional or implant-supported. Traditional dentures are removable and are secured in place using specialized adhesive paste. Implant-supported dentures are secured by several implants, which offers unparalleled stability.
- Root Canal Therapy – Whenever possible, preserving your natural teeth is preferable to extraction. Root canal therapy is used to treat infection and restore your oral health.
- Inlays and Onlays – Inlays and onlays, also known as indirect fillings, are created in a laboratory using detailed impressions of your teeth. They are a more conservative treatment option than a dental crown, and are placed on the biting surfaces of your back teeth.
At the end of your full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Stahle will ensure that your smile is not only functioning well, but is also beautiful and natural-looking.
