Combine Multiple Restorative Procedures with Full Mouth Reconstruction
A full mouth reconstruction consists of multiple restorative treatments to rehabilitate your oral function and dental aesthetics. These treatments can include crowns, bridges, and dental implants, among others. Through these combined procedures, Dr. Barry Bessler can replace missing teeth and repair damage due to trauma, gum disease, and decay. Dr. Bessler is a renowned prosthodontist in Wayland, MA, who can design and place custom restorations that will be virtually identical to your smile. Plus, at Bessler & Kang, DMD, Prosthodontists, we work with a top-quality lab. Using the latest restorative materials, the ceramists can create prosthetics with a realistic shape, color, and sparkle. Thanks to the combined skill of both our lab and our dentist, we can create a treatment plan for you that can help improve your appearance, oral health, and self-confidence.
Is a Full Mouth Reconstruction Right for You?
Because full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment, it can be a good option if you have suffered extensive dental damage. For example, if you have multiple missing teeth, widespread decay, or seriously weakened teeth, Dr. Bessler may recommend reconstruction. Often, this multi-stage treatment is appropriate following severe gum disease. However, before your prosthodontist can begin any restorative treatments, the disease must be under control. Therefore, you may need to visit a general dentist or periodontist before full mouth reconstruction.
Planning and Performing a Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is 100 percent personalized. Accordingly, it requires meticulous treatment planning. Dr. Bessler will perform a full examination and consultation, collaborating with both you and your general dentist, as necessary. With this team approach, he can design a treatment plan that works for you. Finally, Dr. Bessler will consider the extent of dental damage, your health history, your aesthetic goals, and your budget before finalizing the treatment plan for your approval.
Thanks to the combined skill of both our lab and our dentist, we can create a treatment plan for you that can help improve your appearance, oral health, and self-confidence.
Your full mouth reconstruction could consist of two or more restorative dentistry procedures, including:
- Dental crowns: Crowns are “caps” that fully cover damaged teeth. A crown can repair serious decay, or it can strengthen a weakened tooth. It can be made to match the shape and color of your other teeth.
- Dental bridges: A bridge can replace between one and three missing teeth. Like a crown, it will fit over your natural teeth, so Dr. Bessler will need to reshape the teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile before attaching the restoration.
- Dentures: Dentures are large restorations that can replace many or all of your teeth. We offer full and partial dentures as well as traditional and implant-supported restorations, both of which will fit very comfortably and securely.
- Dental implants: Dental implants are titanium posts that replace your tooth roots. Dr. Bessler partners with highly skilled oral surgeons for implant placement. Once you have healed from implant surgery, he can attach your permanent crown, bridge, or denture.
- Tooth-colored fillings: Fillings are appropriate for small to medium-sized cavities. Our tooth-colored restorations will not only look more realistic than metal amalgam fillings, they can also strengthen your teeth more effectively and require less preparatory work.
- Periodontal care: Patients suffering from gum disease will require preliminary treatment to restore their gum health.
In some cases, Dr. Bessler may suggest cosmetic treatment following your reconstruction. For example, teeth whitening or dental bonding can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile with more dramatic results.
The Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
By combining multiple treatments, Dr. Bessler can dramatically improve your appearance and your oral health. Following full mouth reconstruction, you could enjoy a completely functional bite. Thus, you can eat a wide range of foods, and your nutritious diet could enhance your overall health. If you include implants in your reconstruction, the posts will prevent jawbone recession, protecting your appearance and remaining teeth. You may also find it easier to speak clearly, and you could feel more confident about your smile.
This personalized treatment is especially beneficial when you visit Dr. Bessler. He graduated from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and he focuses exclusively on prosthodontics and restorative care. He also gives frequent lectures on restorative techniques, teaching other dentists how to achieve the most lifelike results possible. At his own practice, Dr. Bessler takes pride in his craftsmanship and enjoys giving his patients truly stunning final results.
