Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Address Multiple Issues to Restore Oral Health
Dr. Cheryl Pearson offers full mouth reconstruction in her Faculty Practice at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, to restore the health and appearance of a compromised smile. Dr. Pearson has advanced training in implant and cosmetic dentistry, and uses state-of-the-art restorations to provide excellent function and appearance. Suffering from multiple oral health issues can make patients feel hopeless, but Dr. Pearson's skill and expertise have helped many to experience improved health and a better quality of life.
Dr. Pearson recommends full mouth reconstruction for patients suffering from multiple or severe oral health complications that are not resolvable with a single procedure. A typical candidate has suffered significant damage or tooth loss as a result of decay, gum disease, poor health, or trauma. Dr. Pearson can address other issues, such as bruxism (teeth grinding), enamel erosion, and misalignment.
Dr. Pearson can bring your smile back from any state of disrepair.
Based on an extensive assessment, Dr. Pearson will recommend the procedures that will help you achieve optimal oral health. Some patient treatment plans require just two or three procedures, while others require much more extensive work. Depending on your needs, your full mouth reconstruction may involve:
- Dental fillings to repair teeth after decay and protect the tooth from future cavities. Dr. Pearson uses tooth-colored composite resin fillings because they are non-toxic and blend seamlessly with your smile.
- Inlays and onlays are used to repair moderate decay on the chewing surfaces or cusps of the tooth. These restorations are custom-made from durable tooth-colored materials to protect your tooth.
- Dental crowns are used to reinforce teeth with more extensive damage that make fillings or inlays and onlays insufficient. These caps are custom-made to fit over damaged teeth and protect them from further damage. Dental crowns are also used to restore a single dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
- A dental bridge typically replaces two to three missing teeth and is supported by crowns placed on the adjacent healthy teeth.
- Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that support crowns, bridges, and dentures. Because they replace the tooth from root to crown, they offer superior health benefits as well as unrivaled support. The implants are surgically placed in the jaw, where they become permanently fused to bone tissue. They not only prevent your restorations from shifting, but also prevent the jaw atrophy that occurs after a tooth has been lost.
- Dr. Pearson offers both traditional and implant-supported dentures made from PMMA and zirconia.
