A Second Chance with Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Integrative dentistry services make dealing with most dental issues a direct and often simple process. For instance, if you have a cavity, a tooth filling or root canal treatment can likely fix it. However, when you have multiple issues to deal with, your treatment plan might not be as straightforward. Over time, issues like tooth decay, tooth wear, chips, and cracks in your teeth, often the result of poor bite equilibration, can lead to multiple complications with your dental health. To rejuvenate the health, function, and appearance of your smile, Dr. Lawson can prescribe full-mouth reconstruction using integrative dental medicine.
What Is Full-Mouth Reconstruction?
Full-mouth reconstruction is a carefully selected combination of procedures designed to revitalize the appearance of your smile, as well as your oral health and bite function, in a minimally invasive manner. In most cases, addressing your smile issues begins with correcting problems with jaw joint issues and malocclusion. These issues can lead to worn dentition, with teeth developing cracks, chips, and other concerns. In turn, these issues cause problems requiring fillings and root canals.
Dr. Lawson understands how poor dental occlusion and bite equilibration can impact your smile, often leading to a higher risk of TMJ dysfunction and damaged teeth. Using integrative dental medicine, we first address the causes of your malocclusion using custom oral appliances, orthodontics, and other treatments options before moving on to secondary treatments, such as fillings or dental crowns.
Because your smile and its needs are unique, your reconstruction plan will be specifically tailored to your smile. Depending on those needs, your treatment may include any combination of cosmetic and/or restorative treatments that most efficiently and effectively revitalizes your complete smile. If you’ve lost one or more teeth, then dental implants may also be a recommended part of your smile reconstruction.
If your smile is faced with multiple different issues, Dr. Lawson will work closely with you to develop an integrative full-mouth reconstruction plan and give your smile a fresh start! Dr. Lawson has completed a number of continuing education courses in order to provide comprehensive reconstruction, including the renowned Dawson Academy Core Curriculum.
