Some oral health issues can make a big impact on your everyday life. Missing teeth, tooth damage, and infections can create tooth pain, difficulty biting or chewing, or aesthetic problems that impact self-confidence. Addressing functional problems with restorative dentistry services in our Port Charlotte, FL, office can improve the comfort, appearance, and overall health of your teeth and gums.
What is a Full Mouth Restoration?
A full mouth restoration or reconstruction utilizes multiple restorative treatments to restore the smile fully. Patients with multiple restorative dental needs, including tooth damage, TMJ (temporomandibular disorders), gum disease, or missing teeth, can receive several treatments to restore their smiles. For example, if patients have gum disease and missing teeth, we will first address the gum infection. Once we ensure that the patient is in good oral health, we recommend a single implant, bridge, or dentures based on the number of missing teeth. Full mouth reconstructions fully rebuild the smile, replacing missing teeth, fixing tooth damage, and addressing decay for a healthier smile.
Restorative Dentistry in Port Charlotte, FL
Patients who need to renew their smiles benefit from restorative dentistry. Restorative treatments we offer at Sun Smile Dentistry include:
A bridge restores multiple consecutive missing teeth, closing the gaps in the mouth. Traditional dental bridges use natural teeth adjacent to the tooth gap for support. However, we can use one or more dental implants to secure a dental bridge.
Tooth crowns are tooth-colored caps that cover and protect single teeth. Crowns can cover a damaged or worn tooth or cap off dental implants. We can provide same-day dental crowns to patients using digital impressions and an in-office milling machine.
Implants are high-quality, durable restorations that can secure crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants consist of a titanium implant post that we place in the jaw bone. Once this post heals, we place a restoration.
Dentures & Partials
Partial and complete dentures restore rows and arches of missing teeth. Like other restorations, dentures can use multiple dental implants to stay in place. We will often recommend implant-secured dentures to improve bite function and restoration longevity.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Gum disease, or periodontitis, is an infection that can lead to bleeding, inflamed, receded gum tissue. Patients with gum disease benefit from scaling and root planing, cleanings we provide in-office to remove bacteria from the gums and tooth roots.
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), commonly known as TMJ, create many problems for patients. Common symptoms of TMJ disorders include teeth clenching and grinding, jaw pain, and headaches. Custom-made nightguards and physical therapy can help alleviate these symptoms.
Restorative Dentistry FAQs
Discover more about restorative dental care with answers to these popular questions:
Do dental implants replace every tooth in the mouth?
No, implants will not replace every missing tooth if all your teeth are missing. However, as few as four and as many as eight implants can secure an arch of missing teeth.
Do dental crowns look natural?
Dental crowns look like natural teeth because they are color-matched to blend in with adjacent teeth. Crowns are custom-made to match the exact shape and shade of natural teeth. Their materials also match the sheen of natural teeth.
Do I need a nightguard if I have TMD?
While not every patient with TMD will clench and grind their teeth, they may need a nightguard for many reasons. Nightguards can prevent the jaw from locking, correct the bite position, and relax the jaw and facial muscles.
