Sometimes only small adjustments need to be made to a smile. Other times, a full smile reconstruction is needed. For a full mouth reconstruction in Forest Hills NY, there is no one better than Dr. Gregory Mark. With decades of experience in dentistry, Dr. Mark is able to provide outstanding cosmetic dentistry, implant therapy, and bio-functional dentistry services.

If you haven’t heard of full mouth reconstruction in Forest Hills NY, you may be wondering what it entails and the costs. The procedures required will differ from patient to patient, but there are some general commonalities when it comes to full smile reconstruction services.

What is Full Mouth Reconstruction in Forest Hills NY?

Full mouth reconstruction is the process of restoring the appearance and functionality of a smile with both cosmetic and practical dentistry services. This differs from a more targeted approach in that a full mouth reconstruction repairs a large portion of the mouth of a patient (as opposed to a tooth-by-tooth approach).

During full mouth reconstruction, decay, diseases, and damage are all addressed. With that said, your specific smile reconstruction may have an emphasis on health or cosmetics, depending on your needs. The most important thing is health and functionality. With that said, Dr. Mark will do everything he can to restore your smile to its former beauty.

For additional questions about full mouth reconstruction, reach out to Forest Hills Dental. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Why a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

There are a few main reasons why you’ll want to consider a full mouth reconstruction:

Oral health. Your oral healthcare is the number one priority for Dr. Mark. He will focus first on addressing oral health issues. This is the most important part of full mouth reconstruction.

Restoration. Beyond immediate oral healthcare issues, Dr. Mark will want to restore your mouth, so it has the same (or similar) functionality as when you had a healthy smile.

A beautiful smile! Finally, Dr. Mark will perform cosmetic services to provide you with a beautiful and aesthetically appealing smile.

Do I Need Reconstructive Dentistry?

Whether or not you need reconstructive dentistry depends on your unique circumstances. If you simply have cosmetic issues you would like addressed, you may not need a full mouth reconstruction. If you have functional and oral health issues, on the other hand, a full mouth reconstruction may be required to improve your oral health.

Below are some of the circumstances in which full mouth reconstruction may be the right option:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Multiple missing teeth
  • Aggressive wear to teeth
  • Bone loss
  • Severe periodontal disease
  • Extensive restorations, such as bridges, fillings, and crowns
  • A sunken-in facial profile
  • Complex aesthetic issues

If you have any of the problems above, reach out to Forest Hills Dental to set an appointment with Dr. Mark. He will take a look at your teeth, gums, and jawbone and let you know what restoration options are available to meet your needs.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Services in Forest Hills NY

There are a variety of different services that fall under the umbrella of “full mouth reconstruction.” Below are some of the treatments Dr. Mark will consider for your full mouth reconstruction:

  • Dental Implants —Dental implants replace a patient’s teeth when they fall out, are knocked out, or are extracted. This replacement method is known for its longevity and strength. With dental implants, a titanium rod or multiple rods are placed in the jawbone of a patient to hold a prosthetic in place. This may include anything from a single crown prosthetic to an entire row of dentures. While the prosthetic may wear over time, the implant itself will often last a lifetime. The materials used for the dental prosthetics vary, and some materials can be made to look very similar to natural teeth.
  • Tooth Extraction — If a tooth has been damaged to the point where it can no longer be repaired, a tooth extraction is the only remaining option. With that said, the option may be available to have dental implants placed to replace missing teeth. If not, Dr. Mark will decide between bridges or dentures.
  • CEREC Crowns — CEREC crowns are a crown replacement option that can be placed same-day. These crowns are made from ceramic and are custom-milled to fit the tooth of the individual patient. A machine is used to scan the tooth, so no trays or gooey material are necessary. Dr. Mark is able to choose a similar shade to your natural teeth and provide a cap in as little as an hour or so.
  • Periodontal Therapy — In order to provide restoration services, it’s important for the gums of the patient to be properly cared for. Restoring gums affected by gum disease is one of the first considerations before providing cosmetic services.
  • White Composite Fillings — White composite fillings are great for the restoration of smaller amounts of tooth decay. These fillings bond to the tooth and mimic the look of the organic tooth. Fillings are one of the most common forms of tooth restoration and are a simple procedure.
  • Dental Veneers — Dental veneers are similar to dental crowns except they cover a smaller portion of the tooth and not the entire crown. This form of restoration is great for cracks, chips, discoloration, and other cosmetic issues. While they can add additional support, they are mainly used to improve cosmetic issues.
  • Dentures or Partial Dentures — Dentures are a common prosthetic for the replacement of missing teeth. Dentures can be used to replace a portion of a patient’s teeth or an entire row. They are a good option for patients that are unable to have dental implants placed or are on a budget.

These are some of the most common restoration options, although other options may be suggested as well.

What Does the Process Look Like?

The process of full mouth reconstruction begins with a trip to Forest Hills Dental. Dr. Mark will take a look at your teeth, gums, and jawbone to see what restorations need to be completed. He will also ask about your specific priorities or concerns.

The first thing Dr. Mark will want to work on is functional and oral health problems. Before aesthetic issues are addressed, it’s important to restore the health of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. In order to do so, he will perform a visual examination and a series of digital x-rays. He may also take photographs and impressions.

Once Dr. Mark has gathered all of the information he requires, he will design a custom care plan to meet your specific oral healthcare needs. He will first address issues that relate to your health, then he will move on to addressing cosmetic problems. Before you know it, you’ll have a smile you can be proud of!
