How a Dental Professional Can Help
When it comes to dental reconstruction surgery, there are two main focuses: restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. Commonly, restorative dentistry will be used to heal the wounded areas, and cosmetic dentistry will be used to straighten any misalignments and replace any extracted or avulsed teeth.
If you find yourself dealing with periodontitis, a late stage of gum disease, your dentist will first start by conducting a thorough examination. From there, a course of action will be devised to reconstruct and heal the mouth. Beginning with restorative dentistry, the problem area will be treated using a series of procedures and surgeries to begin to restore the function of your teeth and gums. With gum disease, this can include gum contouring, bone grafting, sinus augmentation, and even extractions. Once the gum disease has been addressed, the areas can begin to heal and be prepped for implants to ensure everything works as it should.
For those who have been in an accident or are in need of reconstructive surgery due to an accident, your dentist will work to replant any avulsed teeth or realign any major shifts. This can be done through periodontal splints or even dental implants. Other common forms of restorative dentistry include root canals, onlays and inlays, dental crowns, dental bridges, and the All-on-4 procedure.
When you are in need of whitening, straightening, or general cosmetic dental assistance, Journal Square Dental can help. Restorative dentistry can leave you with implants that are whiter than the rest of your teeth or with gums that need contouring. With our Smile Makeover package, we can help reconstruct your smile and then ensure it looks exactly the way you want it to. Using Invisalign and other small procedures, we can quickly and painlessly straighten any crooked teeth, all without the need for bulky braces.
We can also ensure your teeth match your new implants, using veneers or whitening methods to rid your smile of any discoloration or stains. Cosmetic dentistry is a nice way to put a big bow on your perfectly functioning teeth and give you a smile to show off.
