Managing Complex Dental Problems
Many patients require treatment for more complex dental problems. From effects of years of neglect, trauma, decay, or gum disease, some patients need the teeth and gum tissue on one or both jaws to be reconstructed.
Over many years, teeth loss, tooth wear, failing restorations, and tooth migration can have a severe influence on a patient’s occlusion or “bite”. The overall effects can be damaging, creating problems with function, pain in the muscles or joints (TMJ), poor esthetics, and compromised speech. Treatment for patients in need of more extensive care usually involves almost every discipline of dentistry. With the help of other specialists, the foundation for a reconstruction can be prepared by treating infection, gum inflammation, and placing implants. Final prosthetic restorations can include crowns, bridges, dentures, veneers, and implants. The ultimate goal is to restore health, function, and beauty.
