If you believe you require a restorative procedure, schedule an appointment with Precision Oral Surgery for a comprehensive evaluation. After a consultation at our office, our doctors will create a custom treatment plan that caters to your specific needs. We will review your treatment plan with you to ensure you leave with a completely new, rebuilt set of teeth after your dental procedure.
Your dentist will examine your mouth for oral health issues such as:
- Teeth – Depending on the state of your teeth, restorative procedures such as porcelain veneers or full-coverage crowns, inlays or onlays, bridges, or implants replaced with a crown may be required. Cavities and decay, tooth loss, tooth wear, cracks, short/long teeth, root canal concerns, and tooth movement will all be noted by your dentist.
- Periodontal (gum) tissues – If your gums aren’t in good condition, you’ll probably need scaling and root planning to get rid of periodontal disease. A periodontist may be required to provide more comprehensive periodontal treatment to ensure that your newly restored teeth have a strong foundation. Soft tissue or bone grafts may be used to strengthen your gums and underlying jaw bone in such treatments. Deep pockets, excess or insufficient gum tissue, gum disease, and bone density anomalies are all things your dentist will examine.
- Occlusion, temporomandibular joints, and jaw muscles – A stable bite is essential for your general dental health. It should not create pain when you close your mouth or chew, and it should not wear or damage your teeth. When your dentist plans your restoration surgery, occlusal alterations must be considered. Correcting occlusion may necessitate orthodontics or another sort of treatment (night guard or bite retraining orthotic) before further restorative procedures can be performed.
- Esthetics – Full mouth reconstruction also considers the color, shape, size, and proportion of your teeth, as well as how they appear with your gums, lips, mouth, side profile, and face.
The initial evaluation process necessitates the use of X-rays and photographs of your mouth, as well as impressions of your upper and lower teeth, models of your teeth made from the impressions, and a model of your bite. To design the optimal treatment plan for you, your dentist may recommend you to experts (periodontists, orthodontists, or oral surgeons) for further consultations.
After gathering all pertinent information, your dentist will devise a detailed, step-by-step treatment plan to address all of the issues in your mouth and complete your reconstruction. Make sure you understand the risks and benefits of the surgeries and treatments you’re considering.
