If you are in need of multiple restorative dental treatments, Dr. John Krueger provides customized full mouth reconstruction at his Clearwater dental practice. A full mouth reconstruction combines one or more procedures into a treatment plan that restores a patient's full smile. Contact us today to learn how we can create a custom plan for you.
What Does a Full Mouth Restoration Include?
A full mouth restoration may involve any number of reconstructive treatments, including:
Dental Implants: These small titanium posts are surgically implanted into the jaw bone where they mimic tooth roots and provide support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants can provide a lifelong foundation for patients who want a superior level of security in their restorations.
Dental Crowns: Dr. Krueger can place crowns to protect and preserve cracked, broken, or severely damaged teeth. Crowns may also be used to restore teeth that have undergone root canal therapy. These restorations fit over existing teeth or affix to dental implants.
Dental Bridges: Dental bridges, or partial dentures, fill gaps left by one or more missing teeth. Traditional dental bridges affix to adjacent teeth that have been fitted with specialized crowns. Implant-supported bridges, like implant-supported crowns, attach to implants in the jaw for support.
Dentures: If you are missing most or all of your teeth, Dr. Krueger can provide you with a set of custom dentures that look beautiful and restore your bite. Traditional dentures fit snugly around the gums and are held in place by an adhesive patients apply daily. Implant-supported dentures attach directly to dental implants, providing superior stability and function.
Tooth-colored fillings: We provide composite resin fillings that are matched to the color of your natural teeth, so they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Fillings restore the space in the outer structure of a tooth where Dr. Krueger has removed decayed matter.
Inlays and onlays: Inlays and onlays are crafted to fit perfectly within or upon a tooth that has been chipped, cracked, or developed a cavity. Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are crafted in our laboratory from molds of patients' teeth and matched to their natural tooth color.
As part of your full mouth restoration, we provide a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) analysis of your jaw to ensure you do not suffer from TMJ disorder. This disorder may be caused from an irregular occlusion or bite, leading to excessive strain on the joints that connect the jaw to the skull. TMJ disorder can result in facial pain, headaches, and other symptoms. Dr. Krueger will determine the cause of this disorder and supply treatment including mouth guards and restorative treatments.
Crafting a Full Mouth Reconstruction that Suits Your Needs
Before performing your full mouth restoration, Dr. Krueger will show you on mounted diagnostic models that demonstrates exactly how we will treat your smile. Patient education is important to us. We want you to understand each step in your full mouth reconstruction so that you feel comfortable and confident during the process.
Your consultations with Dr. Krueger are of paramount importance during a full mouth reconstruction. The better Dr. Krueger understands your goals, the better he can customize a treatment plan that works for your life.
