Have you given up on the hope of having a set of strong, beautiful teeth? If you believe that the state of your oral health is beyond repair, it is time to consider full mouth reconstruction. Full mouth reconstruction is a series of dental treatments that allows Nashville dentist Clint Newman to enhance his patient’s oral health as well as restore the strength and function of the teeth.
Unlike the cosmetic procedures typically used in a smile makeover that are performed mainly to enhance the aesthetics of the smile, our Nashville patients undergo full mouth reconstruction when they experience dental conditions that negatively affect the health and function of the teeth. Dr. Newman is able to restore a healthy state to the mouth (as well as improve the strength and function of the teeth) by addressing any combination of the following dental conditions.
Tooth decay is a condition that weakens the teeth and poses a threat to all surrounding teeth. If left untreated, tooth decay continues to worsen and can result in more serious problems such as root canal infection and tooth loss. Dr. Newman will treat all stages of tooth decay to restore the tooth’s strength and eliminate the threat of more extensive damage. Treatments for tooth decay range from dental fillings to dental crowns.
Teeth that have been fractured are more vulnerable to tooth decay and infection. Bacteria can easily enter the center of the tooth from chips and cracks on the surface of the enamel. Depending on the extent of the damage, Dr. Newman may treat a fractured tooth with dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns.
Teeth can be weakened by continual wear and tear or acid erosion. Habits such as teeth grinding and nail biting, or repeated exposure to acidic foods and beverages can wear down the tooth’s enamel and leave the tooth weak and vulnerable. Dr. Newman can place dental crowns to protect a weak tooth from more damage and restore its strength and function.
Adult Tooth Loss
Adult tooth loss is a dreaded, but fairly common, oral health problem. Tooth loss can be a result of extreme decay, severe injury, or gum disease. At Dr. Newman’s practice, missing teeth can be replaced with dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures. For our patients in Nashville, dental implants are recommended as an anchor for these dental restorations.
Teeth that are not aligned properly can cause discomfort to the teeth and jaws as well as cause other conditions such as headaches. In some cases the bite can be corrected by placing dental crowns on affected teeth. However, many patients will require orthodontic treatment to move the teeth into the proper position.
