Restoration options for missing/ decayed/ chipped/ broken teeth
In case of partial tooth damage, fractured or broken tooth, a proper examination is performed and then the needful treatment is done. Often in cases of decayed or damaged teeth, tooth extraction is performed and then the restoration is done with dental implants, basal implants, all-on-four implants, fixed bridges or dentures. In case of partial teeth loss bridges and crowns are used either with the support of other permanent teeth or the abutments.
Treatment option for periodontal problems
If periodontitis isn’t advanced, non-surgical treatments that are less invasive like scaling, root planning and antibiotics could be used. However, in case of severe periodontal damage the surgical procedures like Flap surgery (pocket reduction surgery), Soft tissue grafts, Bone grafting, Guided tissue regeneration and Tissue-stimulating proteins could be used.
Treatment options for issues with the jaw and the bite
In the case of malocclusion, the extent and the type of bite is analysed and then further treated with the help of an expert orthodontist. In severe cases when the bite cannot be corrected with orthodontic treatment, jaw surgery is performed. A TMJ disorder is also a type of issue that is faced in individuals who have difficulty in opening the jaw. The ankylosis is treated with surgery of the temporomandibular joint.
Aesthetic improvement of the mouth
Apart from the condition and placement of teeth, the periodontal fitness, the jaw bite and the occlusion, there is an aesthetic factor that completes the process of full mouth reconstruction. This aesthetic aspect includes cosmetic procedures like teeth cleaning/ scaling, polishing, bleaching, veneers etc.
