Get the Use of Your Mouth Back with a Full-Mouth Reconstruction From Smile Design Dental
Do you suffer from more than one issue attacking your mouth? Are you looking for a way to have them all knocked out with one comprehensive plan? If so, a full-mouth reconstruction from Newburgh, NY dentist Dr. Petrosino of Smile Design Dental may be an option for you.
What is a full-mouth reconstruction?
A full-mouth reconstruction is a plan used to solve severe dental problems robbing patients of the function of their mouth. These patients have more than one severe functionality problem, and a full-mouth restoration is used to correct these using as few procedures as possible. By combining different restorative techniques into one plan, we are able to correct multiple issues through a coordinated treatment plan. This allows you to have the function of your mouth restored, often with less recovery time.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots used to anchor different restorative options. They can be used to anchor a single tooth replacement (crown), All-on-4TM or All-on-6, implant-supported and implant-retained dentures, and also implant-supported bridges. The dental implants allow for superior stability and support for all of these different restorations.
What does All-on-4TM do?
The All-on-4 method uses a restorative ceramic dental arch that is attached to four dental implants. These implants are strategically placed along your jawline to give you superior support and stability while eating or talking. Dr. Petrosino will go over the specific options that are available to you and help you decide which method will best suit your needs.
What is different about mini dental implants?
Mini dental implants are smaller than traditional dental implants. They are smaller in thickness, or gauge, and can be shorter in length. This means that the placement is less invasive, which in turn means less recovery time is needed. Though there is some debate about whether they are appropriate for some implant applications, Dr. Petrosino will go over your situation and help you decide if mini dental implants are the option that will best fulfill your needs.
Can I really have a new smile in one day?
In fact, you can. Through the use of E4D crown technology and its in-office milling machine, top-notch Newburgh, NY dentist Dr. Petrosino can have your ceramic restoration ready for you in a matter of hours.
