Comprehensive Treatment for Complex Cases
Full Mouth Reconstruction Little Rock
While the appearance of a smile is certainly important, the health and function of the teeth are especially critical. If the teeth are damaged, decayed, or their function otherwise at-risk, reconstruction is of ultimate importance. Through repairing and restoring the teeth, their appearance is usually improved as well. With cases requiring significant restorative dental work, Dr. John Cloud may recommend full mouth reconstruction. Though the name may sound intimidating, full mouth reconstruction is imperative to restore the ability to eat, speak, and smile normally. To find out more about full mouth reconstruction, contact our Little Rock dental practice to schedule a personal consultation.
About Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is typically a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures and treatments to improve the form, function, and appearance of the teeth. Common problems that can be addressed through full mouth reconstruction include:
- Teeth that have fallen out or been extracted
- Teeth that are badly decayed
- Teeth that are severely cracked, chipped, or otherwise structurally unsound
- A bite that is misaligned
- Pain in the temporomandibular joint
- Gaps between the teeth
- Teeth that are badly worn
Full mouth reconstruction is carefully planned. In addition to thoroughly evaluating the patient’s teeth, gums, and bite, Dr. Cloud discusses in-depth the problems the patient is experiencing, and his or her individual needs and goals. Treatments and procedures to address these problems are then suggested, and a treatment plan is developed. Dr. Cloud discusses what to expect - including benefits, risks, and cost - with the patient to make sure that everyone is on the same page about upcoming dental work. Then, the treatment plan is precisely carried out, sometimes over a period of several office appointments. The comfort, safety, and satisfaction of our patients are closely monitored, in order to ensure the best possible overall experience.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort because of dental issues, consider speaking with Dr. Cloud about your needs. He may suggest a full mouth reconstruction for cases he feels are appropriate. Contact our Little Rock dental office, serving Maumelle, Bryant, North Little Rock, Benton, and Conway, to schedule a full mouth reconstruction consultation with Dr. Cloud.
