Oral rehabilitation blends the best restorative and cosmetic dentistry services together. It may include treatments such as: dental implants, crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, gum contouring, bonding, and more. Few patients have life-long problems with their complete dentures, such as difficulties with speech and mastication. Implant-supported prosthesis gives an opportunity to such patients a normal healthy life for their functional and esthetic demands.
Why is Ridge Augmentation?
Teeth loss can lead to another dental obstacle, but oral rehabilitation treatment method can help you to maintain good dental health and avoid this common difficulty. For example, oral improvement, extraction, tooth loss, trauma, or periodontal disease might cause bone or gum loss. It is important to maintain a healthy density of gums and bones in order to protect your dental health. Even if you are missing a tooth, you should still work to maintain the health of that area in your mouth.
When a ridge augmentation and socket preservation is complete, it fills the area where the bone has been lost. A bone substitute is used to stimulate the natural repair functions within the body so that the bone is re-built and the socket is repaired.
When a tooth is removed from the jaw bone, a socket is left in the bone. In many situations, this hole will heal on its own. But, there are other situations where the bone is unable to heal on its own, which might require additional mouth reconstruction to help the bone heal. If the bone is unable to heal and mouth repair treatment is delayed, then it might result in a situation where the jaw bone will continue to deteriorate oral recovery.
Successful treatment of complex cases
Sometimes patients come to us with a combination of dental issues, such as missing teeth, decayed teeth, a bad bite, gum disease, and broken-down dental work. They have been too afraid of the dentist to get their teeth addressed earlier, or they have had poor dentistry and are not sure how to get it fixed.
We have helped hundreds of patients with complex issues to regain full oral health and function.
As people get older, their teeth get worn out, making a person look older than they actually are. Most of these individuals end up having more issues with their overall occlusion, which result in their problems not be solved by just giving them some new veneers. When their occlusion is really studied over, one realizes they may need their entire dentition restored. This ends up becoming a lot more than what most people have bargained for and when this is discussed, many people are blown away by the cost.
So, we are put in a position of doing what is right or not doing anything at all. How many times do patients tell you, “Doc, just fix my front teeth? I know you can do it. I don’t care about my other teeth. Nobody can see them anyway.” And if you give in to their request, you, unfortunately, have created a situation that will most likely keep you up at night wondering when this patient is going to call you with a broken veneer that they say you did and asking why it broke.
