Safely Repairing Your Smile
Ideally, all individuals would have access to superior dental care throughout the course of their lifetime, and be able to maintain their oral health without any extensive treatment. Unfortunately, there are a number of issues that can disrupt adequate care or cause problems with the health and appearance of the teeth. When patients have been affected by physical trauma or severe tooth decay, well-rounded treatment is necessary to help them get the smile they deserve. Dr. Michael Bixby is an experienced cosmetic and restorative dentist, performing full mouth reconstruction treatment at his Red Bank, New Jersey dental practice to help restore health and beauty to his patients’ smiles.
Full mouth reconstruction is the restorative counterpart to a cosmetic smile makeover. Rather than perform an individual treatment or procedure, Dr. Bixby creates a customized treatment plan that addresses the specific oral health problems that a patient faces. As an expert in neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Bixby has a distinct edge when it comes to understanding the structures of the mouth and how they relate to one another. He focuses on finding the proper position of the jaw and the teeth. Once this is complete, he can concentrate on other dental problems, such as significant decay, periodontal disease, broken or cracked teeth. A full mouth reconstruction may encompass treatment with:
Full mouth reconstruction can completely rebuild the upper and/or lower set of teeth, creating a strong foundation for oral health. The recovery period and length of time for final results varies between patients, depending on the scope of the treatment plan.
When the teeth or gums have become damaged or decayed, immediate attention is critical, for both oral and overall health. Patients who undergo full mouth reconstruction at Dr. Bixby’s Red Bank practice can enjoy a number of long-lasting benefits from their dental work. Improving the alignment of the teeth can alleviate discomfort and eliminate the chance of bone and gum recession. This in turn prevents a “caved-in” look that is characteristic of patients with diminished bone structure. In addition, eliminating bacteria in the mouth reduces the risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay. Finally, full mouth reconstruction can have a positive influence on a patient’s self-confidence.
Dr. Bixby and his staff want patients to understand that they don’t have to suffer through the embarrassment or discomfort that can accompany a flawed smile. Advanced cosmetic and restorative treatments can completely transform the health and appearance of the teeth and give you a newfound sense of confidence.
