Do you have severe tooth damage, bone loss, or few or no teeth still intact? This post is for local residents who are experiencing severe or moderate dental pain in Knoxville. First off, we feel for you. We understand how severe dental pain in Knoxville can affect you every day of your life.
Whatever the cause of the condition – chemotherapy, recreational drug use, eating disorder, severe mouth injury, disability, inadequate oral hygiene, or simply poor overall health – there is hope. A full mouth reconstruction can restore your previously healthy, pleasing smile or give you the stunning smile you never had. Patients who undergo full mouth reconstruction regain their confidence to smile, eat, and speak normally. How would that impact your life?
Replacing missing teeth and adding bone through grafting restores underlying facial structure, improving or preventing that “sunk-in” look that arises when teeth are gone and the jawbone recedes. Full mouth reconstruction is a term which refers to a combination of dental procedures that restore a smile for people with several damaged or missing teeth. Treatment may include any combination of procedures such as crowns, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, white filling replacement, tooth implants, porcelain veneers, implant-anchored dentures, gum contouring, soft tissue grafts, bone grafts, and tooth whitening.
Dental implants are usually the best tooth replacement for Jim Erpenbach DDS patients with missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. If there is not enough bone to anchor an implant, bone grafting may be performed to augment existing bone. The post integrates with the bone to provide a sturdy foundation for the abutment and beautiful crown. Dental implants are indistinguishable from original teeth in both form and function. If you currently have dentures, talk to us about implant-anchored full or partial dentures. Significant improvements can be made even if you only get two or three tooth implants.
Jim Erpenbach DDS offers a full menu of cosmetic dental care including total mouth reconstruction. We also help patients who are dealing with dental pain in Knoxville. Talk to us about financing or a multi-procedure treatment schedule that allows you to pay as you go. Restoring a healthy smile may be the best investment you ever make.
