The Challenges and Triumphs of a Full-Mouth Reconstruction
Neglecting dental care for a few years can significantly impact one's oral health, causing various problems that demand attention and care.
This is the story of a patient who faced missing teeth, fractured teeth, decay, ill-fitting crowns, and more.
However, with the expertise and dedication of Dr. PavineeThis link leads to Dr. Pavinee's page at Seattle Specialty DentistryThis link leads to Home page, this patient's neglected dental health found a path to restoration and a beautiful smile.
The emotional hurdles: a pause in dental care
Life circumstances, including the loss of a loved one, had temporarily derailed the patient's focus on dental care. Overwhelmed by personal matters, the patient had neglected their oral health.
However, with a renewed perspective and determination, they were now ready to step toward dental treatment.
The dental dilemmas: a complicated dental canvas
The patient arrived at Seattle Specialty Dentistry with a laundry list of dental issues, encompassing:
- Missing teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Poorly fitted crowns
- Generalized periodontal disease
Because of tooth extraction, the patient had been using a flipper to cover several teeth.
A flipper is a removable partial denture. It contains one or more artificial teeth that fit on the top or lower jaw. A flipper is often made from denture acrylic to ensure they blend perfectly with your smile. The denture is custom-made using an impression of your mouth.
The loss of posterior teeth led to an altered chewing pattern, putting extra stress on the front teeth. Additionally, the patient was dealing with bruxism (teeth grinding) and had defective crowns and bridges.
Crafting a solution: the path to a radiant smile
Dr. Pavinee proposed a full-mouth reconstruction with mutually protected occlusion to restore proper bite alignment and create a flawless smile.
The treatment plan included:
- Upper and lower impressions for a flipper.
- Extraction of three teeth and bone graft.
- Deep cleaning to address generalized tartar and periodontal issues.
- Implant placements for several teeth, addressing missing teeth, and ensuring proper support.
- Full-mouth reconstruction to correct the bite and enhance the smile's aesthetic appeal.
- Provision of a night guard to manage bruxism.
