Full Mouth Reconstruction
Dr. Zola Makrauer and Dr. Julie Miller are highly recommended for full mouth reconstruction. They may suggest a full mouth reconstruction depending on the patient’s dental situation. The procedure is especially common amongst patients who may have dental issues that require multiple implants, bridges, or crowns. Here are some methods we use at Huntingdon Valley Dental Arts to perform full mouth reconstruction.
Implants are the most popular way of replacing missing teeth. They are very popular options during most full mouth reconstruction because they are versatile. For instance, they can be used to support one or multiple teeth. In fact, patients can replace each arch (the entire top or bottom row of teeth) with only 4-6 implants. Implants can support bridges, crowns, and various dental restorations.
Zirconia is one of the latest materials introduced in dentistry. It is highly resistant and does not change its color when exposed to coffee, tea, and other foods and beverages that cause discoloration. This option is very popular for those concerned with the color of their new teeth.
Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA)
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is a popular new material used for full mouth reconstruction. The material is commonly used in this process because it can easily form into areas of a patient’s mouth that can’t use traditional methods like implants. In some cases, a part of the patient’s mouth may not be suitable for an implant. However, thanks to PMMA, this does not mean that a full mouth reconstruction is not possible.
