Dental Reconstruction in Anchorage, AK

Dental Reconstruction in Anchorage, AK

At Emerald Peak Dental, we perform dental reconstructions to correct problems with a patient’s teeth, gums, or bite. The process may involve the placement of dental implants, bridges, or dentures. While some patients may need one or a combination of these procedures, others may need a full mouth reconstruction. After your reconstruction, you can eat, talk and laugh more confidently.

When Would Dental Reconstructions Necessary?

Our dentist may recommend a dental reconstruction to address certain conditions, such as an injury or advanced gum disease. When a dental reconstruction is recommended, it is most often performed to treat damage due to trauma to the mouth or teeth. In these cases, the dental reconstruction is intended to restore the mouth to a healthy state and regain functionality. 

Jaw realignment may also be recommended for patients who have suffered facial trauma but have not lost a tooth. This will prevent misalignment issues from occurring in the future and help patients regain normal jaw function. Other instances where dental reconstruction may be necessary include advanced periodontal disease, in which deterioration of gum structure has caused the tooth to become loose or even fall out completely. In these cases, a dental restoration will replace the missing tooth and restore proper oral health to the patient. It can also help to prevent the further spread of infection in the mouth and prevent the need for more invasive procedures, such as oral surgeries. 

Is Dental Reconstruction Right for Me?

The only way to know for sure is to talk to a dentist about your options. They’ll need to take X-rays and examine your mouth to see the extent of the damage and how much bone has been lost. From there, they can recommend options and make personalized recommendations based on your particular situation. 

In the case of tooth loss, you’ll likely be able to choose between dental implants or dentures. Implants are an excellent choice for many reasons, like they’re just as stable as natural teeth, meaning you can eat and speak normally once you get them placed. Unlike dentures, they’ll also provide enough stimulation to the jaw bone to prevent bone mass loss and maintain your facial structure and jawbone. Both can provide the functionality to your smile, but implants offer more stability than dentures. Ultimately, it comes down to what your dentist recommends after examining your teeth.
