What causes tooth loss?

There are several causes of tooth loss. They include:

  • Gum disease: If plaque and bacteria are not properly removed from the teeth and gums, they can cause infection, and the body will begin to attack itself. The body’s response to this attack is to detach the gums from the teeth, creating pockets where food, plaque, and bacteria can hide and cause further damage.
  • Trauma: Trauma to the face or mouth can cause tooth loss.
  • Poor dental hygiene: Poor dental hygiene can lead to tooth decay and, ultimately, tooth loss.
  • Tobacco use: Tobacco contains nicotine and tar, both of which can cause several oral health issues, including tooth loss.

Full Mouth Reconstruction: What does it involve?

Full mouth reconstruction is a series of procedures that restore a smile. Generally, full mouth reconstruction is a restoration of severely damaged teeth or a smile that has gone through a lot of dental issues. Full mouth reconstruction combines multiple cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures.

Full mouth reconstruction procedures can include:

  • Dental crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that completely cover each tooth. Dental crowns may be recommended when a tooth is severely damaged, broken, decayed, or has a very large filling. Dental crowns can also be used to fix the appearance of a misshapen or broken tooth. Dental crowns may also be used to support dental bridges, which replace one or more missing teeth. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Dental crowns are placed over damaged teeth to protect them from further damage and improve the patient’s smile.

  • Dental bridges

A dental bridge is a device that is custom fit to your mouth and is used to replace missing teeth. The bridge is permanently attached to two crowns, which are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap. The bridge spans the gap and fills in the gap, preventing surrounding teeth from moving out of position.

  • Dental implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are used to replace teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma. They are placed into the jawbone and act as a tooth root would, securing the tooth to the jawbone. Dental implants can also be used to secure dentures or partial dentures, making them much more secure and comfortable.

  • Dental fillings

A dental filling is a dental restoration that is used to repair a cavity. A cavity is a hole in the tooth caused by decay. Decay is caused by bacteria that feed on sugar and produce acid that wears away the tooth enamel.

  • Root canal therapy

When your tooth is cracked, chipped, broken, or severely decayed, your dentist may recommend root canal therapy. The root canal treatment procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth, cleaning the area, and then filling it to prevent any further issues. If the damaged tooth is left untreated, it can cause more issues, including abscesses, bone loss, and infections. Through root canal treatment, we remove the damaged nerve and pulp. Then, we clean the teeth and fill the cavity with a composite material. After a root canal procedure, your tooth will be fully functional once again.

  • Veneers

Veneers are custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to your teeth. They are made from composite resin, a durable, tooth-colored material. Veneers can be used to fix several types of dental issues and can be a great choice if you want to change the color of your teeth.

  • Teeth whitening

When teeth are stained, they can appear yellow and dull. Teeth whitening is the process used to lighten the color of your teeth. Whitening can make your teeth up to 8 shades lighter. An in-office teeth whitening procedure is safe, effective, and can be done in as less than one hour. 

The full list of procedures will depend on the patient’s specific dental needs. During a consultation, the dentist can discuss a patient’s dental health and suggest the best treatment plan.
