‘Form Follows Function’
You may have heard someone mention the principle of “form follows function” with regard to architecture. The idea is that buildings should be made to enhance their intended purpose.
In a sense, restorative dentistry is taking a similar approach. When you have a broken tooth, we try to repair it with a dental crown, which matches the appearance and the shape of a tooth. This allows it to better restore the function of that damaged tooth as well.
For someone with missing teeth, we might design an implant-supported dental bridge. Dental implants act as artificial roots to support the bridge. The end result is a natural-looking smile and replacement teeth that allow you to bite and chew comfortably.
With full-mouth reconstruction, we are taking the same approach. It’s just that the treatment itself is a bit more complicated. This could involve removing teeth, replacing bone tissue, placing implants to support dentures, and more.
Our point is, that our teeth developed to help us bite and chew. To reconstruction your healthy mouth, we provide the most tooth-like teeth replacements that modern dentistry has to offer.
Take Comfort In Our Care
If you need to completely rebuild your smile, you understand that it is going to be more involved than getting a dental filling. This also could be a source of dental anxiety for you. We understand this, which is why your comfort is essential to the process.
In addition to pillows and blankets to help you feel cozy, we are happy to provide three levels of dental sedation. This includes IV sedation, so you can feel confident that you will remain pain-free during your procedure.
We use advanced technology and techniques to diagnose your situation and plan your treatment. Whether you are getting standard implant-supported dentures or All-on-4® implants, you can feel like you have a full set of healthy teeth once again.
You can eat the foods that you like. You can speak naturally and normally. You can flash a confident smile. And you won’t need denture adhesives to keep your new teeth in your mouth.
Rebuild Your Smile
If you are ready to regain the full use of your lost teeth, then you owe it to yourself to talk to Dr. Wilhelm. Full-mouth reconstruction can improve your overall health and your quality of life.
