What begins as a small dental problem can evolve into something very concerning if treatment is not performed in a timely manner. For several reasons, many people do not see the dentist. The unfortunate consequence that occurs when dental care is avoided, however, is that the smile suffers immensely.

Full mouth reconstruction is a process rather than a single treatment. This level of care often involves finding solutions for failing and missing teeth. During a comprehensive visit, Dr. Mathew performs an examination that will identify immediate needs as well as long-term goals. The details of your dental problems and the recommended treatments will be fully explained to you, as well as an estimated time for the completion of care.
In many cases, full mouth reconstruction addresses one or two problems at a time. For instance, if teeth are failing due to decay, we may schedule either repair or extraction, depending on the extent of damage. If tooth loss has occurred, we must determine why. Often, the underlying issue is tissue damage caused by gum disease. In this type of case, it is imperative that we address the infection in the gums so that we may plan the most suitable form of tooth replacement.
Due to the complexity of full mouth reconstruction, patience is essential. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Mathew will consult with you so that there are no questions about the next step. Every person is different, which means that a course of treatment may take just a few visits, a few months, or up to a year. What is important is achievement of the outcome. As we work together to address the needs of your smile, you will reap the benefit of Dr. Mathew's expertise and her gentle touch.
Don't let problems with teeth and gums dictate your quality of life; take control of your oral health with our help. Call Athens TLC Dental today.
