Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive process that completely restores the health, functionality, and natural beauty of all your teeth. Dental reconstruction may be necessary for several reasons:

  • Neuromuscular or TMJ problems

A Full Mouth Reconstruction Case Study: Youn

Youn traveled all the way from Japan to receive Dr. Sid’s expertise. As a successful businessman, he wanted his smile to reflect his stature. He came to Dr. Solomon with a lackluster smile featuring yellow, decayed teeth and several missing teeth. Dr. Sid recommended a treatment plan including a deep cleaning, implants, and veneers. Youn was extremely happy with the results, exclaiming that he both looked and felt 20 years younger. Although he still lives in Japan, he still comes to Dr. Sid for hygiene visits.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Do you have gaps or missing teeth? Have you ever considered getting dental implants? Dr. Solomon has been successfully performing dental implant procedures for over 27 years. Implants can sometimes be a very beneficial and life-changing treatment. For your convenience, we have provided some background information on dental implants below. However, the best way to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants is by making an appointment with Dr. Solomon at (310)475-5598 so he can examine your particular case.

Dental implants are a popular method of replacing missing teeth. They replace the roots of teeth and provide a strong foundation for restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Replacing missing teeth not only boosts your appearance and confidence, but also is very important for your oral health. Existing teeth can begin to migrate into the gap where teeth are missing, resulting in joint pain or bite problems.

Dental implants are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone. They are made out of titanium, which is a highly biocompatible material. As a result, the implant is able to fuse with the surrounding bone for long term durability and stability.

Dental implants are a fixed alternative to full or partial dentures and provide several advantages including:

  • Implants replace missing teeth without affecting adjacent healthy teeth.
  • Implants improve speech by eliminating anxiety of slipping dentures.
  • Implants improve chewing by eliminating no pain while chewing from sliding dentures
  • Implants support bridges or dentures, making them more secure and comfortable
  • Implants are more convenient- no more messy adhesives needed!
