Restore Optimal Oral Health
Dr. Alfredo Gapuz can combine multiple restorative procedures into a single full mouth reconstruction at his Orlando, FL, practice to completely repair a compromised smile. At Aesthetic and General Dentistry, we use this treatment approach to address any combination of tooth decay, gum disease, and damaged or missing teeth. Patients who feel that their smile is beyond repair can depend on Dr. Gapuz to restore the health, comfort, aesthetics, and confidence they deserve.
Dental implants replace lost tooth roots. A titanium or ceramic post is surgically inserted into the jaw to support crowns, bridges, or full dentures. In addition to providing the absolute best support for restorations, dental implants are the only restorative dentistry solution that can prevent the recession of jawbone tissue after a tooth has been lost.
A dental bridge replaces one or more consecutive missing teeth. A bridge consists of a replacement tooth (pontic) secured to adjacent dental crowns or implants. The pontic and crowns are crafted from porcelain to look just like your natural teeth.
Root canal therapy can eliminate painful symptoms and the need for extraction if a tooth becomes infected. The infected inner tissue of the tooth is removed, preserving the exterior. The tooth is then sealed with a cap or crown. The advanced treatment used at our Orlando, FL, dentistry practice is comfortable, fast, and incredibly beneficial.
Fillings replace decayed dental tissue. We use tooth-colored composite fillings because they provide better aesthetics than traditional silver amalgam metal alloy fillings. Tooth-colored composite fillings also bond more securely with the natural tooth structure for increased retention, and they offer greater oral health benefits for patients with metal sensitivities.
Porcelain crowns can protect compromised teeth while restoring balance and improving the aesthetics of your smile. Our Orlando, FL, dental office features CEREC technology to create and place porcelain crowns in a single appointment. CEREC is a technology that uses digital impressions to guide computerized milling tools in creating precise dental crowns from a single block of porcelain chosen to match the shade of surrounding teeth.
Temporomandibular disorder, or TMD, presents a special case for full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Gapuz has completed specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD, and he is equipped to employ the full range of treatment modalities. In extreme cases, a more definitive treatment may be required for his patients suffering from TMD, and Dr. Gapuz may recommend a full mouth reconstruction.
What to Expect during Treatment
Depending on the extent of treatment a patient requires, full mouth reconstruction is usually performed in phases. At any stage of treatment, our dentist can provide a number of sedation options to reduce anxiety and better maintain your total comfort. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gapuz will formulate a customized treatment plan. If it includes an implant-supported restoration such as a crown, bridge, or denture, you can expect to undergo two surgeries separated by approximately four to six months as your gums heal around the dental implants. Once the implants are in place and your gums have fully healed, they can provide a lifetime of superior support for restorations while preventing bone resorption.
Through careful analysis, expert recommendations, and treatment performed using the latest innovations in dentistry, Dr. Gapuz can restore the comfort and health to your mouth as well as providing the peace of mind every patient deserves.
Patients sometimes prefer to restore one arch at a time. Dr. Gapuz can accommodate these wishes, but he cautions that this treatment is most effective when both arches are reconstructed at the same time.
