About Complex Reconstructive Dental Work

The term Complex Reconstructions refers to the dental cases requiring multiple procedures and at a minimum ½ of the teeth in a person’s mouth to be completely rebuilt or replaced. Crowns, bridges, veneers, implants and removable appliances may all be required to achieve health, function and beauty. More intensive than regular cosmetic dentistry, reconstructive dentistry can include procedures at dental specialist’s offices coordinated with our restorative dentistry.

The need for reconstructive dentistry can stem from several factors, though most often it is the result of an accident, excessively filled teeth, periodontal disease, medical conditions or heredity. Aside from aesthetic reasons, some conditions interfere with patients’ daily lives by hindering the ability to chew easily or speak clearly.

Is Reconstructive Dentistry Right for You?

If you have multiple missing teeth, severely worn down teeth, overcrowding, temporomandibular joint disorders, or have had an accident you may require reconstructive dentistry. Due to the complex nature of the reconstructive process, Dr. Jill Smith and the team at Dental Health and Wellness Boston can help to guide you toward the best treatment plans for your specific situation. We can help you by recommending and working closely with other specialized dental experts known as endodontists, periodontists, orthodontists, and prosthodontists when needed for complete care.
