Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction
The procedures included in your full-mouth reconstruction plan will depend entirely on the various dental and oral health problems present. In most cases, the plan includes some services that are immediately obvious and others that work behind the scenes to support your teeth and give you a smile than not only looks attractive but is healthy, too.
For instance, Dr. Hollingshead will assess the condition of your gums. If gum disease is discovered—whether the early stage of gingivitis or more advanced periodontitis—then treatment will be necessary. Gums and the bone underneath can be devastated by periodontal disease. Our office offers scaling and root planing to remove bacterial infection from below the gum line. Once your gums are healthy, Dr. Hollingshead can proceed with the rest of your full-mouth reconstruction plan.
