General and Reconstructive Dentistry Procedure

Reconstructive dental surgery involves repairing and restoring a person’s smile. Depending on the patient’s situation, specific types of dental surgeries can be performed. 
There are a variety of reconstructive dental procedures. They include:
- Crowns and bridges
Crowns and bridges are very similar in both their function and appearance. Bridges replace missing teeth. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth with dental crowns on either side. When cemented in place, the bridge is attached to the adjacent teeth. It fills the gap and restores your smile.
- Fillings
Broken, worn, or decayed teeth can be restored with fillings. These procedures range from small fillings to root canals. Fillings restore tooth structure, preventing further decay. These procedures are often necessary before cosmetic restorations such as crowns and bridges can be placed.
- Dental implants
Dental implants are titanium screws that are surgically placed into your jaw bone. The implant acts as an anchor for the replacement teeth. Dental implants permanently replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even an entire arch of teeth.
