Renew Your Smile To Bring Back The Old You
- September 15, 2016
Have you ever been to a car show? You will find all kinds of makes and models of cars. Some owners will be happy to tell you about all the original parts they have maintained, and others will describe the time they spent reconstruction and restoring the vehicle to its former glory.
Both kinds of cars look great, especially when they are shined up and put on display.
In a sense, our team at Total Dental Care of South Carolina understands how those car owners feel. One of the most rewarding services we provide is full-mouth reconstruction. This is a higher level restorative service, but it’s so gratifying to see a patient smile again.
This may be someone who has spent months or years feeling embarrassed and ashamed about the condition of his or her teeth. We feel great when we see that they are able to smile with confidence again.
Our dentist wants to help if you or someone you know could benefit from this service. Our office is located in Columbia, SC, and we will gladly make time to discuss how you can get you smile back.
Getting Your Mouth Back In Shape
We aren’t going to lie to you. We have seen some mouths that were in pretty bad shape.
We would gladly provide the preventive care that will save our patients from those situations.
Nevertheless, if you should find yourself in this boat, our concern is going to be helping you get out not criticizing how you got there.
If you still have some teeth, we will want to save as many as possible. Yet, we won’t lose sight of the bigger picture. That is giving you a new reason to smile.
As you already know, our bodies don’t work as well when we are older as they did when we are younger. This can affect your oral health as you will be facing an increased risk of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and tooth loss.
We offer treatments for each of those problems as well as the procedures to reverse the effects of each of those conditions.
If You Rebuild It …
In the movie Field of Dreams, the main character is encouraged to build a baseball field on his farm to bring back someone special in his life. (That’s all we are going to say in case someone reading this has not seen the movie.)
Full-mouth reconstruction can bring back another special person — you.
When your teeth are missing or damaged, you may not feel like doing the things you used to do. Going out with your friends was fun, but now you may feel self-conscious about going places where other people may see your teeth.
Besides, it can be harder to eat the foods that you really want to eat when you are missing several teeth.
Try to imagine what your life would be like if you could look in the mirror and see a complete smile. How would your life be different if you could walk into any restaurant of your choosing knowing that you could order whatever you wanted from the menu?
This doesn’t have to be a dream, it can become your new reality.
Remember the car show participants, we mentioned earlier. Many of them can tell you how the right parts make a huge difference in the quality of a reconstruction effort.
Fortunately for you, we have top-quality parts and services to rebuild our patients’ smiles.
We can and do use dental implants and mini implants to provide a solid, stable, and strength to your replacement teeth. Implants work like prosthetic roots to keep your other replacements where they need to be.
A series of implants can keep a set of dentures securely in position, so you won’t have to worry about them slipping out whether you want to share a story from your last vacation or eat a delicious steak with corn on the cob and cooked carrots on the side.
If some of your teeth have been damaged, we may be able to use dental crowns to repair them. Dental bridges can be used to replace missing teeth.
And dental implants can be paired with crowns and implants to fill gaps between your teeth.
Rejuvenate Your Smile
By rebuilding your smile, you may be rebuilding yourself as well. We have seen it happen over and over again.
When a patient goes through full-mouth reconstruction, it lifts their spirits when they see their new “teeth.” That inspires us to continue helping people at our dentist office in Columbia, SC.
