What is Comprehensive Dentistry?
A facility that provides comprehensive dentistry aims to be a one-stop facility that provides all of the dental treatments and services a patient could conceivably need or want. Dr. Russo and his colleagues, for instance, provide such services as:
• Preventive dentistry, including check-ups and cleanings
• Root canal treatments
• Veneers and crowns
• Dental implants
• Teeth whitening
• Fillings, dentures and bridges
• Full mouth reconstruction services
What is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction, also known as full mouth rehabilitation or full mouth restoration, describes a group of procedures done to rebuild or restore all of the teeth. After examining the patient, the dentist will generally begin by treating any gum disease and/or bite issues. The patient may even need jaw surgery, depending on the situation. Once the patient’s overall oral health has been addressed, the teeth can be replaced or restored.
What is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is a subspecialty within dentistry concerned with restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. With this type of treatment, the dentist works with appliances like bridges, dentures, veneers and crowns to restore a patient’s teeth and smile.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a special post that looks a bit like a screw and is usually made of titanium. It is designed to mimic the roots of a tooth. Dental implants prevent the jawbone from deteriorating after a tooth or group of teeth has been lost, and they prevent other teeth from drifting into the gap created by a missing tooth. They also give the patient a normal-looking smile.
Dental implants have the large advantage of being permanent and will usually last the patient’s lifetime. They don’t slide around the way dentures can, and they enable the patient to eat and speak normally. Dental implants can be designed to replace one tooth or several neighboring teeth.
