RECONSTRUCTIVE DENTISTRY

Tooth Wear Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Tooth Wear is probably the most common ailment that Dr Sheryl treats nowadays. It seems that the stress of our daily lives leaves us grinding or clenching severely causing tooth wear, chipping and cracking. Dr Sheryl believes in minimally invasive techniques of correcting tooth wear using digital workflows.

This process involves building the teeth up where they have been worn down by bonding either porcelain overlays or resin injection moulded composite onto the tooth surface to rehabilitate the damage.

Dr Sheryl also assesses the need to use other dental modalities such as bridges, implants, gum surgery, etc. to correct any other issues during this process.

WHAT IS IMPLANT DENTISTRY?

Single Dental Implants

The use of Implants is to replace missing teeth. The implants are made of titanium that gets implanted into bone – in the space where the tooth root would normally be. 

When integrated to the bone, and you have healed from the implanting procedure, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant and a crown, bridge or denture – can then be placed over the abutment to replace the missing tooth or teeth.

Multiple Dental Implants

When you have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth you are able to use implants to replace your missing teeth with an implant crown or implant-supported bridge, as potential options – this will also be evaluated as part of your smile makeover or full mouth reconstruction consultation with Dr Sheryl.

Implant-Supported Dentures

In the event that you have either already lost most or all of your teeth or where they are in such a poor condition that you will be losing them, we are able to use implants to support beautifully cosmetic dentures or bridges to rehabilitate your mouth for function and aesthetics. We use a team approach here where one of our specialist surgeons will place the implants digitally guided and Dr Sheryl will manufacture the teeth prosthesis according to our Digital Smile Design protocols.
