The mouth is the gateway to our body. The human oral cavity is inevitably exposed to food and drink, stress, medication, harmful habits or many other factors on a daily basis. As a result, over time, the teeth inevitably wear out, their chewing surfaces wear out, and there is a risk that such teeth may crack or break. Without years of treatment based on the practice of reconstructive dentistry – tooth loss can also be experienced.
Each person’s chewing movements begin in the womb and continue for the rest of their lives. When chewing, we make movements left, right, as well as forward, and backward. Every anatomical structure of the tooth is constantly involved in chewing, so in the long run the tooth surfaces wear out and the occlusion is lowered. This problem accompanies both young and older people. This is a consequence of the fast pace of life, stress, harmful habits and malnutrition, sometimes even irregular posture.
Restoration of 28 teeth is a complete restoration of the entire function and aesthetics of the oral cavity. With the help of modern treatment methods, dull tooth surfaces, cracked or worn teeth are restored. It is a complicated and complex project, which is implemented jointly by a team of specialists in different fields.
There is simply no universal reconstruction project that would fit everyone.
Each patient's case is unique and exceptional, so a thorough diagnosis is necessary before starting any dental restoration procedures:
The first step is to assess the condition of the oral cavity. The doctor carefully examines the patient’s oral cavity, identifies existing problems, identifies teeth defects and the level of wear, and assesses the condition of the tissues around the teeth.
Examination of the temporomandibular joint.
Not only the teeth but also the jaw joint is involved in chewing, so it is simply necessary to evaluate the anatomy, biomechanics and changes of this joint. If the dysfunction is detected, further examinations are applied: analysis of the occlusal and jaw joint pathway, magnetic resonance and computed tomography examinations or additional consultations of specialists in other fields.
After the diagnosis is made, a project for the future smile of the patient is prepared before the invasive procedures for the restoration of all teeth are started. With the help of diagnostic tooth waxing, the equivalents of the planned restorations are mounted on a special model that reproduces the current condition of the patient’s teeth. This way, the patient can see what his or her new smile will look like before treatment begins. Smile planning can also be virtual – with the help of modern technology, future teeth can also be modeled on a computer screen.
Opportunity to try on the future smile.
If necessary, the patient can see future teeth not only on the model, but also in his mouth. Temporary crowns made during waxing can be transferred to the patient’s mouth, so he has the opportunity to live with his future teeth for a while and make sure he is satisfied with the outcome of the treatment. If necessary, the shape or proportions of future restorations can be adjusted.
Production of permanent restorations.
Laminates, inlays, onlays or other restorations required for a specific case are produced in the laboratory of the highest level of dental technicians by precisely reproducing the surfaces formed during diagnostic waxing.
Treatment and control.
The last step is dental restoration procedures. After them, the patient can finally enjoy a beautiful, and most importantly, a healthy smile.
