Aesthetic Dentistry Solves Difficult Oral Problems

solve tough dental problems Maple Grove

Have you ever been told that your smile is beyond repair? That may not be true. At Arbor Lakes Dental – Jamie L. Sledd, DDS we perform dental miracles every day. Here are some tough dental problems we routinely solve:

Tough Problem 1: Insufficient Bone for Dental Implant
Solution: Bone Grafting

As a replacement for a missing tooth, a dental implant has many advantages as compared to a dental bridge. However, there must be sufficient bone to support the titanium post (screw) that is surgically implanted.

Many implant patients depend on some level of bone grafting and the procedure has a high success rate. Disinfected, processed donor bone is placed at the implant location where the bone needs structural augmentation. The grafting material is in granular form that can be packed into the contours. It generates growth, and eventually, the patient’s newly-created bone replaces the donor bone material.

If you have had another dentist tell you that you don’t have enough bone to place an implant post, talk to Dr. Sledd. The team at Arbor Lakes Dental – Jamie L. Sledd, DDS has completed many bone grafting procedures for dental implant placement.

Tough Problem 2: Severe Tooth Loss
Solution: Full Mouth Restoration

If it feels like your dental dilemmas are beyond repair because you have few or no teeth left, take heart. Regardless of the cause—chemotherapy, recreational drug use, eating disorder, severe mouth injury, disability, inadequate oral hygiene, or simply poor overall health—there is hope.

Full mouth reconstruction can restore your previously healthy, attractive smile or give you the remarkable smile you never had. Patients who have full-mouth restoration regain their confidence to smile, eat, and speak normally.

Full mouth restoration is composed of a combination of dental procedures as necessary according to the patient’s particular situation. These can include dental implants, implant-supported bridges, orthodontia, crowns, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, gum contouring, soft tissue grafts, and teeth whitening.

By listening carefully, asking the right questions, communicating clearly, and counseling with you, Dr. Sledd can fully analyze your seemingly impossible dental dilemma and deliver a solution. Call us today at 763-494-4443.
