What is Full Reconstruction?
Unfortunately, damaged or broken teeth will not heal naturally. As a result, your impaired chewing, oral pain, tooth sensitivity, and hampered speaking ability will not just go away and will require a dentist's care. Over the years, Dr. Fotek has received ample experience performing full mouth reconstructions for a wide number of patients. This process entails one or more restorative dentistry procedures at our state-of-the-art Jupiter office.
Whether you are missing one or a few teeth, it can have a devastating effect on your overall health. It can affect your ability to speak clearly as well as your ability eat your favorite foods. As a result, many patients with missing teeth suffer from poor nutrition and malnutrition. However, dental implants are the long-lasting and secure solution for missing teeth. With advanced training in the many phases involved with dental implant placement, Dr. Fotek has renewed the brilliance and function to hundreds of smiles through dental implants.
Dental crowns are all ceramic tooth-shaped covers designed to restore the function and beauty to teeth damaged by infection, decay and trauma. At the Dental Healing Arts, we use E-Max®ceramic dental crowns for superior durability, enhanced strength and brilliant esthetics. Dr. Fotek will work diligently to ensure your crown looks as much like your natural-tooth color as possible. As a result, your dental crowns will blend and restore your mouth to a full function. With dental crowns, you will be able to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about any dental mishaps.
For decades, patients in Europe and around the world suffering from missing teeth have turned to Prettau bridges as the premier treatment. However, this dynamic and effective dental treatment has only recently become a dental implant prosthetic option in the U.S. over the last few years. The Jupiter practice of the Dental Healing Arts is the only dental practice in South Florida to offer this state-of-the-art treatment. Prettau bridges are a type of implant-secured partial denture fabricated with the ultra-strong zirconia. Zirconia is amazingly durable, which means your implants continue to look amazing for years to come.
In the old days, if you needed to treat a cavity, it meant your smile would be hampered by grey and metal fillings. Although these fillings were effective, metal fillings made it difficult to smile with confidence. Today, Dr. Fotek can restore your smile using tooth-colored fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made with a natural-looking composite material that is safe and designed to last just as long, if not longer. Best of all, Dr. Fotek can match your filling with your natural tooth color, which means no one ever has to know you have a filling. Surprisingly, the dynamic strength of the porcelain material is so outstanding it will actually enhance your tooth.
Although periodontal disease is not curable, Dr. Fotek offers the premier treatments for gum disease. Dr. Fotek and the entire Jupiter staff has years of experience in the dental profession fighting gum disease. If you suffer from periodontal disease, we can work to eliminate mouth odor and bleeding and reduce the depths of your gum pockets to eliminate bacterial infection.
You only get one set of teeth that are meant to last a lifetime. As a result, it's imperative you take care of them. Whether it's a cracked tooth or a deep cavity, sometimes damage occurs and causes the inside of the tooth to become infected. When this happens, the infection can damage the pulp or the inside of your tooth, which houses a network of blood vessels and nerves. If you leave this untreated, this damaged pulp can result in an infection that can cause swelling, pain, and damage the bone surrounding the tooth. The earlier you see a dentist about your tooth, the more likely you will be able to save the tooth with root canal therapy. If you wait too long, your only solution will be to have the tooth extracted and replaced with a prosthetic. Contact Dr. Fotek today to save your tooth.
Traditionally, dentures represent the partial joy of eating and embarrassing slips. However, Dr. Fotek offers more modern and lightweight dentures that offer several benefits over older dentures. Best of all, she is trained to design and place traditional removable dentures as well as dentures secured by mini implants and implants.
