Reconstructive Dentistry Q & A

What is reconstructive dentistry?

Reconstructive dentistry is the category of dental work dedicated to rebuilding your mouth’s structures after an injury, accident, or severe disease and decay. You may need to:

  • Repair or replace your teeth
  • Adjust your jaw’s alignment
  • Fix damage to your jawbone
  • Restore your gums
  • Treat any diseases in your mouth

At a consultation, your Carlsbad & Encinitas Dental Care professional examines your mouth’s damage and creates a personalized treatment plan. Your plan works with your schedule and preferences to meet your needs with several procedures, many of which can be performed at the same time. 

Why do I need reconstructive dentistry services?

Each patient’s case is unique. There are countless reasons why you may need to seek a full mouth reconstruction. Three of the main causes of extensive oral damage are:


Accidents are impossible to predict and can happen to anyone. If you’re in a traumatic accident, your mouth may be extensively damaged and in need of prompt reconstruction. 

After an accident damages your teeth, jaw, or tissues, you must call Carlsbad & Encinitas Dental Care as soon as you can to begin your dental work. 


Tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral infections can result in improper oral care. At the first signs of an infection, you should contact Carlsbad & Encinitas Dental Care for quick treatment to avoid extensive surgeries and procedures down the road. 

However, some infections spread too quickly to stop, and you’ll need reconstructive procedures to fix the damage. 

Neglect of care

Infections aren’t the only possible result of neglecting your dental care and hygiene. Improperly caring for your teeth can make them weak and vulnerable, causing them to wear down and break easily. 

To avoid this kind of damage and reconstructive procedures, you should visit Carlsbad & Encinitas Dental Care for routine exams and cleanings once every six months.

What methods does reconstructive dentistry include?

In creating your reconstructive dentistry treatment plan, your dentist at Carlsbad & Encinitas Dental Care employs one or more techniques to reconstruct the structures in your mouth. You may need:

  • Root canals
  • Implants
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Dentures

These and other treatments help to restore your mouth to a state of functioning.

When it comes to reconstructive dentistry, immediate treatment is more effective. If any part of your mouth is damaged or vulnerable, call Carlsbad & Encinitas Dental Care or book your appointment online as soon as possible.
