There are numerous procedures Dr. Malone may recommend, based on your needs: periodontal treatment to combat gum infection, bite splint therapy to treat TMD and stabilize your jaw joints, orthodontics to align your teeth, root canals to remove infection from tooth roots, crowns to restore damage teeth, removable prosthetics or dental implants to replace missing teeth, tooth colored composite fillings, bonding, veneers, equilibration (modifying the tops of your teeth so they come together in an even, balanced bite) and more. You may additionally benefit from cosmetic teeth whitening, tooth crown lengthening and gum re-contouring.

Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction can have significant advantages for your overall health and quality of life. First, reconstruction can prevent further tooth loss and dental damage. If you include implants as part of your treatment, they can also prevent jawbone degeneration. Second, reconstruction can restore your dental function, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile freely. By repairing your bite alignment and balance, reconstruction can also reduce your risk for bruxism and TMJ Disorder. Finally, the combined procedures can enhance your appearance, restore your self-confidence, and end the embarrassment of dental damage. We believe every patient should be offered the highest standard of care and that you are a special person deserving of comfort, health, full function, and confident appearance. We believe your dentistry should last, and it can if achieved through a comprehensive plan to solve all underlying problems.
