Reconstructive dentistry

Reconstructive dentistry is a comprehensive discipline within dentistry that focuses on restoring and rebuilding parts of your set of teeth that have been lost. 

Why have a reconstructive dentistry treatment?

Dental reconstruction is one of the most common and visible treatments available. In fact, patients can lose their teeth for a variety of reasons:

  • Trauma or accident
  • Poor function resulting in accelerated wear
  • Inadequate care or neglect of teeth
  • Genetic factors such as underdeveloped enamel or gum disease
  • Chemical factors such as heartburn, excessive consumption of fizzy drinks or citrus fruits
  • Biological factors such as tooth decay and periodontitis mediated by oral bacteria
  • Malpraxis or iatrogenic issues caused by a fellow dentist (medical or practical errors in previous treatments)

Damage incurred in this regard can have a serious impact on two different levels:

  1. The patient's psychosocial well-being: you are embarrassed by your teeth, don't dare smile or feel inhibited when talking
  2. How your teeth function: you cannot chew properly or articulate adequately.

Our approach to reconstructive dentistry

These problems usually require a multidisciplinary approach. This means a team of dental specialists will look over your teeth and analyse what issues need to be corrected. This is always done in accordance with 3 different areas:

  1. Biology: the teeth should be healthy and inflammation-free, and you should be able to properly care for them at home yourself.
  2. Function: the teeth must be functional. You should be able to chew and talk properly without experiencing pain or discomfort.
  3. Cosmetic appearance: you need to be able to smile with confidence again and feel confident about your smile.

There are also the patient's personal characteristics to take into account and these determine whether the existing smile or a new smile will perfectly integrate with the patient and their personality. In doing so, we ask the question, "Are we creating the smile you used to have or are we creating the smile you never had?"

We then need to further look at how the smile is described in detail:

  • Position, shape and colour of teeth
  • Position and volume of the lips at rest and movement
  • Shape and age of the face
  • Relationship of teeth to lips and face

If you opt for an extensive reconstructive procedure, you will potentially meet with several dental specialists on the MOND team and in some cases will be supervised by our patient coordinator so that the timing, scheduling and treatments are properly coordinated at all times. After all, we understand the impact that some treatments have and make every effort to make them as pleasant as possible.
