The term reconstructive dentistry refers to restoring badly damaged dentition to ideal health and function. Many patients like to call this a “big job.” A lot of dentists do not get involved in these types of cases because it takes a significant amount of training to be able to confidently and predictably handle them with excellence. I find these cases to be one of the reasons why I love to practice dentistry, as it can change patients’ lives. Reconstructive dentistry of major magnitude will involve specialists from the different disciplines in dentistry to achieve the ideal result.
It is important to note that a lot of old, patchwork dentistry that was done “one tooth at a time” can lead to unfavorable bite patterns. Reconstructive dentistry can be completed to correct both functional (chewing, biting, and eating) and esthetic (smile) deficiencies or both. It is amazing to see the transformation from an appearance and health perspective when these cases are completed.
