Meticulous Planning and Execution

Thorough diagnostics

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

Your full-mouth reconstruction will start with thorough, comprehensive diagnostics.

Dr. Bergmann will start with a comprehensive exam, which will include a thorough inspection of your teeth and gums, full digital x-rays, impressions for study models, and photos of your smile.

If dental implants are part of your reconstruction program, he will arrange for you to get a 3D CT scan. The scanner will produce detailed 360 degree images of your entire jaw, teeth and surrounding structures, which can be magnified and viewed from any angle. These images will be used to accurately plan your dental implant placement and any needed bone grafting.

Dr. Bergmann will present you with your treatment options and will answer all your questions. He will explain everything in detail so you can make fully informed decisions about your treatment.

Detailed treatment plan

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

Your treatment is fully and meticulously mapped out in 3D before any procedures begin.

Using all the diagnostic information, images and a study model of your teeth, Dr. Bergmann will meticulously plan out each step of your treatment program. This includes not only what procedures will be done, but the sequence in which they will be performed.

If your treatment involves implants, he will plan out their placement using special 3D implant planning software, in coordination with the trusted local implant placement specialist who will perform your surgery. Dr. Bergmann will plan, oversee and direct your entire treatment, ensuring that your procedures will run smoothly and comfortably.

High-tech microscope for precise, minimally invasive execution

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

Dr. Bergmann uses an advanced dental microscope for precise execution of your dental work.

Dr. Bergmann uses only top-quality dental labs for the creation of your restorations. In this way he guarantees that your veneers, crowns, bridges or full-arch new teeth live up to the highest standards in terms of durability and aesthetics.

When preparing and placing your restorations, Dr. Bergmann uses an extremely high-magnification dental microscope for detailed close-up views of the area being worked on. With this magnification, he can precisely remove only the minimal amount of enamel required to prepare your tooth for a crown, bridge or veneer. This maximizes the strength of the prepared tooth and makes the procedure minimally invasive.

The microscope also allows him to minutely sculpt the edges (margins) of your restoration so it fits perfectly over your prepared tooth and has smooth contact with your gums just under the gumline. This prevents gaps that would otherwise allow bacteria to accumulate. It is the best long-term protection against new decay, especially for those who are susceptible to cavities at the gumline. It additionally gives your restoration the appearance of emerging from below your gumline, resulting in a very realistic, natural look.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction Procedures

One or any number of different procedures can be involved in the reconstruction of your smile. Your treatment can include crowns, veneers, dental bridges and a large range of options using dental implants. It can also include gum disease treatment and a variety of other procedures.
