We are pleased to announce that our office is opening back up Starting June 1st. • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. * All patients will be required to wear face coverings to enter the office. • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed. • Every patient will have their temperature taken upon entering the office. If above 100 degrees, we will ask you to reschedule your appointment for the safety of our staff and other patients. • We want you to call the office or text when you arrive for your dental appointment. We will then call you when your room is ready so you go straight back to the chair. For the time being, we will not have a “waiting room”. • Following your appointment, we will do a “virtual” checkout by calling you to take any payments and/or schedule any follow up appointments. • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time. • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That means that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. If you already have a scheduled appointment we may need to reschedule to a future date to be able to follow the new guidelines. We appreciate your patience as we all work through this pandemic and resume back to business. Sincerely Dr. Belnap, Dr. Jergense and staff,

Full Mouth Reconstruction Rejuvenates Your Smile

For patients whose teeth and general oral health have significantly deteriorated, the doctors at PQ Family Dental may recommend full mouth reconstruction, a combination of restorative procedures in Rancho Peñasquitos or Ramona, CA.

By developing a single treatment plan consisting of multiple procedures, we can accomplish the desired result, step by step: an entirely transformed smile. If you have missing teeth or are struggling with the side effects of periodontal disease, you may be a good candidate for full mouth reconstruction.

Is Full Mouth Reconstruction Right For You?

Full mouth reconstruction combines several restorative – and sometimes cosmetic – services into a customized treatment plan to meet your unique goals. This strategy is beneficial for patients who require restorative dental work that cannot be performed in a single session. If you experience more than one of the following symptoms, full mouth reconstruction may be a great option for you:

  • Missing, loose, or damaged teeth
  • Failing dental restorations
  • Severe tooth decay
  • Overbite, underbite, or crossbite
  • Periodontitis (gum disease)
  • Gum recession or overgrowth
  • Dental stains and discoloration

Our team of caring, compassionate professionals is trained in the latest technology for restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. When you meet with one of our trusted dentists, he will review appropriate treatment options and work with you to create a practical and effective full mouth reconstruction plan.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Below are the procedures most commonly included in full mouth reconstruction:

  • Dental Implants: Titanium implant posts are surgically placed in the jaw. They then function as tooth roots, supporting a crown, bridge, denture, or other restoration.
  • Same-day Crowns: These restorations strengthen weakened, unhealthy, or structurally damaged teeth, and can be placed in a single appointment using our CEREC® technology.
  • Same-day Bridges: A same-day bridge can replace one tooth, or a few, with our CEREC® one-visit restoration technology.
  • Inlays & Onlays: These restorations are larger than standard fillings, and are used to treat cavities on the biting surfaces of molars.
  • Periodontal Care: We can perform scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, with the administration of a topical antibiotic to heal any underlying infection.
  • Gum Contouring: Our diode laser can be utilized to remove infected or excess gum tissue for improved appearance and health.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

When you come in for your initial consultation, the dentist will perform a thorough dental examination, take x-rays, and review your full medical and dental history. Then he will outline your treatment options, and together, you will establish your overall dental goals to develop a treatment plan. At this time the doctor can also answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment timeline, recovery, and costs.

A restored smile can transform your entire life, and we look forward to guiding through this process every step of the way.

Your smile is a crucial part of your image, overall health, and well-being, so it needs to remain healthy. We can help you regain comfortable oral function as well as improved quality of life and self-confidence.
