Substance Abuse and Dental Rehabilitation
For many, substance abuse results in poor oral health, we can help.
There are many steps to improving your physical and mental health when overcoming substance abuse; oral health is one of them. Our staff at Taglia Advanced Dentistry routinely works with drug rehabilitation centers to help patients in their recovery by restoring the damage to their oral health from substance abuse. We understand that part of recovery is rebuilding confidence, and a healthy smile is a big part of looking and feeling better. For many patients, the damage caused by drug abuse is a constant reminder of the past which can be demoralizing and debilitating. A complete recovery should include a dental rehabilitation.
How does substance abuse damage teeth?
It may not seem obvious, but substance abuse plays a huge role in poor oral health. We have found that when an addict uses drugs or alcohol on a regular basis, the teeth rapidly degenerate and deteriorate. This may be due to a number of factors including:
We Can Restore Damaged Teeth Caused by Drug Abuse
Biomimetic dentistry is ideal for substance abuse dental rehabilitation. We help rebuild your natural resources. We are experts in adhesive and biomimetic dentistry. With the often-significant damage done by substance abuse, it is even more imperative to preserve as much as possible of the remaining healthy tooth structure. For many, traditional dental treatments require substantial removal of healthy portions of your teeth. With adhesive and Biomimetic Dentistry we can successfully restore damaged teeth while being conservative to ensure the maximum results for our patients.
We Provide Sedation and A Full Range of Dental Services
Our staff at Taglia Advanced Dentistry has a wide range of skills ideal for treating complex cases typically seen from substance abuse. For many, undoing the damage caused by substance abuse requires multiple appointments and longer treatment times for full rehabilitation. To speed up this process, we can comfortably sedate our patients during their appointments to allow more work to be done at each appointment and make the process as smooth as possible. Additionally, we provide surgical procedures in the office such as dental implants to replace teeth which have been lost due to substance abuse.
