Full-Mouth Reconstruction − Tulsa & Sand Springs OKDr. Justin Emami on helping a patient who is having a hard time chewing Read Transcript
We have a lot of patients that come to us and they say things like, “I have difficulty chewing, Justin. I'm not able to eat the things that we want.“ One thing that I do, and a lot of people, they find it funny, my patients, my team members, is whenever a patient comes to me and says that they are not able to chew, they have difficulty chewing, I always ask them this: “What is the food that you want to make sure that you're able to chew, that you don't have any problems with?“ We get a lot of different things: corn, steak, apples. That becomes a goal. Our goal is to achieve eating of an apple, eating steak without worries, without concern. We then, of course, set up a plan for them, based off of the goal to make sure that we are able to eat steak, or we are able to eat apples, no matter what the food is. It could be anything, stickies, chewies, all the fun things that we have out there that we love to eat, because every single person I know ... I know I have my favorites, but every person has their own certain favorites. That's our goal.
We sit down with them. We, of course, do a full assessment, full evaluation to see exactly why is it that we're unable to chew? Is it your dentures that are just flopping around that need to be locked down to make sure that they're stabilized? Is it the fact that your teeth just do not come together. They need to be straightened in such a manner to make it that whenever you close your teeth together, that they're functioning appropriately. No matter what that plan is, if you have teeth, if you don't have teeth, that goal is to be able to chew, to be able to function in the way that you want to function. That is what we are going to achieve.

Dental Implants & Dentures: Your Full-Mouth Reconstruction Foundation
The foundation of a full-mouth reconstruction is often dentures or dental implants. Each option is effective for replacing all your missing teeth. We can also replace a single tooth with a dental implant or an entire arch of teeth.
Dental implants are rooted in your jawbone the same way your natural teeth are. This provides an ultra-secure hold that slows or stops bone loss. We offer both traditional dental implant and mini dental implants.
You’ll be surprised to discover how natural-looking and comfortable modern dentures can be. Galleria of Smiles offers several premium denture options, including:
- Partial and full traditional dentures
- Removable implant dentures with a reinforced metal framework and snap-on anchors
- Fixed dentures for a same-day smile using the All-on-4TM technique
- Fixed dentures using the Prettau® Zirconia Bridge for beautiful, durable new teeth
