Dentistry seeks to increase the life span of the functioning dentition. As medicine increases the life span of the functioning individual, the responsibility of dentistry increases proportionately.
What is full mouth reconstruction?
As the name implies, FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION refers to rebuilding and/or replacing all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function, and beauty of the mouth.
The term FULL MOUTH REHABILIATATION may sound like a more complex dental treatment but it is merely a combination of various dental treatments to rebuild your smile and chewing power and efficiency.
The restoration of normal healthy function of the masticating/chewing apparatus is the ultimate aim of full mouth rehabilitation.
There are a number of people who have dental problems throughout their mouths that must be treated comprehensively with a vision of a final result that improves both function and esthetics. These patients may exhibit multiple missing teeth, numerous teeth with large fillings that are failing or exhibiting decay, cracked or broken teeth, or badly worn teeth due to bruxism (teeth grinding) or other habits.
Whether your teeth are damaged, infected, or lost, or your gums are diseased and need periodontal treatment, we offer a variety of services to address your unique needs.
Depending on your condition, your full mouth reconstruction can include;
- Dental crowns that cover, protect, and restore teeth
- Porcelain veneers that can improve the appearance of several teeth at once
- Dental implants for comprehensive tooth replacement
- TMJ treatment to improve your bite’s function and alleviate jaw discomfort
- Complete dentures for replacements of all the missing tooth in both the jaws
Is it necessary?
Imagine going through life never wanting to smile. Imagine going through life with your mouth in pain and it getting worse, not better. Waiting on these procedures isn’t really an option. It just adds to your discomfort and can end up costing you more as things shift, change, and get worse while you wait. Once your original teeth are gone, you can’t get them back. And bad oral health is often an indicator that something serious is going on with the rest of your body. There are too many links to oral health and serious health conditions to ignore these problems.
