What is Full Mouth Dental Reconstruction?
Full mouth dental reconstruction is sometimes referred to as full mouth restoration. The oral surgeon will repair or restore any missing or broken teeth. They will also work to improve dental function and overall oral health. Aesthetically, they will also work to improve facial appearance.
Any patient with broken or missing teeth should consider reconstruction work. Not only does it affect the appearance of your smile, but it can also improve your chewing ability, as well as your overall oral health.
What Procedures are Involved in a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
As every patient is different, different techniques will be used for a full mouth reconstruction. This may include deep cleaning, bone grafting, extractions, and root canal therapy. Your oral surgeon will assess your situation and develop a plan that meets your specific needs.
The assessment will cover the current state of the teeth, jaw muscles, and temporomandibular joint, as well as, any tooth decay. Patients should expect that x-rays and possibly a dental impression will be used during the assessment. They will also address aesthetic issues to help improve your smile.
Full Mouth Restoration Candidates
Full mouth restoration procedures are appropriate for a wide range of people with diverse dental problems. While many are dealing with broken or missing teeth and periodontal disease, there are conditions such as amelogenesis or ectodermal dysplasia, that can be addressed with full mouth restoration.
People suffering with bruxism can also benefit from dealing with teeth worn out due to excessive grinding. The process can help address and correct bite issues, gum problems, and temporomandibular joint-related issues. Patients can expect the whole process to take several months, depending on the issues that they are addressing. This also relieves the patient from undergoing lengthy procedures for many hours at a time.
