Full Mouth Reconstruction
When you only get one chance to make a good first impression, your smile can say a lot. If your smile is perfect, and without flaw, you may not have a second thought about flashing your smile. However, if you have missing, discolored, or damaged teeth, it can be hard to think about anything else. This can affect your confidence and doesn’t allow you to really bring out your true personality. If you are tired of dreaming about the perfect smile, it is time to call our offices today and schedule an appointment for full mouth reconstruction.
Understanding Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction isn’t just a single procedure, but instead combines a number of different approaches that can be specifically tailored to each patient’s need. Reconstructions can include procedures that are medically necessary, cosmetic, or even neuromuscular. The intent behind full mouth reconstruction is to create a healthy, functional, and aesthetically pleasing smile.
When there are specific problems with a tooth, it might not just affect your appearance. A damaged tooth can potentially harbor bacteria and infection. If it is painful or irritating, it can affect the way that you chew. This can place additional stress on the joints or other teeth and cause even more problems. Full mouth reconstruction is an approach that looks at the mouth as an entire system. When your whole mouth works properly and looks great, you can focus on more important things.
Who Can Benefit from Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Typically, anybody who wants to change the appearance of their smile may be a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. There are a number of reasons that somebody could need our services. These include:
• Having several worn or damaged teeth
• Missing one or more teeth
• Pain in the jaw or teeth
• Chronic or frequent head, neck or back pain that may extend from the mouth
• Discolored teeth
• Issues with periodontal disease
• Teeth that aren’t properly aligned
• Short-teeth or collapse bite
The Types of Procedures
The overall list of potential options that are offered in a full mouth reconstruction covers just about anything that a dentist can do. However, some of the most common procedures used for full mouth reconstruction include:
• Dental Fillings or Root Canals – In order to get the perfect smile, any underlying conditions must first be corrected. Fillings and root canals can remove the existing bacteria or infection while saving your natural teeth.
• Veneers – Porcelain veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are placed on the front of the teeth. These can be used to hide damage, discoloration, or even gaps between teeth.
• Dental Crowns – Crowns are used to slip over your natural teeth. A crown looks and functions like your natural tooth and helps to protect the underlying tooth and root.
• Teeth straightening – Many patients have teeth that are slightly misaligned, twisted or gapped. Full mouth reconstruction can utilize a variety of teeth straightening methods, like braces or Invisalign.
• Scaling or Root Planing – When patients have significant pocketing in their gums, it can harbor bacteria right against the roots of the teeth. These areas are more prone to getting an infection, and it prohibits the gums from healing. Scaling and root planing remove all of the buildup and bacteria from these pockets and allows the gums to naturally heal and reattach to the teeth. This protects the overall tooth and improves the appearance and health of your mouth.
• Teeth Whitening – Most of us could benefit from getting our teeth a few shades whiter! Drinking wine, coffee, dark foods, or tobacco products can all lead to stained and discolored teeth.
• Full dentures and partial dentures
Whole mouth reconstructions offer our patients a comprehensive plan to get the smile that they have always wanted. If you are interested in any of these services, call our office today to schedule an appointment!
