When you have extensive dental issues it can seriously affect your self-esteem. When you are embarrassed to show your smile, it can make you appear less open and friendly than you truly are. Everyone wants an open, warm, bright smile that can make an excellent first impression. If you feel that a number of dental issues are holding you back, the caring professionals in our office can help by offering you a full mouth reconstruction.
What dental issues can a full mouth reconstruction remedy?
Full mouth reconstructions can be used to fix a number of cosmetic and dental health issues. This includes:
- Missing teeth
- Teeth that are broken, chipped, or cracked
- Teeth that have been worn down or eroded due to acidic food and drink or teeth grinding
- Chronic jaw pain
- Chronic headaches caused by incorrect bite
What is involved in a full mouth reconstruction?
Before any treatments are performed, your dentist will fully examine your teeth, gums, and jaw. They will also take x-rays that will allow them to examine the underlying bone structure that support your teeth. Your dentist will also take impressions of your teeth, as well as your upper and lower jaw, and a model will be made of your overall bite.
Once everything has been thoroughly examined, your dentist will begin to discuss treatment options and put together a personalized plan for your full mouth reconstruction. A number of treatments may be recommended based on the dental work that is needed and treatments will be recommended on an individual basis. Some commonly recommended treatments include:
- Treatment for periodontal disease such as Laser Periodontal Therapy
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
- Porcelain veneers
- Porcelain inlays/onlays
- Deep cleaning
- Dental implants
- Dental bonding
In cases where your underlying bone or jaw structure is compromised, your dentist may recommend that you have orthognathic surgery to correct these issues. You may also need to have soft tissue grafts to replace any gum loss and to prepare your teeth and gums for other dental treatments.
