Full mouth reconstruction includes many individual treatment procedures used for restoring the mouth to optimal oral health. It is recommended for patients who have multiple oral issues related to their dental setup. The processes involved are both restorative and cosmetic, thereby helping the patient get a better-looking smile while restoring the teeth to their ideal condition.
Should I go for a full mouth reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction, as the term suggests, includes all the processes which improve the condition of the teeth, gums, and the entire mouth. Some of the oral issues that full mouth reconstruction can be used to treat are:
- Misaligned teeth or malocclusion
- Misaligned jaw
- The recession of the gums below the gum line
- Gum-related diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis
- Loss of bone in the jaws due to deterioration
- Discolored teeth
- Worn out and chipped teeth
- Missing teeth
- Failed restorations
If you're suffering from such dental issues, then getting a full mouth reconstruction would be worth it. We would carefully examine your dental setup and suggest a suitable treatment plan to end all your dental worries.
Treatment procedures involved
Aligning of a misaligned jaw: A misaligned jaw could pose many problems such as pain in the jaws, neck, shoulders, headaches, and a ringing sound in the ears. It can also alter the shape of the entire face.
Implant restorations: Dental implants help in replacing extracted teeth. Missing teeth pose many problems such as malocclusion, change in the shape of the jaw, weak gums, inability to chew food, and most of all; they take away a confident smile. Hence, getting implants would be a great solution to missing teeth and a long-lasting one.
Treating gum-related diseases: Gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis are extreme oral conditions. Plaque and tartar, which get accumulated on the surface of the teeth, cause these diseases. They can be removed by scaling and root planing.
Gum grafting: Gum grafting is the process of extracting gum tissue from a different part of the mouth and grafting it to an area on the gums which has experienced gum recession.
Whitening: Whitening is a dental procedure that helps to remove the stains from the surface of the teeth.
Bone graft: Patients who face jawbone loss after the extraction of the natural tooth, the bone is brought back to its original health and volume with bone grafting.
Restorations: Restorations such as veneers, inlays, onlays, crowns, and bridges help in improving both the functionality and the aesthetics of the teeth.
Repairing failed restorations: Sometimes, restorations such as fillings may crack, wear, or get damaged due to external trauma. Full mouth reconstruction also includes restoring such failed restorations.
