Full Mouth Restoration
An aesthetically pleasing smile depends on a solid foundation. With a full mouth reconstruction, we can perform multiple restorative treatments to address misaligned teeth and other problems in the teeth and jaw. Once the jaw’s structure is fixed, we can work on the aesthetics to restore your smile’s power.
We recommend full mouth reconstruction if you have suffered considerable dental trauma because the treatment is meant to fix multiple issues.
What Is Full Mouth Reconstruction?
A full mouth reconstruction is a combination of two or more restorative procedures meant to repair dental damage, replace missing teeth, and strengthen weaker teeth. Common options include bonding, fillings, veneers, implants, bridges, crowns, inlays, and onlays. Your personal health and treatment goals will determine which procedure we recommend for you.
A full mouth restoration is a great option for patients who have suffered severe tooth decay. It also works wonders for patients with TMJ disorders because those conditions cause frequent teeth grinding and dental damage. We are also able to incorporate cosmetic treatments with full mouth restoration.
What are the Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction addresses many different oral complications, such as tooth decay, misaligned bites, temporal headaches, facial pain, and other symptoms of TMJ disorders. If you have teeth that are missing or severely weakened, we can also use a full-mouth restoration to improve them. As a result, this treatment can have far-reaching results.
What is the Procedure for Full Mouth Restoration?
Our aim is to help you restore balance to your smile. Tooth decay and incorrectly aligned teeth impede this balance and cause further damage to natural teeth and prosthetic teeth alike. To restore the function and appearance of your teeth, we need to address the structural problems of your teeth first.
The first step is for us to call you in for an extensive diagnosis to determine what’s causing your dental problems. This will include a physical examination and possibly CT scans and a computerized jaw analysis.
Dr. Wallace and Dr. McKnight will then create an individualized treatment plan based on this diagnosis. If bite problems are causing your dental issues, then we’ll use another method to treat them. If bruxism (teeth grinding) or TMJ disorders are causing the problem, then we may craft an oral appliance and reshape your teeth to fit it or restore your damaged teeth.
Depending on the situation, we may employ restorative treatments to rebuild your teeth, thus restoring the structure of your mouth to optimum levels. After that, we can fit a mouthguard to your restored teeth to guarantee your new smile maintains its shape.
Thanks to our advanced equipment and materials, we can produce lifelike, lifelong restorations. We will also schedule you for annual oral exams to ensure your restorations stay healthy, and your jaw remains properly aligned. Once we’ve restored the structure of your jaws and teeth, we can perform any cosmetic adjustments to your teeth that you request.
