What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction and How Can It Help?
Posted on 2/8/2021 by Dr McMurray
A full mouth reconstruction is a way to restore the form and function of your teeth when most or all your teeth are either missing, decayed, or damaged. A full mouth reconstruction often involves a combination of different restorative methods and can be used to treat patients suffering from a variety of dental issues and injuries. Read on to learn more about full mouth reconstruction procedures.
Who Can Benefit from a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
Full mouth reconstruction procedures can be necessary in a wide range of situations. In addition to restoring the smile of someone who has lost most or all their teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease, a full mouth reconstruction can also be beneficial for someone who experienced a serious dental injury from a car accident or other traumatic event. You may also require a full mouth reconstruction if you have multiple cracked, broken, or worn-down teeth.
Failing to replace missing teeth can have serious consequences to your dental and overall health down the line. A full mouth reconstruction can help prevent issues including tooth shifting, jawbone deterioration, tooth decay, infections, gum disease, bite issues, difficulty chewing and speaking, and further tooth loss. Additionally, it will restore the appearance of your smile, improve your self-confidence, and allow you to eat, speak, and clean your teeth with ease.
What Goes into a Full Mouth Reconstruction?
The exact process for your full mouth reconstruction depends on your unique case. Treatment plans usually involve several different procedures performed over time; for example, you may require dental implant surgery followed by crown or bridge placement. You may need veneers on some of your teeth and a bridge on others. Some people may opt for removable dentures, while others may want the “all-on-4” treatment concept of implant-supported dentures. A full mouth reconstruction might also involve other procedures such as jaw or gum grafting before the dental restoration can take place.
